Puma has released photos and details on the first-ever LaMelo Ball signature shoe. The bright red colorway sneaker called the MB.01 is set be released on December 16, 2021 retailing at $125, according to Puma.
The signature shoe is also the first for Puma since relaunching their basketball line in 2018. Co-designed by LaMelo Ball, the fashionable performance basketball kicks feature Melo’s signature MB.01 logo and “1 of 1” on the tongue, while the sole reveals the word “rare,” along with another Ball catchphrase, “Not from here,” spread across the lower tongue of the sneaker.
“I am excited to officially launch my first signature basketball shoe with Puma. Puma was great to work with during the design process. After signing with the brand last October, we got to work on MB.01,” Ball told Sports Illustrated. “I love wearing bright colors, so I knew early on that the MB.01 had to have some show-stopping colors and a cool design. I wanted to work with Puma to create a basketball sneaker that’s different, and incorporated elements from my personal style. I wanted a shoe that represents me but also is something that everyone wants to wear not only on court but off court, too. I think Puma really captured my vision. I love the way MB.01 turned out.”
Following Ball’s Rookie of the Year campaign, the shoes will surely be in high demand with a strategic release in December. Check out more photos of the MB.01 LaMelo Ball signature sneaker set to be released on December 16, 2021 at 10 a.m. EST.
