McLaren Automotive partnered with Athletic Propulsion Labs, the high-performance athletic footwear brand, to create a new range of luxury footwear.
Inspired by McLaren’s iconic supercars and hypercars, the first offering from the collaboration is the limited-edition APL | McLaren HySpeed™, an all-purpose performance running trainer. The shoes are launching in five bespoke colorways, directly influenced by McLaren’s supercars. The APL | McLaren HySpeed™ features a three-piece segmented midsole with APL FutureFoam pods in the front and rear that are joined by a full-length lightweight carbon fiber plate topped by an all-new nitrogen infused midsole compound that is engineered for supreme responsiveness and energy-rich compression. The shoe has a microfibre heel with extended wings and an internal advanced fitment system with three-piece cushion heel padding and APL’s signature Souffle Sockliner. The outsole features a tread pattern inspired by performance tires that are designed for speed and grip.
The APL | McLaren collaboration comes in White/McLaren Orange, White/Black/Ombre, Rose Dust/Creme, Energy/Metallic Silver, and McLaren Orange is available for men and women and retails for $450 USD.
The McLaren x Athletic Propulsion Labs will feature a specially designed box that has almost as many features as the shoes themselves. The drawer-style box features the outer sleeve that features a combination of gloss McLaren Orange, metallic orange foil, and black foil logos.
Inside the drawer, there is a black inner box and transparent smoked black shoe cover that displays the technical blueprint drawing of the shoe tooling. Pulling the drawer out all the way reveals a line drawing of the McLaren F1 road car, one of the most iconic and desirable supercars ever made.
The collection will be available to purchase online at www.AthleticPropulsionLabs.com, APL’s Flagship Store Experience at The Grove in Los Angeles, and select retailers globally starting today.
