A new iteration of the Puma MB.02 basketball sneaker is releasing soon.
The German sportswear brand announced on its release calendar that the new “Gorangé” iteration of Charlotte Hornets star point guard’s signature basketball shoe will be released before month’s end.
The Puma MB.02 “Gorangé” wears a predominantly gray hue on the engineered woven mesh upper and on the overlays featured throughout the midfoot, but the look is offset by vibrant orange accents on the tongue and heel tab. Cushioning the underfoot is the signature Nitro foam midsole in gray, while more of the aforementioned orange hits appear toward the heel. Completing the look is a two-tone rubber outsole, with gray at the forefoot and orange on the heel.
“MB.02 Gorangé —the latest drop in LaMelo Ball’s otherworldly PUMA Hoops lineup—is exploding onto the scene. Laying the groundwork for this second silhouette is a NITRO foam-infused midsole that mimics Melo’s signature wings,” Puma wrote for the product description.
The Puma MB.02 “Gorangé” will be released on May 12 at Puma.com and at select Puma retailers, including at Foot Locker and Champs Sports. The shoe will come with a $130 price tag.
