LaVar Ball has dropped the ZO2, the first sneaker on his Big Baller Brand.
LaVar and Lonzo Ball have made good on their promise to go the independent route and release their own basketball shoe under the Big Baller Brand.
While a lot of people were probably preparing for another Twitter roast session similar to the Steph Curry shoe release, it turns out at the shoes themselves are not bad at all.
And now for the fun part!!!
How much do they cost? Only a mere $495. I know what you’re wondering. What if I have big feet (because of course you are). If you’re a size 14 or 15, it’ll run you $695.
But, why would LaVar stop there? That’s just the low-end version. There’s also a $995 version that comes autographed by Lonzo Ball, a key-locked glass box with a floor mirror
and with LED lights. according to SLAM Mag:
BBB is aiming for Lonzo’s signature sneaker to tap into a new market—above the athletic performance kicks from the likes of Nike, Jordan, adidas and Under Armour, but below the high-end designer shoes of Gucci, Prada or Louis Vuitton. The ZO2 Prime comes with a $495 price tag.
There is also a limited ZO2 WET Autographs edition, which will come in a key-locked glass box with a floor mirror, LED lights and an autograph from the Chino Hills prodigy himself. It will cost $995.
And while you’re at it, why not cop some BBB sandals ($220)…hat (starting at $50)…or a t-shirt ($50)!
In all seriousness, kudos to the Ball family, particularly, LaVar for sticking to his guns and setting an unprecedented bar with the first independently-produced sneaker from and NBA player (or soon to be).
