PUMA officially unveiled NBA superstar and Rookie of the Year LaMelo Ball’s first signature sneaker, the MB.01.
The MB.01 marks PUMA Hoops’ first signature shoe release since re-launching its basketball category in 2018. MB.01 joins the lineup of PUMA’s iconic basketball signature shoes named after basketball legends Walt “Clyde” Frazier and Ralph Sampson.
MB.01 was co-designed by LaMelo, incorporating his personal style throughout the shoe from bold color choices to intricate unique details, including an artistic outline of flames shooting down from the ankle collar that lines up to Melo’s famed rocket ankle tattoo. The tongue of the shoe includes LaMelo’s “Not from Here” creative and the outsole showcases the word “rare,” which describes his talent on the hardwood.
