On PUMA.com, at the PUMA NYC Flagship Store, and at Foot Locker, Foot Locker Canada, Kids Foot Locker, Champs Sports, Eastbay, and Footaction, the MB.01 (retail $125) and apparel (varying from $45 to $100) will be available.

LaMelo co-designed the MB.01, which features his personal flair throughout the shoe, from bright color selections to meticulous unique touches like an artistic outline of flames shooting down from the ankle collar, which matches Melo’s famous rocket ankle tattoo. The shoe’s tongue features LaMelo’s “Not From Here” artwork, while the outsole features the term “rare,” which represents his basketball ability.
