Earlier today, SLAM and the Big Baller Brand officially unveiled the upcoming LM1 (LaMelo Ball 1). The Internets went nuts because it seemed like BBB had ripped off yet another sneaker brand’s looks. However, that isn’t the case at all.
A very reliable source close to the brand, who spoke with us on the condition of anonymity, stated that Brandblack’s David Raysse and Billy Dill have created a separate design consultancy that is currently working with the Big Baller Brand.
Not only are they helping BBB develop their upcoming sneakers from a design perspective, but they’re also assisting BBB in creating new technology and materials that are said to differentiate the BBB products from what Brandblack produces.
Not much more information can be divulged at the moment, but once we’re allowed to release full information then we’ll do so. In the meantime, you can expect the Big Baller Brand sneaker to officially become available this holiday season for a retail price of $385. Pre-orders are currently being taken exclusively at BigBallerBrand.com.
