West Coast rapper Game and Slim Thug have no shame in dropping a grip on future NBA superstar Lonzo Ball‘s new ZO2: Prime By Lonzo Ball sneakers. The duo have defended spending hundreds on the kicks.

Game and Slim went to Instagram Wednesday (May 10) to justify their purchases.

After the shoes launched for pre-sale, sales mounted up to well over 250 pairs.

Well, according to a report from NiceKicks.com, who did some sleuthing, the answer (for the first day, at least) is 263. Of those, 210 were the “regular” $495 version, and 53 were the special, autographed version that came in at $995. If you’re doing the math at home, that’s over $150,000. That may not sound like much, but for an independent company, marketing a player who still hasn’t even been drafted, it’s pretty impressive. (CBS Sports)

The kicks are expected to turn into a top-tier choice in the sneaker world.

BBB is aiming for Lonzo’s signature sneaker to tap into a new market—above the athletic performance kicks from the likes of Nike, Jordan, adidas and Under Armour, but below the high-end designer shoes of Gucci, Prada or Louis Vuitton. The ZO2 Prime comes with a $495 price tag. There is also a limited ZO2 WET Autographs edition, which will come in a key-locked glass box with a floor mirror, LED lights and an autograph from the Chino Hills prodigy himself. It will cost $995.
