APL’s Limited Edition DNA-Pattern Concept 2 (KICKS)

In Helix Blue/White/Carolina, retailing at $175.

The latest from Athletic Propulsion Labs is hitting the hardwood—today, APL released a limited edition colorway of the Concept 2 shoe. The updated kicks feature a unique DNA-patterned upper material in a Helix Blue/White/Carolina colorway. According to APL, “the shoe’s distinctive upper material resembles a genetic code which changes depending on how the light strikes it.” The APL Concept 2 is available for $175 exclusively at AthleticPropulsionLabs.com and includes Helix Blue and Carolina Blue laces, plus a free gym bag with purchase while supplies last, through September 15.

    these shoes make you jump higher? doubtful in my opinion, i guess i have to spend 300 beans to know if its true..but i rather spend 300 on the new Hyperdunk+!!! not a hard choice at all

    they are proven to work. which is why they are illegal in the NBA. And they are $175 not $300

    i have not, but they are the next pair of shoes i get (simply because i want to dunk at some point in my life, and if these work as much as they have for other people, then they will be all i need) – but they have done studies, and 3rd party experiments. They work. The NBA wouldn’t ban them if they didn’t anyway.

    They look pretty sweet actually but I’m just not that kind of guy that will spend that much money for a pair of shoes.

    I am in no way a marketer for APL but last year they were given to me as a gift and I was doubtful of them to say the least. I could do basic dunks without them but after wearing them for a month was when I caught and finished alley oops regularly. No drastic or spectacular change but it added around 4-6 inches to my jump. Just my 2 cents. They help

    this brand is finished. they didnt build on the initial buzz and all the free press the NBA gave them

  • ball dont lie

    Anybody that says these work is a joke. i know a kid that could regularly dunk but was pretty out of shape and was having trouble getting it down again. He got these shoes and tried jumping after he has just barely missed a dunk in some nikes and after putting on the shoes he couldn’t get any higher after numerous attempts. if these really worked don’t you think more people would have them? I would think if people take steroids for a competitive edge they would drop 175-300 to gain a few inches on their vertical, which is a lot and would tremendously help in basketball.
