Eric Ebron Displays Common Sense, Won’t Buy Ball’s ZO2’s

One of the NFL’s biggest shoe collectors is not buying Lonzo Ball’s ZO2 shoe that cost $495.

Lions tight end Eric Ebron is taking a stand for common sense by saving his money. This is a guy who had a pair of custom cleats designed for every game last season and gifted a pair of Jordans to Matthew Stafford for his wedding. It goes without saying, Ebron loves him some premium shoes.

Speaking to ESPN about his shoe collection Ebron said:

“First of all, I’m not paying $495 for someone that’s unproven,” Ebron said. “I wish him the best. I believe that he’ll be great. I loved his game at UCLA, but I’m not going to pay $495 for your shoes when Michael Jordan is $200, $250.

“That don’t make sense.”

He also made the comparison that literally millions of people have made, all Lonzo Ball has right now is a future, the shoes could be worthless in a few years.

For comparisons sake, do some shopping around and you could conceivably buy a pair of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Steph Curry and Kobe Bryant shoes and still be paying less (depending on sales tax) than Ball’s ZO2 asking price.

With that in mind, the Lakers won the number two pick in the 2017 NBA draft, so it is very likely Ball will be staying in Los Angeles.
