After living up to the hype and winning the 2021 Rookie of the Year award, LaMelo Ball finally saw his signature shoe unveiled with the Puma MB.01.
LaMelo was very involved in the process of designing his signature shoe, with a lot of the designs on the upper coming to life via 3D printing on top of the breathable Monomesh. Puma’s Nitro Foam is used in the midsole for responsiveness and comfort. The unique traction pattern is made of non-slip a rubber compound that should enhance traction on-court.
The color pictured is the first to release, with the all-red “Not From Here” colorway also being one first LaMelo wore on court.
