LaMelo Ball’s Signature Shoe, The PUMA MB.01, Releases Soon

The wait is finally over. Coming off his impressive rookie year with his eyes set for more, LaMelo Ball and PUMA officially unveil the guard’s signature shoe — the PUMA MB.01.

The MB.01 marks PUMA Hoops’ first signature shoe release since re-launching its basketball category in 2018. The MB.01 joins PUMA’s iconic basketball signature shoes named after basketball legends Walt “Clyde” Frazier and Ralph Sampson. LaMelo now looks to follow in the steps of the greatest ever.

Designed in cooperation with LaMelo, the MB.01 embodies his style throughout the shoe, from bold color choices to intricate details, including an artistic outline of flames shooting down from the ankle collar that lines up to LaMelo’s famed rocket ankle tattoo. The shoe’s tongue includes LaMelo’s “Not from Here” creative, and the outsole showcases the word “rare,” which describes his talent on the hardwood. 

“PUMA makes me feel like I am truly part of the fam, incorporating my fresh ideas when it comes to style,” Ball said. “I enjoyed being a part of the MB.01 design process, sharing input from bright color choices to the addition of personal details like the rocket flames that match my ankle tattoo. I joined PUMA because they let me be me. I wanted to work with a brand that allowed me to be authentic, incorporating my ideas while also giving me the opportunity to show off my personal style.”

The all-new PUMA MB.01 releases on December 16 for $125 on PUMA.com, at the PUMA NYC Flagship Store, Foot Locker, Foot Locker Canada, Kids Foot Locker, Champs Sports, Eastbay, and Footaction. As always, our sneaker monitors and release day strategy will have members ready for drop day.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
