Melo becomes the first person to receive a Puma Basketball signature sneaker since Vince Carter in 1999 and joins fellow Puma athlete Breanna Stewart in getting their own signature; excluding rapper J Cole who’s also signed to the brand and has the Dreamer 1 & 2 silhouette out now.
Arriving in a full Red makeup no technical details of the mid top sneaker has been shared yet. So far we can comment on the branding that sees the text ‘Not From Here’, which seems to be the campaign phrase for the roll out of Melo’s gear, printed at the bottom of the laces. Other details include a mini Puma form strip on the toe box along with Melos personal number 1 wings logo and the text ‘1 of 1’ on the tongue.
Take a closer look below at the Puma MB1, and stay tuned for more updates on technical specifications and release info.
