After all the hype and hoopla that Lavar Ball drummed up for his BBB brand’s ZO2 Prime sneakers, it’s been confirmed that the original – and much mocked – silhouette has been scrapped for a new “remix” version of the first design.

We will admit that this new design is indeed an improvement over the original Black Mamaba-bitten ZO’s, but the question remains, what about the hundreds of people like Jay-Z who pre-ordered the never released OG ZO2’s? Were they sold snake oil at the end of the day? Who’s to say they don’t prefer the prototypes to the remix? Will they get to choose which design they want? For $495 they better at least get their new pairs autographed by Magic Johnson.

Check out Lonzo Ball talkin’ about the new kicks below and let us know if you’ll be checkin’ for the remix when it drops.
