He may not have been officially drafted by an NBA team, but Lonzo Ball is already getting his foot in the game...with shoes that is.
LaVar Ball's Big Baller Brand -- the shoe company owned by Lonzo's father--unveiled its ZO2 shoe line that's designed and dedicated to the UCLA standout point guard, ESPN reported.

The shoes come in at a high price. A pair of autographed shoes, in the "Wet" color scheme, are being sold for $995. The main shoe will cost about half that: $495.
In case you're wondering what's so special about the shoes, besides the fact that they're designed for a sports superstar, they flaunt a "microfiber python texture" and a "Delorean finish."

Many on social media were quick to criticize the shoe.
