A new pair of shoes called “Concept 1′s” from a company called Athletic Propulsion Labs has been banned by the NBA.
These shoes cost $300 a pair and claim to increase your vertical jump by 3.5 inches or more, just by wearing them.
It’s supposed to make you jump higher by using a technology called “Load ‘N Launch”, a spring-like device installed on the soles of the shoes.
Now, this sounds fishy to me, so I did some digging, and found a cool video that puts the Concept 1′s to the test using real athletes…

Do you think these bad boys work or not?
By the way, APL was founded by 23 year old twins Ryan and Adam Goldston.
What’s funny is that their dad, Mark Goldston, was creator of similar technologies like Reebok Pump, LA Gear lights technology, and Reebok’s Hexalite.
