Athletic Propulsion Labs® (APL) is globally recognized as a world leader in Men’s and Women’s athletic footwear and apparel.
Rooted in technology and innovation, APL has been at the forefront of performance footwear since the introduction of the Concept 1 basketball shoe featuring groundbreaking Load N’ Launch® technology, designed to instantly increase vertical leap. As a result, the Concept 1 became the first shoe banned by the NBA for performance reasons by “providing an undue competitive advantage” to the wearer.
In more recent years APL has expanded into the running market with similarly innovative technologies designed to increase athletic performance. The line has continued to evolve, highlighted by its eye-catching colorways and stunning designs, seamlessly blending the fashion and performance categories.
