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.
