LaMelo Ball and PUMA have joined forces with Nickelodeon to bring a “SLIME”-themed basketball shoe to the courts. In celebration of one of the most nostalgic award shows of everyone’s youth, Ball is paying homage to the green goo with the new iteration of his signature shoe.
PUMA Hoops has unveiled the PUMA MB.02 in “SLIME,” where the colorway embodies the fluorescent green substance. Arriving in the bright lime green colorway, the shoe’s entire upper is highlighted in the neon hue, with an ombré pattern that sees the green tint meld into a lemon/lime yellow near the collar of the shoe. To iterate the slime texture, the overlays feature a drip-like graphic. The NITRO foam tasks on the splattered look while Melo’s signature wings are also treated with the dripping effect and highlighted in a tint of red/orange on the tongue and heels.
Take a look at the Nickelodeon x PUMA MB.02 “SLIME” releasing on December 23, just in time for the holidays at select retailers and on PUMA for $140 USD.
