APL Sneakers Are Expensive — but Target Knocked Them Off For Way Less

C9 Champion Focus ($37)

We came across these C9 Champion training sneakers at Target and did a double take — those look familiar!

If you’re thinking the same thing, it’s because they’re strikingly similar to APL’s popular TechLoom Pro; it’s essentially a direct knockoff, for less than one quarter of the price. C9 Champion’s Focus sneaker comes in at $37 (with a sale style in blue at $18), compared to the $160 price tag at APL.

APL TechLoom Pro ($160)

While we cant vouch for comfort or quality (we’ve only tried the APL style), if you’re looking for an everyday streetwear style, these will do the trick . . . and save you a whole lot of cash.
