Puma MB.03 Breakdown
Seems like next season LaMelo Ball will be throwing dimes and showing his elite ball handling package in his new signature shoe - Puma MB.03.
The upcoming third generation of the MB. signature line receives a slight evolution when it comes to silhouette, but does reveal fresh details that allow it to be distinguished from past models.
Continuing this unique storytelling, the signature flame and wing details have been replaced by the mysterious creature's scratched-out design to begin the new chapter. A double-layered upper features TPU overlay covered in all-over Victorian print specific to the "La France" colorway, while scratches on the toe box reveal mesh-based main upper construction.
The Puma MB.03 is the first from the line to have an asymmetrical lacing system for added containment which is combined with Melo's signature wing logo as "LF and "RARE" branding can be spotted across the tongue. Meanwhile, the scratched-out theme spreads onto the sides where the upscaled claw marks go up onto the upper to improve the lateral stability of the shoe.
Similarly to the outgoing model, the MB.03's outsole boasts "RARE" branding shared on both shoes. The heel section once again features scratches that display what's inside the midsole. At the moment, we don't have any information about the Puma MB.03 specifications, though NITRO foam is expected to be back at work.
