LaMelo Ball, the Charlotte Hornets’ standout, is no stranger to blending sports and pop culture. After successfully collaborating with the animated series “Rick & Morty,” Ball will launch a vibrant new partnership with another beloved cartoon, “Dexter’s Laboratory,” through his PUMA MB.03 line.

This collaboration is a colorful homage to the genius of the small-screen lab, featuring a design that’s as bold and inventive as Dexter’s own creations. The sneaker itself is a palette of bright, eye-catching colors adorned with abstract patterns that evoke the chaotic energy of Dexter’s secret lab. The upper is a kaleidoscope of multicolored swirls, while the tongue, heel, and liner are contrasted with a more subdued black and white. It’s a design that stands out, much like the cartoon’s unique aesthetic. The sneaker also pays direct tribute to the show with Dexter and Dee Dee character shoutouts inside the shoe, and the “M.E.L.O.” branding on the heel matching the “Dexter’s Laboratory” text, making it a must-have for fans and sneakerheads alike.


The Dexter’s Laboratory x PUMA MB.03 is set to drop on December 22nd, 2023, at select retailers and on PUMA’s official website for $125. Mark your calendars for this end-of-year release that promises to bring a piece of Dexter’s world to your wardrobe.
