Updated February 13th, 2024: The Puma x LaMelo Ball x Porsche collaboration will launch on February 17th and feature two shoes: the MB.03 and All-Pro NITRO.
Puma has been pulling out all the stops to ensure the success of LaMelo Ball’s signature line, having debuted a variety of limited release, holiday, and collaborative efforts.
Now, Puma and co. join forces with German auto company Porsche to present a distinctive take on the MB.03, the latest LaMelo Ball shoe to date. The partnership comes as a natural fit given previous Puma/Porsche collabs as well as LaMelo’s infatuation with sports cars, evident through viral videos of him exiting games in an array of different eye-catching drives.
The new MB.03 sports a black and yellow color scheme, with co-branded Puma/Porsche detailing making its way onto the tongue and heel. As far as materials go, the upper wears a mix of canvas and suede, a slight departure from the typical TPU accents we’re accustomed to seeing on this silhouette.
A release is anticipated in the coming weeks, hinting that these may have been intended as an All-Star pair, but it remains unknown whether or not LaMelo will make the cut. In the meantime, enjoy official images below.
