Lonzo Ball set Twitter on fire today when he unveiled his Big Baller Brand “Z02 Prime” signature shoes.
The predominately black, low-top kicks bear a strong resemblance to the Nike Kobe 11 and while they’re not bad looking, the $495 price tag is absolutely outrageous. Almost everyone had something to say about Ball’s debut sneakers, including Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, who came at Lonzo Ball’s father, LaVar, telling him that “real big ballers don’t over charge kids for shoes.”
