APL launches light, sustainable running shoe

As the sports and outdoor industry continues to grow, leading brands are extending their use of wool from activewear into footwear. However, the success of wool in footwear lies not only in the fibre’s natural properties, but also in its ability to be constructed in a way that aids performance.

Athletic Propulsion Labs® (APL) has unveiled its most sustainable and lightest running shoe to date, partnering with The Woolmark Company to launch the APL TechLoom Breeze Merino Wool collection. Each shoe features 80% Australian Merino wool, innovatively knitted with APL’s patented, stretch-rebound TechLoom upper. This unique combination delivers greater elasticity, strengthens the shoe and allows it to naturally hug the foot for maximum support, especially during performance and sports lifestyle activities.

The shoe is available in both men’s and women’s sizes in Blush, Fatigue/White, Merino Grey/White, Navy/Parchment/White, Raindrop/White and is available to purchase online and from leading stockists worldwide, including Mr Porter, Harvey Nichols, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Shop Bop.
