While we won’t be seeing LaMelo Ball suiting up for the playoffs due to the Charlotte Hornets getting knocked out of the play-in game, we can still be connected to the young hooper this season through his product launches with PUMA. His signature line continues to grow steadily, and it’s ready to add another entry to its catalog: the PUMA MB.01 “Galaxy” colorway.

For this newest hardwood-ready offering, Ball allows the galactic graphics to do most of the heavy lifting. Milky-way inspired prints are plastered across the rear paneling as well as the entire interior lining. These come complemented by navy embroidered wings on the lateral side and synthetic overlays on the medial. In addition, fluorescent pops of neon red are dripped onto the tongue’s “1 of 1” hits, laces and forefoot PUMA logos, and mated with bold blue toe boxes and neon green pops atop the throat and outsoles. The color palette is somewhat reminiscent of Kevin Durant‘s iconic NERF x Nike KD 4 from 2011.

Detailed shots of the kicks are available to peep above, and note that these are dropping via PUMA on April 29 for $140 USD.
