The Future of the Basketball Shoe is Here


Basketball. Whether you are an avid fan or an occasional player, you know what it is like to play in less than desirable conditions, whether it be the lighting or the gear you use to play in. Sometimes, issues like these are solved with one quick fix, your footwear. Athletic Propulsion Labs (APL) are making groundbreaking changes in athletic wear, focusing to help not only visibility for all you night time players, but to increase your level of play with the simple design of the shoe.

Night Vision is the newest and one of the most advanced pairs of basketball shoes currently on the market. The silver on silver design causes the entire shoe to light up and reflect as much as possible, causing everyone watching the game to instantly keep their main focus on you. But nothing is just about looks, and boy do these shoes have substance.


APL has discovered what is called Load ‘N Launch® technology, which increases the vertical jump of any one wearing these shoes, seasoned athlete or not. The FloZone upper part of the shoe has a spacious toe box so your feet will never feel cramped. Don’t worry about having your feet slide around in the shoes either; these bad boys are equipped with woven overlays to support the midfoot and a heel counter that locks your heels right in place.

Enough about me telling you how absolutely incredible these shoes are, try them out for yourself. At $150, you’ll wonder how you ever played basketball without them. Head on over to the APL’s website where all men’s sizes are available for purchase.
