The NBA’s 2021 Rookie of the Year LaMelo Ball continues his partnership with PUMA with a new approach to his signature model, the MB.01. Re-designing it as a low-top sneaker, Ball premieres the the MB.01 Lo with a “UFO” colorway that continues his “Not From Here” themes found on previous iterations of the MB.01.

Designed for high-energy and explosive styles of play, the MB.01 Lo integrates the latest PUMA Hoops technology including Nitro Foam in the midsole, providing necessary responsiveness and comfort. Dressed in shades of gray, the pair includes hits of bright teal at the trim and outsole. The out-of-this-world theme stands out at the tongue where a UFO graphic rests. It then continues with a galaxy patterned insole reminiscent of his previously released MB.01 “Galaxy.” Additional callouts to the NBA star include his “1 of 1” logotype at the forefoot and “M.E.L.O.” going down the heel.

Retailing at $120 USD, the MB.01 Lo “UFO” will be available starting June 16 via PUMA and select retailers.

In case you missed it, PUMA teamed up with Dunkin’ for Iced Coffee Day this year.
