APL Shoe Review: Athletic Propulsion Labs Phantom Leopard Running Shoe

September 22, 2018

My Athletic Propulsion Labs Phantom Leopard Sneakers finally arrived and I am absolutely infatuated with them. I was a little scared that they would be crazy, and I was right they are really wild in person, but in such a good way. I wanted to try out the leopard print trend that’s everywhere now and this is exactly the type of item that fits my style and life. This way I am wearing the print, it’s not wearing me.  They add the perfect statement to a neutral outfit, and they pair beautifully with vivid color outfits like this outfit with my sonic yellow swiftly tech LS, and my black In Movement Crops.  

I ordered my regular sneaker size which is a size 9 and the fit is spot on. I haven’t worked out in them yet but I wanted to post these quickly for you as they are limited edition and they are selling out very fast. They are nice and flat so I think they will work really well in place of my Nike metcons for workouts that are varied, and when I  need a flatter shoe for deep squats and lifts. These will not mess with my knee tracking in deep squats and will allow me to have a good ankle mobility. I will do an updated review post on these once I have a few different types of workouts in them as soon as possible. Even if these sell out, I think it’s helpful to have a review of the phantom style sneaker since I know a lot of you have been wondering about them.  

Originally these leopard sneakers came out in April and I wasn’t fast enough to order them but APL decided to re-release them this month exclusively on their site, and I jumped at them. 

What do you guys think? Do you love them?

The construction of this sneaker is really different with an attached inner sock that forms the tongue. The inside sock is a stretchy neoprene fabric so when you put these sneakers on, you have to pull them on like socks, not slip your feet in by pushing the tongue out of the way.

    Strangely enough, I do like them. I’m not an animal print kind of girl, but this print is fun on a shoe.

    I despise them on their own ( but in all fairness i despise leopard print period) however I love them on your feet in these photos and especially with what you have on! You make them look fun and classy ( whereas I usually find leopard print cheesy)

    I have never been a leopard print person, but if you love them, that’s all that matters!
