For the first time, luxury supercar maker McLaren Automotive is collaborating with APL to unveil an entirely new silhouette.
With the perfect blend of design and performance to take on any road or circuit, McLaren Automotive implements the same forward-thinking into its line of luxury lifestyle products. Surrounding itself with other industry leaders, McLaren collaborates with other brand professionals to help diversify its portfolio outside of supercar manufacturing and Formula 1. The team at McLaren Automotive is proud to take its next venture with the footwear specialists at Athletic Propulsion Labs, featuring a limited-edition sneaker collection that boasts vibrant colors and leading technology. Inspired by the vehicles that make up McLaren’s fleet, the McLaren HySpeed is designed as an all-purpose performance sneaker that marks the supercar manufacturer’s first footwear collaboration.
The all-new HySpeed presents a low-cut silhouette that highlights APL’s patented Load ’N Launch technology, adopting aspects from the McLaren Speedtail’s lightweight construction. The APL x McLaren HySpeed features a three-piece segmented midsole with APL FutureFoam pods in the front and rear, connected by a full-length lightweight carbon fiber plate. An all-new nitrogen-infused midsole compound is engineered for supreme responsiveness and energy-rich compression. The shoe also includes a microfiber heel with extended wings and an 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 tires that are designed for speed and grip. The APL x 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 for $450.
