LaVar Ball plans to design his own $1,500-shoe
As if Lonzo Ball’s $495 ZO2s that were released last May weren’t pricey enough, LaVar Ball now says that he’s planning to design his own shoe and sell it for triple the price.
It has been just two weeks since his other son, LaMelo, became the first high school player to have his signature kicks, but the surprises from the Ball family aren’t over yet as it looks like LaVar is next in line to have his shoe line — the LaVar-iccis.
In a video posted on his Facebook page, LaVar revealed that everybody in his family will get a shoe; not only his sons but also him.
LaVar admitted that he still doesn’t know when the shoes will come out, but he claimed that when they’re out, it will come at a steep price.
“Make sure you save your money because they’re gonna be $1,500 or more. Cause I’m gonna design it and they gonna be flyyy. My bad, they gonna be baller-ized!”
It remains to be seen if LaVar Ball will indeed release his shoe and sell it at a price that costs way more than an average pair of Jordans. However, it won’t be surprising if he does, especially after he claims he can beat Michael Jordan 1-on-1.
The outspoken head of the Ball family has grabbed headlines in recent months for his oft-controversial and ridiculous comments, even claiming recently that his son and Lakers rookie Lonzo is better than Stephen Curry, so this latest talk from him isn’t shocking at all.
The only other question that remains now is if someone will actually buy his shoes when they are released.
