Designed to instantly increase your vertical leap, the APL Concept 3 is now available in a new “Tidepool” style code. Soon after its 2009 debut, the APL footwear that features patented Load ‘N Launch® technology to make you jump higher was banned by the NBA for being considered an unfair performance enhancer. Now on its third edition of the original APL Concept, this new design is composed of two layers and features updated insoles, sockliners, and internal shank plates. Progressing in a style sense, the APL Concept 3 now comes in a Miami Dolphins-like color combination. Tidepool blue holds down the base, complimented by molten laces, liners and outsoles. Hints of energy green on the tongue and heel branding add even more flare to this charged up silhouette.
