Can APL Shoes Really Add Inches to Your Vertical? In my experience, and as far as real, credible reviews have proven, the answer is no.

Why are APL basketball shoes banned?

Athletic Propulsion Labs, the sneaker brand once banned by the NBA for giving players an unfair edge, has a new running shoe that promises to boost your speed. Athletic Propulsion Labs is known for creating performance sneakers that work almost too well.

What do APL shoes do?

Athletic Propulsion Labs® has created actual playing shoes designed to make players jump higher during a game – increasing the benefits to a player’s jump shot, rebounding, dunking and shot blocking ability.

In spite of the shoe’s fit and comfort, the back of the shoe rubs against your heel unless you wear very high socks. It is not possible to wear ankle socks comfortably.

The results have shown that training with raised forefoot platforms resulted in significant improvements in both countermovement jump and agility performances. These improvements were higher than those obtained when plyometric training with regular training shoes.

Can you run in APL?

The ride itself is as good as any shoe out there, and definitely the best of any “non-running” brand we’ve tried. It looks good, it feels better, and it performs as a running shoe should. If you are simply looking at buying an APL and wondering if you can actually run it, you most definitely can.

Are APL worth it?

Are APL shoes true to size?

APL does run small overall as a brand, so I suggest going up half a size in their shoes. These are extremely comfortable and light weight.

Do you have to tie APL shoes?

They’re meant to be tied up and then hidden under the top of the shoe at the tongue. I love the minimalist, streamlined look of no shoelaces because the shoes pair just as well with Levi’s or a sporty skirt as they do with workout tights.

What shoes should I do plyometrics in?

You’re not likely to find a training shoe made specifically for plyometrics, but you can take your pick of the numerous athletic shoes available. Tennis and running shoes have the cushioning and arch support you need, and most of them come up higher than a street shoe to cradle your ankle and help with stability.
