Puma and Porsche are collaborating on a collection to commemorate the legendary 911 Turbo, including the connection between 2024 NBA All-Star host city Indianapolis and the automotive sector.

Indianapolis is known as the racing capital of the world. It hosts the 2024 NBA All-Star event. Renowned for its rich automotive heritage, the city's relationship with the industry is celebrated through a collaboration between Puma and Porsche, honoring the iconic 911 Turbo.

LaMelo Ball's MB.03 sneaker and the All-Pro Nitro adopt a sleek gold and black color scheme reminiscent of the longstanding car series dating back to 1964. Special collaborative elements include a Porsche logo and lightning bolt on the heel, a Porsche Turbo emblem on the tongue's base, and a speedometer motif at the tongue's top.
