When it comes to finding the perfect pair of athletic shoes, there are a few key factors to keep in mind. Will they perform during your workout of choice? Are they comfortable? Are they stylish? And are they celebrity-approved?
Athletic Propulsion Labs (otherwise known as APL) is a sneaker brand that meets all of these requirements. The sneakers skyrocketed to notoriety in recent years after celebrities including Khloe Kardashian, Jennifer Garner, Sophie Turner, and more A-listers were spotted in the chic shoes. Oh, and as if these celebs weren’t enough to convince you of the brand’s merits, Oprah even included a pair of APLs in her 2018 Favorite Things List.
Needless the say, with fans like these, the shoes certainly must be worth the investment. With prices starting at $100 for a pair of slide sandals and going up to $250 for a pair of Chelsea sneaker boots, the footwear isn’t exactly cheap, but it does offer unique comfort technology and a sleek look that stars can’t seem to get enough of.
Founded by former collegiate athletes, APL shoes were created with design and performance in mind. The running shoe soles feature a special cushioned material for optimal shock absorption, while the signature Techloom woven material offers a seamless, comfortable fit — whether you’re walking around town or hitting the gym.
The best part? You can snag a pair of the celebrity-approved shoes from Shopbop’s Amazon storefront. All of the brand’s chic sneakers, slides, and boots are available to add directly to your cart, so there’s no excuse not to stock up on the stylish athletic shoes.
