Goop recently showcased some favorite athletic sneaker brands, and I wanted to second one of their choices. I caught a glimpse of APLs while window shopping on the Upper East Side about six months ago. They were displayed inside a semi-fancy shoe boutique alongside the likes of Casadei and Loeffler Randall, so not your average Foot Locker.
I tried on a pair of the Techloom Phantoms in black and fell in love. Goop is not lying when they say they feel weightless. They’re truly the lightest sneakers I’ve ever worn, due in most part to their knit body. I don’t actually wear them to work out, so I can’t speak to their performance benefits. What I do know is they may me look cooler when running errands on the weekend, and I need all the help I can get on a Sunday morning.
