LaMelo Ball and PUMA appear to be hard at work on the NBA star’s third signature shoe, the PUMA MB.03 with first-look images arriving of the totally revamped model. 

In a market full of signature shoes from the biggest names in basketball, PUMA and LaMelo Ball remain on top. While having the youth lined up for releases and colorways you’d never imagine seeing on other models, the duo has created something very special, and going into the new season, they will call upon the third series to carry the momentum.

While full details on the model have yet to be revealed, at first glance it appears the duo will be taking a new approach to the model this go around, replacing the monomesh upper with a TPU overlay system which also includes a transparent toe overlay system which has evolved around Melo’s game and the need for more reinforcement. A scratched aesthetic appears to be included throughout the upper “RARE” is included on the tongues. The signature phoenix logo will be placed on the lace shroud while “Not From Here” will also be included.

While this design dubbed, “La France” features an all-over Victorian print graphic, other releases expected to highlight the debut of the model are different offerings dubbed, “Toxic,” “Hills,” “Blue Hive,” and even another collaboration with a hit-animation series Dexter’s Laboratory will be included int he lineup.


The new model from LaMelo and PUMA will be debuting in September of this year via select PUMA retailers and PUMA.com. A retail price for the new model has yet to be revealed.
