Now that It’s almost been 2 weeks since the ZO2 had dropped and sent basketball fans, and sneaker lovers into an outrage. I thought i would put in my 2 cents on the subject. Yes the price tag is hefty at $495,yes the concept is plain and so what if it resembles other sneakers. Seems like a lot of the criticism towards the sneaker is mainly towards the price tag and the man at the helm of Big Baller Brand “BBB” , Lonzo’s father Lavar Ball.
When i first heard of this shoe being released i was sitting in class and i didn’t really get a good look at it till later on in the day. Me being a fan of Lonzo Ball and his game, my first impression was “O they aight i like the simplicity”. Would i personally spend a whopping $495…NO i wouldn’t but hey I’m not a big baller as Lavar Ball said “Big Baller’s loose! If you can’t afford the ZO2’S, you’re NOT a BIG BALLER! ” Im not on that level yet but i would if i had money to blow. Since they have been released we have seen a lot of love & hate for the young man and his shoes. Love him or hate him Lonzo Ball can ball and will continue to ball, what the future holds no one knows. But we do know one thing with the NBA Draft coming up it’s expected that Lonzo goes #2 overall to the Lakers, if he does go there we could see a high demand of these sneakers. Just wonder homegrown cali boy goes to UCLA then gets drafted by one of the most coveted franchises in all of professional sports the Los Angeles Lakers, Yup these shoes are selling no matter the price tag.
