PUMA

Update 18.02.2022

The latest Rick and Morty x PUMA collection is now available at the PUMA online shop. Several pieces are still available, but the Rick and Morty x PUMA MB.01 was unfortunately sold out after only a few seconds. You can find the link to the shop here.

Update 19.01.2022

Official images of the Rick and Morty x PUMA MB.01 now confirm the drop. This is the first collaboration of LaMelo Ball’s signature shoe. The pair is a nod to the basketball player’s favourite show. Inspired by Melo’s “Not From Here” style and intergalactic adventures, the left side gets a green makeover and the right side a red one. Other details include portal graphics on the mid-foot and Rick and Morty faces on the inside of the tongues.

So far, we haven’t spotted the Rick and Morty x PUMA MB.01 on the release calendar, but the sneakers will supposedly be released by PUMA on February 18th.

LaMelo Ball’s PUMA MB.01 has been very well received by the sneaker community, and apparently, the label and the basketball player are looking to add new colourways very soon. Last week, PUMA announced a Charlotte Hornets-inspired colourway, and now, a first collab is set to drop soon.

Adult Swim’s animated series Rick and Morty is rumoured to soon inspire a PUMA MB.01. Complex confirms the sneaker in an officially licensed “Jasmine Green/Nrgy Rose” colourway, said to be reminiscent of the hit series.

The collaboration with the new silhouette may be new for the young NBA star, but Rick and Morty has had several opportunities to work with the NBA. Most recently, there were custom sneakers from Karl Anthony-Towns and Jaxson Hayes.

When Is the Rick and Morty x PUMA MB.01 Set to Drop?

The new Rick and Morty x PUMA MB.01 is rumoured to drop in just a few days at PUMA and selected retailers. Currently, the release is expected on February 1st, but this is said to be just a placeholder. The actual drop will follow later in February.
