These new ‘Zos will retail for $200, a 60 percent price cut from last year’s $495. And, in keeping with the cut-rate theme, here’s a cut-rate version of the classic Mars Blackmon-Michael Jordan Nike commercials:


… which is fine because nobody buying the Lonzos was alive to see the Jordan ads, or Jordan himself, in the first place.

Anyway, the ZO2s are likely to draw a bit of critical attention, to say the least. Granted, designing sneakers is tough work, and not everyone gets it right all the time. So we’re not going to say that these shoes look like a wrinkled Hawaiian shirt your dad wears on the third day of a Caribbean cruise. We’re not going to say they look like someone devoured an entire pumpkin of Halloween candy and threw it back up again. We’re not going to say they look like a kindergartner left a handful of crayons out on hot asphalt. And we’re definitely not going to say they look like the opening credits from “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” sweet-talked your grandmother’s mall-walkers into having a baby.

No, we’ll leave the critiques to you, dear reader. Have your say in the comments below.
