Ascend Sneakers



Size Chart


Inspired by the shape of a feather and designed to keep feet naturally positioned, these high-tech sneakers—in breathable, lightweight honeycomb mesh fabric, with a built-in shock-absorbing Propelium® compression midsole—give you serious performance in a sleek black-and-white profile. (Fun fact: An APL shoe was banned by the NBA for providing wearers with too much "competitive advantage".)

  • Upper: Nylon mesh, TPU; Lining: Polyester; Sole: Rubber
  • Runs wide. For narrow feet, take a 1/2 size down for a snugger fit. 

About the brand

Ryan and Adam Goldston are identical twin brothers who are both former USC athletes, so in some ways it’s no surprise that Athletic Propulsion Labs, the shoe company they started out of their dorm room, has such a strong focus on performance. They own plenty of ground-breaking patents, and are actually proud of the fact that their basketball shoes are the first ever to be banned from NBA play for providing an unfair competitive advantage.
