Performance

Munich has improved their offerings a lot in the past few years.

The Munich Atomik, their top of the line padel shoe, stands out for 3 characteristics: flexibility, width, and high traction.

Flexibility

From the sole to the midsole and the upper, this is one of the most flexible shoes on the market. It left some of our reviews feeling like it was a rubberized sock. It suits players who want a cozy shoe that will give their feet above average flexibility on the court.

Players seeking stability and structure should look elsewhere.

Width

Where many padel shoes have a narrow toe box, this shoe is relatively wide. This further enhances the shoe’s comfort.

High traction

It has a conventional clay, herringbone sole, which gives it very high traction on the court.

In conclusion

This is a shoe for someone prioritizing grip and flexibility.

Note that while its weight is high (size 44 at 400 grams), its drop, flexibility, and traction give sensations of agility and maneuverability.

Expert Reviews

Fabio Ferro

The top of the line from Munich is an extremely soft shoe (low lateral stabilization) with high traction, a wide toe box, and a high drop. Not recommended for supinators.

Stock Padel

Munich has improved their offerings substantially in recent years. The Atomik, their top of the line model, is super light, very durable, and as a result, everyone has been super content with this shoe.
