We haven't heard much from Big Baller Brand in recent weeks, but the company is out with a new signature shoe. Lonzo Ball's ZO2.19 have been unveiled.
The new sneakers also come with a new, much more reasonable price tag. Last year, the original ZO2's retailed for $495, with a $1000 autographed "wet" edition available as well.
The ZO2.19's well sell for just $200. Yes, that is more than most signature sneakers for NBA superstars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Steph Curry, but at least it is a step in the right direction.
SLAM helped unveil the new Lonzo Ball/Big Baller Brand sneaker with an homage to the old "Spike and Mike" Nike commercials.

Another look at the new sneakers:
Presales for the sneakers are available today, according to the write-up. Ball will apparently wear a pair for the Lakers' season opener.
The brand will begin taking pre-orders today and is rolling out three different colorways to inaugurate the ZO2.19. One edition, titled “Madagascar,” is a multi-color collage that features different shades of red, blue, orange, white, green and black. Another edition is named “New White” and features gum soles. A third version referred to as “Lilac” has the pale violet tone found on the flowers its name after. Throughout the season the brand will be dropping a whole slate of new colorways, including a couple of Lakers-themed editions. Among those Lakers colorways is a black, yellow and white sneaker which Zo actually teases in one of the videos shot as part of this reveal. There will also be a triple-black edition among other single-color versions on the horizon.
The Lakers, now featuring LeBron James, debut tomorrow night. The team is on the road in Portland to face Damian Lillard and the Trail Blazers.
