Big Baller Brand officially unveiled Lonzo Ball’s first signature shoe on Thursday. With a price tag of $495, the ZO2 was bound to be the recipient of some heavy social media roasting, and the internet, as always, did not disappoint. Here are some of our favorite reactions.

Two years ago I interviewed high school star Lonzo Ball postgame. Now I can't afford even one pair of his shoes. Life comes at you fast. pic.twitter.com/xT1QwCY1CS

Shaq had one of the most pointed reactions to the shoe, calling out LaVar Ball for the sneaker’s hefty price tag.
LaVar Ball himself of course had to chime in.
Big Baller's loose! If you can't afford the ZO2'S, you're NOT a BIG BALLER! ????
