APL, also recognized as 'Athletic Propulsion Labs,' introduces the new TechLoom Breeze Merino Wool sneakers, promised to be the label's lightest footwear yet. The shoe boasts sustainable elements and is created in collaboration with The Woolmark Company. The main construction fuses 80% of Australian Merino wool with APL's TechLoom knit material over the uppers. The entire piece is knitted into the final form to completely eliminate any waste that is often left by cut-and-sew methods.

Additionally, the shoe's wool construction delivers natural breathability and it boasts an internal 'speed lacing system' to hold the foot in place. The entire model is rounded out with the label's 'Propelium technology' to deliver bounce and comfort at the soles. The TechLoom Breeze Merino Wool sneakers are now available for purchase online at APL.
