Puma have been getting decent traction when it comes to basketball shoes, and the MB.01 continues to enhance that reputation. This shoe just GRIPS. The outsole pattern design gives unbelievable grip on court without sacrificing any court feel. Infact, court feel is here in abundance, perfect for players twisting, powering and blocking from end to end. With a non-slip rubber compound making up the outsole, any fears over durability can be wiped away just like the dust off that outdoor court you ball out. 

The MB.01 rides on a bed of Nitro foam, Puma’s flagship cushioning tech. A soft feel and plenty of responsiveness are the delights this full length NITRO foam midsole brings to the party. It finds just the right balance between responsiveness and impact protection, giving you confidence in your moves with just enough bounce back to not be distracting.

With a 3D printed upper combined with Puma’s monomesh material which offers impressive breathability without compromising on weight. The Puma MB.01 offers good padding across the board.
