LaMelo becomes the first high schooler to have his own signature sneaker.

LaMelo becomes the first high schooler to have his own signature sneaker.

Named the MB1, the model is a slim-fitting, low-profiled baller with heat-bonded uppers and what looks to be a neoprene tongue. It’s likely modelled to perform like the Harden Vol 1 , which Melo is often seen in, but sneakerheads are quick to point out its resemblance to Brand Black’s Rare Metal offering. In fact, the midsole on the MB1 looks to be exactly the same – right down to the textured finish. The camo colourway also takes after a Rare Metal, but it’s been tweaked slightly. It’s one of those ‘you can copy my homework if you make it look like your own’ moments in the sneaker industry, and BBB seems to have put aside originality in order to make a submission date.
