Techloom Bliss Running Shoes
I have a varied and extensive list of reasons why I skip the gym. But now, I can’t pull the my-shoes-are-too-uncomfortable card. Or the I-forgot-my-running-shoes, because chances are, I’ll be wearing these to work as well. The TechLoom Bliss is the brand’s latest silhouette. Ringing in at 6.8 oz., this is APL’s lightest running shoe ever. Two years in the making, it has an easy-slip on design and custom milled satin elastic strap that allow for quick ingress and egress providing über comfort and a seamless fit. So don’t be surprised if I make it to the gym this week.
About the brand:
Athletic Propulsion Labs (APL) was founded in March 2009, by then 23 year-old identical twins Adam and Ryan Goldston. As former two sport collegiate athletes, playing both basketball and football at the University of Southern California, Adam and Ryan envisioned creating a company providing revolutionary products symbolizing the ultimate intersection of design and performance.
About the designers:
Today, Adam and Ryan Goldston are recognized as accomplished inventors with numerous U.S. and foreign patents including U.S. utility patents 8,112,905, 8,347,526, 8,495,825, 8,621,766 and 8,732,983 where they are named inventors for the company’s revolutionary Load ‘N Launch® Technology. With the launch of their inaugural shoe in June 2010, the Concept 1 basketball shoe, they became the creators of the first shoe proven to instantly make you jump higher due to APL’s revolutionary 8-spring Load ‘N Launch Technology in the forefoot. As a result, the Concept 1 became the first shoe banned in the NBA’s 64-year history for performance reasons for “providing an undue competitive advantage.”
