LaMelo Ball shoes are signature sneakers that are produced and owned by the Puma hoops brand. The hoops sneaker was birthed following a multi-million dollar agreement signed between Puma and LaMelo Ball, in October 2022.
The 21-year old point guard signed the deal exactly a month after he was selected with the third overall pick by the Charlotte Hornets, in the 2020 NBA draft. As at the time of writing this article, LaMelo Ball still plays for the Hornets.
The German company, Puma, has since produced a considerable number of the LaMelo Ball shoes. In late August 2022, the latest version of the sneakers, MB.01 Iridescent Dreams, was released and put up for sale on the Puma website, for $125.
However, since the sneakers are produced to be sold to the public, people, mostly amateur basketball players, have been buying it for use on the courts. These owners of the sneakers do share their views on various platforms, about the footwear. So, in this article, we will tell you what some people have been saying about the signature LaMelo Ball shoes.
What is being said about LaMelo Ball Shoes?
The shoes or sneakers, just as any other products, are not made with total perfection. There will definitely be pros and cons about the sneakers which has been or is still being worn by some NBA stars including LaMelo himself.
Some users of the sneakers will definitely see a problem(s) with the footwear and as a result, they will say ‘unpleasant’ words about the product. Those that have not yet seen any cons about the product, will also say nice words about it.
On the Puma web page that displays the MB.01 Iridescent Dreams for sale, a dissatisfied customer, Alberta, indicated in the review section that; “The second i put them on, the sole FELL OFF! the other shoe felt too tight and it wasn’t comfortable for me! Plus the box i got was crushed up and the shoe wasn’t as black as i was expecting(sic).” The customer further stated that he would not recommend the MB.01 Iridescent Dreams sneakers to anyone.
One other thing that’s much talked about is the sneaker’s traction. A lot of people who wear the product often complain that the shoe picks up dust too often. This has even been acknowledged by the manufacturer.
A twitter user, Ben Dover, recently tweeted asking to know if it was his shoe alone that picks up dusk too often or if it’s something general with all LaMelo Ball shoes.
Another twitter user is of the view that the shoe manufacturer had focused much on the style rather than the functionality of the sneakers. He also talked about the dusk pick up.
