Don't buy these
Super disappointing. I cannot even get my heel into the shoe. It's not the length that is an issue. It's the plastic band at the heel counter that allows for no flexibility to put the shoe on or off. It's completely defective.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Comfy once you get them on
These shoes are suuuuuuuper comfy...if you can get them on. I have high arches, and the design of this shoe doesn't give you a lot of wiggle room at the opening to pull them on. I ended up returning them because I didn't feel like fighting with my shoes when I'm trying to wear them for an easy going day.

APL Ascend sneakers
I received these as a gift, otherwise would not have spent $200 on sneakers. Chose them for their look, primarily, as a casual sneaker for day to day use. I already run in Nikes as I have for 25 years. These are cute, but very stiff. Admittedly worn only a handful of times, but they are still hard to get on and off. They feel small in the toe box, and I have very average (on the narrow side) feet. The cushioning is average. Overall, I would seriously evaluate Nikes or Adidas as a much better buy, many styles are similar in "cuteness" factor, softer uppers, greater comfort and superior cushioning. I would not buy these again, especially at such an inflated price.

Needs SERIOUS Work
I am a sneaker head and, with other brands, I've never experienced anything like the following. What I didn't anticipate was how constricted the back of the sneaker would be. After a day's wear, the back of my ankles are rubbed raw from constant friction. Moreover, there isn't the type of support you'd find with New Balance, Nike, or even Puma. Your arches will not like you after a while. This is my first pair of APL's. And it will likely be my last, for a while. I wanted to like this one. I wanted to like APL. They've come out with a range of great patterns! Unfortunately, these wore like a beta model that the APL research and development team is testing out. Save your ankles and your arches. Don't be swayed by the patterns!

They look good but hurt my feet!
I wanted to love these shoes but after walking in them for about 15 minutes the backs of my ankles had blisters. I thought maybe they were too tight but even when I loosened the laces there was something in the back rubbing my ankles even with socks on. I can't even imagine working out in these shoes and wish I could return them but I wore them outside

Terrible Quality
These joggers look cute and stylish but the quality is very poor, especially at $175. There were several loose seams with holes starting to form. The pants started to lose shape and stretch out, especially in the knees after a few hours of normal wear (I purchased these for style, not for working out). The internal drawstring is pretty useless. I contacted APL: Athletic Propulsion Labs customer service directly to see if I got a defective pair but they couldn't even be bothered to respond. That's what propelled me to write this review. Thankfully, Shopbop customer service came through and I was able to send them back. I will never recommend or purchase this brand again.

Super cute sneakers
I really like the appearance and fit of these shoes. I doubt I'll be working out in these, but as a "sporty lux" look, these fit the brief perfectly. Very comfortable and true to US sizing.

So comfortable!
I got these because I wanted a sneaker that was both casual and athletic -I can wear it with leggings/jeans/a dress. I have a lot of alignment issues and previous injury with my knees/hips/ankles so I am VERY picky with shoes. These are SO COMFORTABLE. The laces are weird at first but the shoes have the perfect amount of cushioning. I want to wear them all the time everywhere. Plus they're super cool looking!

Perfectly pretty and comfy
Sizing: I usually wear 35/35.5/36 in heels, and have these sneakers in size 5.5 and 6. Size 6 is a tad bit loose for me, but overall the sizing runs pretty much true to size. While these sneakers are not as heavily padded as Newtons, they're still good for long runs. The color (Rose Gold) is beautiful in person, it's a dusty pink shade, with metallic threads, and the profile is low and sleek, not in the least bit bulky. It's a very fashiony type of sneaker.

Not cute for petite women
I loved the way these looked online but I am 5'3 (athleticish build) with smaller ankles/shorter legs and these looked absurd on me. They are very bulky and more of a men's shoe. My boyfriend said I looked like I was wearing my dad's shoes. These would be very cute on someone who is model height or has bigger legs maybe. In terms of the actual sizing, someone else's review said to order half a size down so I ordered a 7.5 (I'm usually an 8) and I would have needed an 8 because the 7.5 were too short. So I'd say these are true to size. They're just very bulky and wide. I wish they made these more for women specifically instead of unisex. They were super comfy on the feet though, they just looked like boy's shoes.

great color
The color is a soft lemon and very pretty. They are comfortable but I find APL to run a 1/2 size smaller than Nike.

Fun sneakers
This is my favorite sneaker brand. You can actually feel a spring in your step and an improved running time. There is literally no break in period for these- you can run in them long distance on day 1 and not have blisters. The pink is a fun pop of color for warmer months. Love these!
