Jump higher. Run faster. Those were the promises that shoes made to us when we were kids. Our peers on the playground would point to their new shoes and explain, “See that bubble right there in the heel? That’s why I made that shot.” As we grew older we grew wiser. All of that was just marketing. Now, however, claiming your shoes make you jump higher is no longer pure hyperbole. Introducing the new APL Boomer Black Basketball Shoes.

Yes. We aren’t lying. These shoes will literally make you jump higher. If they didn’t, the NBA wouldn’t have banned players from wearing the shoes on court. Like most all other shoes from the young company, the new Boomer silhouette features the ‘Load’n Launch’ technology that made the brand so infamous. But it isn’t all in the jump. The shoe boasts a super comfortable neoprene bootie that wraps around the wearers foot for all around support and comfort. For additional stability when you’re crossing up scrubs on the court, the sneakers feature a TPU support cage that keeps your feet supported and secure through quick bursts and short cuts. To keep cool point after point, the upper has been made from a breathable open mesh that help wick sweat. Oh yeah, and did we mention that they look awesome? Prices start at $195. [Purchase]
