LaMelo Ball’s PUMA MB.01 “Buzz City” is Unveiled

A nod to his Charlotte Hornets uniforms.

LaMelo Ball is indisputably one of the most electrifying point guards in the NBA right now as he’s been racking up 19 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in his sophomore season. And all-year long, the lanky hooper has been balling out in his first signature shoe — the PUMA MB.01 — which has now officially been unveiled in a “Buzz City” colorway.

The two-toned rendition is an overt nod to the colors of the Charlotte Hornets, and deviates away from the flamboyant, all-red aesthetic that was seen on the model’s inaugural makeup. The base layer is formed with breathable mesh and synthetic materials and comes mostly doused with a stealthy “Puma Black” tone. Second in line comes a vivid “Blue Atoll” hue which provides a decent amount of pop across the intricately embroidered collar wings, PUMA logo borders on the forefoot, “1 of 1” notations on the tongues, wings down the middle of the throat and the “Not From Here” slogan right above the toe box. Another “1 of 1” marking is positioned on the medial side’s forefoot, but it’s presented in tonal fashion. Galaxy patterns are printed across the insoles and come paired with white branding while the sculpted midsoles and treading are done up in more black.

You can find these court-ready sneakers releasing on February 4 via PUMA for $125 USD.

Elsewhere in the footwear world, PUMA recently honored Nipsey Hussle with a new The Marathon Clothing collection.
