Discover Athletic Propulsion Labs at The Sports Edit. Having gained international fame for being banned from the NBA (its Concept 1 basketball trainer was proven to make you jump higher), the brand has expanded its line to include a variety of versatile race shoes that can slip seamlessly into your everyday wardrobe, too.
Founded by identical twins, Adam and Ryan Goldston, APL (Athletic Propulsion Labs) puts innovation at the heart of everything it creates. Changing the sneaker game with advancements such as TechLoom, a knitted upper that combines breathability, stability and flexibility, as well as Propelium®, a unique compound that offers enhanced shock absorption, cushioning and responsiveness, you can be sure that when you slip on a pair of Athletic Propulsion Labs running trainers, you’ll be enjoying the latest and greatest in running technology.
