APL Concept Athlete Shoe – super shoes help you jump laddie, jump…


This APL Concept Athlete Shoe comes with ‘Load ‘n Launch’ technology, which means that once you strap them on you’ll be able to jump higher than a frog on a hot tin roof. Or something. Wanna find out? Hand over $300.00 to the developers and you can. <cue Chariots of Fire music>

 In testing situations, athletes have experienced increases of several inches on their vertical leap wearing Athletic Propulsion Labs basketball shoes with the Load ‘N Launch technology. In some cases, athletes who were the proverbial “inches away” from being able to dunk a basketball on the regulation 10-foot basket, were able to dunk the ball when wearing Athletic Propulsion Labs shoes. These are not training shoes.

  • Imagine how much higher you could jump if they charged $3,000!
