With a brand ethos of pushing the limits of design, performance, form and function, APL are leading the way in ground-breaking sports footwear technology. Founded in 2009 and formally launched in 2010 by twin brothers and multidisciplinary college athletes, Adam and Ryan Goldston, Athletic Propulsion Labs immediately became a major contender in sports and performance wear.
APL quickly made a name for itself with the launch of the exclusive Load ‘N Launch® Technology, with spring-effect properties enabling wearers to jump higher, run lighter and launch faster. Implemented in the Concept 1, their first model of shoe, the technology caused a shake up of the NBA, who banned the shoe for “providing an undue competitive advantage”. It was the first shoe to have been banned in the NBA’s long history.
