LaMelo Ball’s PUMA MB.02 Releases On October 21st

LaMelo Ball will likely miss the start of the 2022-23 NBA season due to an ankle injury, but that will not prevent the Charlotte Hornets player from releasing his second trademark shoe outside of the Big Baller Brand: the PUMA MB.02.

As a follow-up to what is largely regarded as the greatest first signature model in recent memory, Ball and PUMA’s second offering has not altered much cosmetically. The designed woven mesh upper preserves the same lightweight and breathable sensation popularized on the MB.01, with fuse overlays spanning the length of the profiles to not only provide durability but also pay homage to LaMelo Ball’s tattooed wings. Underfoot, the German sportswear brand employs its tried-and-true NITRO foam, which is paired with a full-coverage engineered, non-slip rubber compound ideal for the type of play the youngest Ball Brother has made a name for himself with; the tread features a feather pattern to further reference LaMelo’s tattoos without sacrificing durability or traction.

LaMelo Ball said in an official press release, “Working with PUMA to build the second generation of my trademark sneaker is something I am immensely pleased of.” “When designing the MB.02, we pushed the designs to the next level by adding flames, RARE and 1 of 1 motifs, and aggressive colors to suit my particular style. With the release of MB.02, I’m delighted to see fans enjoy the MB series in a fresh manner.”

In anticipation of its release on Friday, October 21st through puma.com, the PUMA mobile app, the PUMA NYC Flagship store, and the Foot Locker family of shops, please enjoy the official marketing photography of the pair below.

For other basketball shoes, consider the Nike LeBron 20.
