Athletic Propulsion Lab Concept 1 Banned By The NBA

On October 18, 1985 the NBA banned Michael Jordan's first signature shoe the Air Jordan 1. Almost 25 years to the day NBA commissioner David Stern has banned another athletic shoe from NBA courts.

The shoe in question is the Concept 1 from Athletic Propulsion Lab's. The sneaker features a spring-based system that is designed to increase vertical lift. The NBA released a statement about the shoe citing an unfair advantage to players who wear the shoe:

"Under league rules, players may not wear any shoe during a game that creates an undue competitive advantage.”

With a rumored $300 price tag it's hard to determine whether or not history will repeat itself by creating a legendary shoe line that sets the bar for athletic footwear the way the Air Jordan Brand has.
