Owning These NBA Banned Shoes May be the Closest Thing to Flying You Ever Experience
I always dreamed growing up that I could jump or fly like Superman or at the very least like Michael Jordan. Needless to say, I can't even touch the rim of a basketball hoop. In full disclosure, the net is a challenge at times for me. But no longer, baby!
The new Athletic Propulsion Labs Concept 1 Shoes ($300). Dreamed up by a pair of former USC basketball players and banned by the NBA, the Concept 1's feature a unique Load 'N Launch spring-based propulsion system in the forefoot that makes you jump up to 3.5-inches higher instantly, or more than enough boost to shoot overtop of the chumps at your weekly pickup game.
With its unique construction, the Concept 1 basketball shoe fits completely true-to-size and provides the secure feeling of a shoe that is designed to perform at the highest level of competition. The upper materials are a combination of the finest carbon fiber look synthetics, microfiber mesh and special anti-microbial linings to keep the foot comfortable and performing at the highest level throughout extended periods of play.
