Move over travel mug, branded basketballs are the latest popular promotional object for companies and collectors. As soon as decent printing upon a basketball was available a few years ago, an explosion of collabs and special edition basketballs began appearing. Bearing the names and logos of the most prestigious luxury brands to the trendiest streetwear and lifestyle brands, there are now regulation size basketballs available for any status-seeker.
The Luxury Branded Basketballs
From the $12,900. limited edition Hermès basketball for the launch of the 2013 Hermes boutique in Beverly Hills to Dutch brand Moooi’s Monster ball by Marcel Wanders, just about every hip and luxury fashion brand is now or has offered a branded basketball at one time or another. Over the years we’ve seen some from CHANEL and PRADA, many from The Market (formerly Chinatown Market) and of course the collaborations from Wilson, Spalding, Adidas and more.
All of the following are real products, either available as new or for resale at such online sites as 1st Dibs, SSSense StockX and Grailed.
