It was only a few hours ago that Lonzo Ball and Big Baller Brand unveiled their first signature shoe, the ZO2 Prime. Of course after announcing the $495 USD price tag that comes along with it, Twitter blew up with ridiculing Ball and the sneaker. One of those calling out Ball is none other than former Lakers center and NBA Hall-of-Famer Shaquille O’Neal, who happens to offer up his own line of signature shoes which are notably more affordable than the ZO2s.

Shaq first signed a shoe deal with Reebok back in 1992 with the Shaq Attaq being his first signature shoe going for $130 USD. Today, most signature basketball shoes range from $100 USD to $190 USD.
