Sept. 21 (UPI) -- NBA rookie Lonzo Ball announced a new pair of signature shoes: the ZO2 Prime Remix.

The kicks are still $495, just like his original ZO2s.


Big Baller Brand revealed the fresh new basketball shoes on Thursday.

"We decided to go back into the lab and Remix the ZO2 Primes into one of the lightest basketball shoes ever made," the company tweeted.

Lonzo also cut an ad for Slam magazine. In the short video he releases a new rap single, following Melo Ball 1 featuring Kenneth Paige, a rap he dropped earlier this month.

"Pass me the ball, and I'll shoot it," Ball says in the new rap.

"And I'll hop on the beat just to get 'em go stupid."

The new shoes are blacked out, featuring different shades of the color.

"We decided to go back into the lab and remix the ZO2 Primes to the lightest basketball shoe ever made," Lonzo said in the video for Slam.

The shoes feature a carbon fiber external counter, mono rip stop mesh, next generational foam, motion control, a hybrid cut upper, haptic 3D printed support, old school new school and semi sock construction, according to the Big Baller Brand website.

People who ordered the ZO2s when they first debuted will be sent these shoes instead. If they don't like the new shoes, they can request a refund.


If you wear size 13 or larger, the shoes cost $695.
