Twitter reacts to Lonzo's first signature shoe, the Z02 Prime.
Lonzo Ball and the Big Baller Brand officially unveiled his $495 "Z02 Prime" signature sneaker today and as you'd expect, everyone had something to say about it.
The predominately black, low-top kicks bear a strong resemblance to the Nike Kobe 11 and while they're not that bad looking, the $495 price tag is patently absurd. Even Shaq had to hop on social media to comment on the ZO2 Prime.

Check out what Shaq, and the rest of twitter, had to say about Lonzo's ZO2 Prime sneaker below.

It is kinda weird how much of Twitter is rooting for mega-billion dollar international shoe corporations vs. some players' dad— Rodger Sherman (@rodger_sherman) May 4, 2017
A year ago none of you knew who Lonzo Ball was. A year later youre arguing about his $500 shoe. Love him or not, Lavar is a marketing genius— Aaron Torres (@Aaron_Torres) May 4, 2017

All jokes aside. The Zo2 logo with a Z an O & a 2 in it is flames. Lightyears ahead of BBB's 1998 Pure Playaz shirts https://t.co/mr2KnInhqG— Larry Beyince (@DragonflyJonez) May 4, 2017
