Sneakers So Good They Were Banned By The NBA (No, Really)

When we heard that Athletic Propulsion Labs — the company banned from the NBA for giving players an unfair “competitive advantage” — was debuting a running collection with similar technology, we were intrigued. Their basketball shoes are made with Load ‘N Launch technology, which is meant to increase a player’s vertical jump — and an NBA ban is a pretty awesome way to confirm those claims.
Their first men’s and women’s running collections were released today and features three models: the Windchill, Joyride, and TechLoom Pro.
