Aquatic accents make for a fitting tribute.

LaMelo Ball Heads To South Beach With The PUMA MB.03 “Miami”

With a new head coach and president of basketball operations, the Charlotte Hornets are set to usher in a new chapter when the 2024-25 season tips off. Much of their hopes rest the health of young star LaMelo Ball, who despite some unfortunate sideline stretches, remains a bright spot in NC. However, the focus for the latest LaMelo Ball shoes, his PUMA MB.03, is anywhere but. For its next edition, the eccentric silhouette is bringing its talents to South Beach.

The Miami Vice hues of bright pink and turquoise certainly allude to the 305, but with Ball lacking any real ties to the area, this shoe simply utilizes an established complementary colorway. Those vibrant shades manifest throughout the profile, but most eye-catchingly with some marbled interplay underpinning the upper.

Even if Melo isn’t Miami-born, the palette on display here plays into the strengths of the model, typically relying on these sorts of multi-color, playful looks. In fact, this can be understood as a GR inversion of one of the standout colorways in the shoes history, flipping and slightly tinting the Kid Super PUMA MB.03 (which remains available in select sizes.)

The PUMA MB.03 “Miami” is slated to launch on July 5th, retailing for its typical $125. Keep this article handy for direct links on drop day, and get an advance look via the gallery of official images just below.
