LaVar Ball's company unveils son Lonzo Ball's $495 shoes

On Thursday, the company unveiled Lonzo Ball's signature shoe, the ZO2, and it was retailed at $495 and if that wasn't insane enough, they added some $220 flip flops.

"I figure that's what the shoe is worth", Ball said. Rather, they wanted their personal brand, Big Baller Brand, to become something more akin to Jordan Brand, a branch of Nike that grew out of Michael Jordan's Air Jordan shoe line.

LaVar Ball answered his critics on Twitter, writing: "If you can't afford the ZO2'S, you're NOT a BIG BALLER!"

Lonzo Ball unveiled his own signature basketball sneaker costing almost $500 - after the NBA star-to-be was snubbed by major shoe companies Nike, Adidas and Under Armour - thanks to his father. Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson showed proof he bought a pair, while Shaquille O'Neal, who has a signature shoe that sells for less than $60 at Walmart, scolded the Balls for charging so much.

It said the MP praised medical staff who looked after him but was anxious that some voters might be put off by his appearance. Some rice went down my airway and I started coughing and choking and laughing at the same time", Perrett told BBC News .

When asked if he would buy Ball's $500 shoes for his kids, Brown laughed, then laughed some more.

The players all make valid points as to what Ball is trying to do, despite the fact that he is going about it in a very in-your-face sort of way.

"The people that are complaining are the ones who can't get the shoe and don't want the shoe, and that's fine because there's a lot of people out here that want the shoe and can get the shoe". The website says there are no refunds or exchanges, a risky proposition for a shoe people can't try on before they order.
