There’s really nothing more you could ask of an athlete in the first year of a signature shoe. After signing with PUMA in November 2020, the brand quickly got to work, delivering the MB.01 signature shoe at the start of LaMelo’s second season in the league – and the timing couldn’t have been better. The Hornets guard rose to All-Star ranks while guiding his Charlotte team to the play-in tournament, and throughout the campaign the MB.01 sold out in every colorway. LaMelo has provided some much-needed youth and flash to the otherwise outdated signature shoe market, and ahead of the long-awaited MB.02 sequel (which will likely be available in September or October), PUMA is releasing a summer banger. .
On June 16, LaMelo Ball and PUMA will release the MB.01 Low, a bass version of the Mid. Containing all the familiar elements that truly make the silhouette unique and ‘rare’, the MB.01 Low lowers the sockliner height slightly for that perfect summer strapping option. The “UFO” colourway draws a silver hue reminiscent of otherworldly spaceships, while the hit of blue on the outsole and interior adds a refreshing contrast.
Again, the latest LaMelo Ball shoes are set to drop on June 16 for $120 at PUMA, Foot Locker, and Champs.
