Just in time for the start of the 2018-19 NBA season, Big Baller Brand is back with a new sneaker for their one and only athlete that wears them: Lonzo Ball. Not that you or anyone else you know will be able to own and wear a pair anytime soon even though they are beginning to take pre-orders today.
For you see, according to the Big Baller Brand website, “ALL ZO2.19 ORDERS WILL SHIP FEBRUARY 1ST 2019. No Refunds.” LaVar probably needs your money to pay off his JBA players before going into mass production. (Hey, they didn’t get that F rating from the Better Business Bureau for nothing!)
On the plus side, you will only be out $200 for a few months rather than the absurd $495 BBB was asking for Lonzo’s first signature shoe.
So what do you get for your two Benjamins?
All the support you need with the versatility and agility of a low-top
Forefoot strap in addition to lacing provides incredible support in the most aggressive cuts and directional changes
The ZO2.19 uses genuine full grain nappa leather & ultra soft genuine suede usually reserved for luxury sneakers & accessories
NEXT GENERATION FOAM
ZO2.19 revolutionary foam has 40% more rebound than standard EVA foam. The ZO2.19 rides lower for better feel and stability while still providing incredible impact protection
The outside of ZO2.19 has an outrigger with a small radius to give maximum stability during quick cuts, the inside has a much larger radius so you can smoothly drag your opposite foot when cutting without catching an edge
Right now the shoes are available in New White, Madagascar and Lilac, but SLAM reports a bunch more colors are coming, including a couple of Lakers-themed editions… you just won’t be able to get those for a few months either.
