This PUMA MB.02 Features Jade Stone Finishes

The “Year of the Rabbit” is nearly upon us, and everyone from luxury houses to sneaker brands are coming together in celebration. Even PUMA and LaMelo Ball are commemorating the Lunar New Year, dressing up the MB.02 in a luxurious, jade-inspired colorway.

Drastically different from Nike’s commemorative offerings, the PUMA MB.02 “Jade” makes no overt nods to this upcoming year’s zodiac animal. Instead, the colorway looks to the titular stone, visually paying homage to its roots in Asian culture by way of a direct, instantly readable color story. Both the finish and color of jade is embodied throughout the entire shoe, emulated across near every fixture. Some details, though, instead opt for a gilded tone, an equally auspicious and fitting choice for the Lunar New Year.

Enjoy a close-up look at the PUMA MB.02 “Jade” right here. While a firm release date has not yet been revealed by the brand, some retailers in the EU are reporting a January 13th launch. For now, sit tight as we await more information and further word from additional storefronts.

On the subject of Lunar New Year, a fourth Nike Dunk Low Year of the Rabbit was recently revealed.


UPDATE (01/23/2023):
A release date has been scheduled for February 3rd, 2023.
