McLaren Automotive, the luxury supercar maker, and APL, the high-performance athletic footwear brand, have joined forces to create a new range of luxury footwear that further progresses design, performance, technology, and construction. Inspired by McLaren’s iconic supercars and hypercars, the first offering from the collaboration is the limited-edition APL | McLaren HySpeed™, a breathtaking new silhouette designed as an all-purpose performance running trainer which marks the luxury supercar maker’s first footwear collaboration.
Born from innovation and rooted in technology, the history of these two iconic companies have followed a similar path that brings them together to form a new future. Whether it be on the court, the road or the track, APL and McLaren have always driven to push performance to new levels. From APL’s patented Load ‘N Launch® technology designed to instantly increase vertical leap, to McLaren’s hyper luxury Speedtail and emphasis on reducing vehicle weight to maximise efficiency and experience, the desire to push the limits is at the heart of each company.
Combining the pursuit of performance and luxurious materials with world-class craftsmanship, state of the art manufacturing techniques and bold aesthetics, APL and McLaren represent the pinnacle of luxury and performance. With such close parallels, the collaboration was naturally guided by McLaren’s design pillars to create a truly unique footwear collection. This has resulted in the development of a new range of footwear that progresses design, performance, technology, and construction in the luxury footwear category.
This one-of-a-kind footwear from the APL | McLaren collaboration has resulted in an entirely new silhouette being developed, the APL | McLaren HySpeed™, which is designed as an all-purpose performance running trainer launching in five bespoke colourways, 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 connected by a full-length lightweight carbon fibre plate topped by an all-new nitrogen infused midsole compound that is engineered for supreme responsiveness and energy rich compression.
Additionally, 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 also references design details of McLaren’s supercars, featuring a tread pattern inspired by performance tyres 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 APL | McLaren HySpeed™ will feature a specially designed box that has almost as many features as the shoes themselves. 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 from 2 August 2022.
