The Puma MB.01 is LaMelo Ball’s first signature shoe with Puma. In his first two seasons in the NBA, LaMelo Ball has really made a statement and often appears in highlight reels. He’s cemented himself as one of the league’s most promising talents. The Puma MB.01 has panned out to be one of the best overall basketball shoes on the market, the best volleyball shoes and the best Puma basketball shoe available.
