Big Baller Brand Unveils LaMelo Ball’s $395 Signature Shoe

Do you want to play ball like a 16-year-old high school student? Do you also have around $400 to recklessly drop on basketball sneakers that aren’t Adidas, Nike, or Jordan Brand? If so, then you might want to take a look at Big Baller Brand’s latest money grab, the “Melo Ball 1s”.

That’s right, Chino Hills star LaMelo Ball is officially the first high school player to have his own sneaker. Big Baller Brand dropped the big reveal video on these $395 kicks ($100 cheaper than the ZO2s!) today:

I don’t know about you guys, but nothing makes me want to go out and buy basketball sneakers like a montage of a high school kid hitting trick shots in his backyard.

Something to watch going forward is LaMelo’s college eligibility at UCLA:

Big Baller Brand spokesman Alan Foster on if LaMelo shoe makes him ineligible: "We will leave that up to the NCAA."

As for the MB1s, they’re available for preorder at and will ship by Dec. 23. No returns or exchanges, because Big Ballers don’t order the wrong shoe size.
