Last October, upstart sneaker company Athletic Propulsion Labs changed the game with the introduction of the Concept 1, a model that was banned by the NBA due to providing what they call an "unfair competitive" advantage. Utilizing the brand's Load 'N Launch device and a spring-based propulsion system, the Concept 1 promised to deliver a 3.5 inch increase to the wearer's vertical. Since then, APL has launched a second model called the Concours, but it appears that a follow-up to their flagship shoe may be on the way.
Adam Goldston, who co-founded APL with his twin brother Ryan in 2009, sent out a message on Twitter earlier tonight letting his followers know that he was hooping in the APL Concept 2. As of now, no images or information on the shoe is available, but it's possible we'll see something soon if the shoe is already being tested on the court.
What would you like to see in the Concept 2? Should the brand maintain their identity and employ Load 'N Launch once again? Would you like to see them make an NBA-friendly shoe that could help them gain exposure in the league? Let us know in the comment section below and stick with Sole Collector for APL Concept 2 updates.
