There’s no doubt, the Puma MB.01 is the hottest performance basketball sneaker on the market right now and thanks to a new Queen City colorway LaMelo debuted this All-Star Weekend, that success will only continue.
PUMA and LaMelo both took a chance on each other and the decision to collaborate for a signature series has only paid off for both parties. Now with a couple of colorways released, the hype continues to surge with the anticipation of new colorways and collaborations, it looks like LaMelo and PUMA are only on the brink of their success. While the NBA star was selected to participate in this year’s All-Star weekend festivities, he decided to make a calculated move and show off a sick new variation of his signature shoe on the court which stole all the limelight yesterday.
Featuring a Hornets-inspired colorway, the sneaker arrives in a full purple design that features two different shades across the upper while being accented by Hornets’ teal detailing on the LaMelo signature logo across the tongues as well as detailing on the toe. To complete the design and solidify the renditions as one you can’t miss a purple midsole is placed underneath which features pearled aesthetics.
