Here’s a chance to buy a pair of McLarens for under $500. But instead of four wheels, these McLarens ride on a three-piece segmented midsole.
The supercar maker has partnered with APL, a high-performance athletic footwear brand, to create a line of shoes called HySpeed. The companies say they used McLaren’s design language and lightweighting techniques in combination with APL’s footwear technology.
The shoes, which sell for $450 and are offered in five color schemes, have microfiber heels and a carbon-fiber plate topped by a nitrogen-infused midsole compound. The outsole has a tread pattern inspired by performance tires.
