The NFHS has received several inquiries about a new product on the market called a "Concept 1 Shoe" made by Athletic Propulsion Labs.  A product link is below along with marketing claims made by the company.
 
Based on this information, the product would be prohibited for competition based on NFHS Basketball Rule 3-5-4. 
Please let me know if you have any questions.
 
"Concept 1" Shoe by Athletic Propulsion Labs

http://www.athleticpropulsionlabs.com/load-n-launch-technology.html

"In testing situations, athletes have experienced increases of several inches on their vertical leap wearing Athletic Propulsion Labs™ basketball shoes with the Load ‘N Launch™ technology.  In some cases, athletes who were the proverbial “inches away” from being able to dunk a basketball on the regulation 10-foot basket, were able to dunk the ball when wearing Athletic Propulsion Labs™ shoes.  These are not training shoes.  Athletic Propulsion Labs™ has created actual playing shoes designed to make players jump higher during a game – increasing the benefits to a player’s jump shot, rebounding, dunking and shot blocking ability."
