Puma MB.01 Lo Review

Pros:
Aggressive, grippy traction
Balanced cushioning setup
Cons:
Cheap feeling materials

Performance of the Puma MB.01 Lo:

Not much changed between the original Puma MB.01 and the low-top version. The traction is still reliable on all surfaces. Puma's Nitro foam is a balanced cushioning setup offering both impact protection and responsiveness. The fit can be narrow, but the materials are comfortable and get the job done performance-wise. The shoe also has solid support features to keep your foot secure and contained. Overall, the Puma MB.01 Low continues the trend of Puma releasing quality performance basketball shoes.

The Puma MB.01 Lo is not a shoe I can recommend over the mid-top version. It's still a solid shoe, but the traction didn't perform as well for me on the Lo compared to the original.

Shoe is not the best right out of the box, to begin with there was a slight heel slippage. But it did not last long once I broke the shoes in. Cushion is very plush, yet responsive. Traction is great on clean or dusty conditions, and has minimal dust pickup. Although the shoe is a little heavy for a low top, this is a solid pick-up!

An above average shoe. Nice snug fit, good mix of cushion/support and stability/court feel. Grip is decent. Only con is I think they feel slightly larger/heavier than they need to be. This is personal preference as I prefer less cushion/bounce and more court feel.

traction is great, if you courts are clean. The shoe picks up dust pretty frequently and it doesn’t help if you used them outdoor, because then you’ll just pick up dust every possession. This shoe would be a the typical starter shoe for new hoppers

Very good all around shoe, ankle support isn’t the best but it’s a low top so what do you expect.

I didn't need to wipe my feet one time. The traction performs well.

Traction is the best feature of the shoe. It's the same as the high-top version, so it's aggressive and grippy.

The solid rubber outsole had a long break-in period. It didn't perform as well as the translucent outsoles, but it was still solid.

The Low has the same Nitro foam setup as the mid-top version. It has a lot of impact protection while also offering some court feel. Once it gets broken in, the cushioning excels.

The cushioning is soft and not clunky. It's not the best for court feel, but it makes up for it with impact protection.

The internal heel counter locks you in very well, and the midsole materials help keep you contained laterally. Puma did a great job with the support features.

The shoe has no heel pillows, so players with narrow heels might have slippage issues. Otherwise, the fit does a good job of keeping you contained.

My toe goes right to the edge of the shoe, and cranking down the laces will help keep you locked in.
