Lamelo Ball's rookie year in the NBA was impressive to say the least. The young point guard showed he not only has an incredible passing ability but that he can also put the ball in the basket pretty much whenever he wants.
His impressive first year earned him a sneaker deal with PUMA and he got his first signature shoe, the MB.01. They were received very well and will now be collaborating with Adult Swim's popular animated series, Rick & Morty.
The collaboration will see Lamelo's shoe combined with a Jasmine Green/Nrgy Rose colourway, inspired by that of the Rick & Morty title. The show is not new to shoe collaborations, with a collab already with Diadora (2018) under their belt. The show has also crossed over into the NBA via the avenue of custom NBA shoe designs worn by the likes of Karl-Anthony Towns and Jaxson Hayes.
Although no official release date has been announced, the MB.01 X Rick & Morty is said to be dropping Feb. 1 at retailers for a price of around $125, per SoleCollector.
