To celebrate the re-opening of its Beverly Hills boutique, Hermès decided to try and rope in Kobe Bryant and the Lakers. Fashion company released a Blue Basketball with an outrageous price tag of $13,000. Bit more pricey for the regular basketball fan.
So far, only two these sort of limited edition blue basketballs have been made, they can be ordered.
Though an odd color for a basketball, blue is chose as a tribute to California’s ocean, pools and skies. Assurance given by Hermès America CEO this ball can be used on a court to play basketball, but who wants to ruin a $13,000 Hermès basketball. A basketball made with same calfskin leather and hand-stitched just like a Birkin bag.
