Lonzo Ball's first signature shoe dropped a short time ago.
Big Baller Brand released the ZO2: Prime this afternoon, and quite frankly, the shoes don't look half bad. I definitely expected worse.
However, one thing that is ugly is the price tag. You see, you can pre-order Ball's shoe, which won't ship until November, for the low price of $495.
Yes, that's right. The shoes cost $495. These people can't believe it either.
Incredibly, if you want a limited-edition autographed version of the ZO2: Prime's, those are a shade less than $1,000. Hell, a pair of slide sandals is more than two hundred.
So, yeah. Lonzo, LaVar and the whole Ball clan, good luck actually getting people to buy the shoes at these prices.
Guess that's what happens when you have to manufacture the kicks yourselves.
