Lonzo Ball Drops Big Baller Brand Signature Shoe
One could ask, what did The ZO1’s even look like?
On Thursday afternoon, Lonzo Ball made it official, debuting The ZO2, his independently produced signature shoe as part of his family owned Big Baller Brand.
The UCLA stud point guard and potential number one pick in the 2017 NBA Draft has been all over the news in recent months, thanks in part to his father LaVar Ball who has for quite some time been comparing his boy to the likes of Steph Curry, LeBron James, and Russell Westbrook, while making claims that he himself could take Michael Jordan in a game of 1-on-1.
Since UCLA’s elimination from the NCAA Tournament, Father Ball was in negotiations with the likes of Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour, in hopes of finding co-branding opportunities (as opposed to a standard endorsement deal). Just a week ago, reports arose that Ball was no longer in negotiations with the three big sports footwear giants as negotiations seemed to have fallen through.
Fast forward to today and Lonzo Ball has his first ever signature shoe.
LaVar Ball is turning dreams into realities for his children.
Now Lonzo Ball seems like he is a special player, but boy this kid better be good in the NBA.
In case you are wondering how much these premium kicks are, they can be purchased for $495, or you can get it upgraded and receive the shoe with an autograph from Lonzo Ball himself for $995.
How can anyone say no?
