Back in July, Lakers rookie and second overall draft pick Lonzo Ball took home the NBA Summer League’s MVP Award, after putting up some gaudy Nike Air Max 95 Femme statistics. But more intriguing was his sneaker stat split: In the two games Ball wore his own signature sneaker, the $495 Big Baller Brand ZO2 ($995 if you want his signature), he averaged just eight points. But when he laced Adidas Superstar Femme Noir up in anything else—like James Harden’s signature Adidas kicks and the Jordan 31—Ball dropped MVP-grade numbers. Plenty started whispering, “It’s gotta be the shoes,” but not in the good way when it came to Zo’s signature sneakers.The ZO2s emerged only after Lonzo’s father, Lavar Ball, declined to pursue deals with the three biggest sneakers brands in basketball—Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour—on the grounds that each wasn’t offering enough money. For Lavar, enough meant $3 billion, three times the reported worth of LeBron James’s lifetime Nike contract. Nike Air Max 90 Femme The Balls decided to go it alone, independently producing Adidas NMD Mujer the BBB ZO2, and charging almost four times the going rate for most signature sneakers around the league. The ZO2s were available by pre-order in May and slated for a November delivery, and Lavar Ball implied on ESPN’s The Herd on May 8 that the brand had sold 495 pairs Adidas NMD Mujer Rosa of ZO2s. (Sneaker site Nice Kicks put the number at closer to 263, while a week later the LA Times totaled 356 pairs sold by using Big Baller Brand’s website source data.) That’s not half bad for a first-time brand selling $500 kicks in a crowded space—but not exactly putting fear in the hearts of Nike or Adidas. So it was fair to ask why Lonzo’s father/hypeman Lavar had created the ZO2s in the first place.

Was he serious about taking on the establishment? Or were the shoes just a ploy to get the Nikes and Adidas ZX 750 Dam Adidases of the world to up their offers? Why would Lonzo Adidas ZX Flux Dámské be wearing other brands’ sneakers at all if BBB was truly serious about making waves in the industry?The answer might be that Lonzo was just been doing some product research to find out which design elements to bring to own kicks. In September, BBB announced that it had re-designed the ZO2 sneaker, and unveiled much sleeker model dubbed the “ZO2: Prime Remix.” Lonzo Adidas ZX Flux Femme Ball has worn them in every game so far during the regular season, and the results have been, according to most NBA analysts, okay so far. (At the time of this writing Lonzo had averages of 9.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game.) But this time around, Big Baller Brand had help from an unlikely partner in crafting the better-looking kicks.The story of Lonzo Ball’s remixed signature shoe starts with his little brother’s. On August 31, Big Baller Brand Adidas NMD Womens released the Melo Ball 1, a sneaker hailed by BBB as the first-ever signature sneaker for a high school athlete (Lonzo’s 16-year-old brother, LaMelo). As commenters began to speculate on the eligibility implications of a student with his own sneaker, sneakerheads took notice of the the similarities between the Melo 1 and another shoe, from the shape of the shoe to the sole to the pattern on the upper: the Rare Metal, from upstart Brandblack.

That same day, Wear Testers, a site dedicated to rigorously testing basketball sneakers, reported that this wasn’t an act of design Nike Air Max 2016 Womens theft, but of collaboration between an extension of Brandblack and Big Baller Brand. But if either party was trying to hide the fact that the two brands had teamed up, they didn’t do a very good job: if you look closely at the side of the ZO2 Remix, which Nike Air Max 90 Femme debuted just three weeks after the Melo 1, you’ll see a print that reads “Santa Ana”—the name of a design consultancy started in August 2017 by Brandblack founder Nike Air Max 90 Womens David Raysse and creative director Billy Dill.Brandblack has only been around for three and a half years, but it’s had the backing of one of the biggest sneaker brands on the planet, Skechers, since its inception. The label was founded by Raysse, a Skechers executive who was the director of Adidas Basketball in the late 90s. The ZO2 isn’t Brandblack’s first go-around in the NBA signature sneaker space—it designed signature sneakers for Jamal Crawford until 2016. Brandblack does not currently make sneakers for any NBA athletes, but it’s broadened its business elsewhere: In late 2014, the brand expanded into apparel, and its products are sold at streetwear meccas like Kith Adidas Superstar Womens White and Union.
