Following the success of their NBA-banned flagship Concept 1, the people over at Athletic Propulsion Labs are officially ready to introduce the highly-anticipated follow-up. Earlier today, the brand teased fans with a sneak preview of the Concept 2, giving us a clear look at the new outsole design. The photo showcases APL's trademark Load 'N Launch system in bright green, visible through a herringbone-heavy yellow rubber outsole. We also see a green shank plate leading up to what may be a black-based style.

The wait for the Concept 2 won't be much longer. You can ring in the new year by picking up a pair when they release next Tuesday, January 3, 2012. More details from APL are forthcoming, so stick with Sole Collector for updates.
