LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets won’t live another day this season as they were eliminated in the Play-In Tournament, but the reigning Rookie of the Year has something to be proud of in his sophomore season. His incredible numbers and near-night highlights earned him an All-Star selection, while the launch of his signature shoes, the Puma MB.01, breathed new life into the world of iconic basketball shoes.
Continuing a string of sold-out releases, an energetic new “Galaxy” colorway reflects LaMelo’s otherworldly vision of being “not from here.” Electro blue and gecko green combine with a vivid crimson red and a patterned upper and interior that reveal an intergalactic exterior landscape, quickly reminding sneakerheads of Nike’s “Galaxy” collection from a decade ago.
Adult and children’s sizes are set to release on April 29 on Puma and Foot Locker. Additionally, a Puma Suede and RS-X lifestyle shoe will be part of this Galaxy capsule, as will a full assortment of activewear including hoodies, t-shirts and sweatshirts.
