About Athletic Propulsion LabsÃ‚®:
Athletic Propulsion Labs was founded in Los Angeles, California by twin brothers Adam and Ryan Goldston, two former University of Southern California basketball players. The company is dedicated to the creation of world-class, breakthrough technology that significantly enhances the performance of athletes in a variety of sports. The inaugural product from Athletic Propulsion LabsÃ‚®, the patented APLÃ‚® Concept 1 basketball shoe and the recently introduced Concours, feature the revolutionary Load ‘N Launch(TM) Technology. The patent-pending Load ‘N Launch(TM) device is implanted in a cavity in the forefoot of the shoe and serves as a ‘launch pad’ by taking the energy exerted by the player and increasing lift with the aid of an intricate, spring-based propulsion system. In biomechanical testing at a leading west coast university laboratory, the Athletic Propulsion LabsÃ‚® Concept 1 shoes delivered increases in vertical leap of up to 3.5 inches when compared against a leading competitive brand’s most expensive basketball shoe. The APLÃ‚® Concept 1 and Concours shoes are sold on the company’s website at http://www.AthleticPropulsionLabs.com and normally retail for $195.00 per pair.
APL’s Concept 1 basketball shoes were introduced on March 24, 2010. The NBA ban of the APLÃ‚® Concept 1 shoes occurred on October 19, 2010 and marked the first time in the 64-year history of the NBA that a shoe was banned because it provided an “undue competitive advantage”.
