Lonzo Ball’s Big Baller Brand ZO2.19 is Revealed — With it’s Price Slashed in Half
So, they’re no longer for Big Ballers Only?
When Lonzo Ball’s debut signature sneaker, the ZO2 Remix, hit the scene last year, it caused quite a noise.
No, not because of it’s blatant rip-off of BOOST and the Kobe series, but its almost $500 price tag, which was justified by BBB Founder (and Lonzo’s dad) LaVar Ball as a snekaer for “Big Ballers Only”
Because if you couldn’t afford it, you’re not a Big Baller.
But it seems like LaVar has changed his tune — perhaps sue to sluggish sales of an overpriced, under developed sneaker? We think so.
The follow up to the ZO2 Remix, the Z02.19, debuts at a much more realistic price point of $200 — even then, it’s a bit of a stretch, it’s retailing for more than any other current NBA player’s signature sneaker.
But, surprisingly, the sneaker features a few improvements like a forefoot strap, which is made from a full grain nappa leather and the addition of suede hits on the upper and toe box. Other elements like the mesh upper and a midsole that BBB claims to be “40 percent better than EVA foam” separate the sneaker from its previous iteration, according to Slam.
