David Raysse — the designer behind Brandblack, Santa Ana, and the latest Big Baller Brand shoes — has shared a sample of LiAngelo Ball’s first signature shoe.
Pictured here is the first size 13 Gelo signature shoe for basketball. However, the inspiration comes from a different sport. “I was inspired by the Deion Sanders trainers of the 90s, super supportive but cool,” wroter Raysse on Instagram.
The sample — called a “pullover” because it is not attached to tooling and appears to still be in the prototyping phase — uses no knit. Instead, it appears to be a mix of leathers, suedes, and synthetics.
There is still no word on whether this signature Gelo shoe will be released, but look for LiAngelo Ball and LaMelo Ball to headline the first-ever JBA All-Star rosters.
