Lonzo Ball Hasn’t Been Drafted Yet, But Wants You to Spend $495 on his Signature Shoe

Lonzo Ball has yet to play a minute in the NBA. In fact, the UCLA standout hasn’t even been drafted yet, but he’s ready to sell you his signature show, released under his family’s very own Big Baller Brand.


The sneakers, called the Z02 Prime, aren’t cheap. According to Slam magazine, which posted three-minute video about the shoes on Thursday, a pair of ZO2 Primes are retailing for $495.

If that’s too much, then you can just forget about owning a pair of ZO2 Wet kicks. Sure, they may appear to be exactly the same as the Primes, but these limited edition pairs come resting on a mirror in an illuminated glass box and sport a fresh Lonzo Ball signature. Those cost $995.

Hmm … Maybe you’re interested in owning the Z02 slides? They’ll set you back a mere $220.

While this may all seem a bit costly now, these could wind up being collectors’ items if Ball turns out to be as good as the hype. Having averaged 14.6 points and an NCAA-best 7.6 assists at UCLA, the point guard is projected to be a top-five pick in the NBA draft in June.

Of course, only time will tell if he becomes the legend his father LaVar believes he is.

Speaking of Ball’s dad, who at times has overshadowed his son with his boisterous personality, is still searching for business partners to buy into what he says should be a $1 billion deal with the Big Baller Brand. So far, Nike, Adidas and Under Armour have all — shockingly! — passed.

The Internet, meanwhile, has been reasonably kind to the Big Baller shoes … well, their design, at least. The high price, though? That’s caused a bit backlash, and a lot of funny GIFs.
