Would you even bounce this B-ball on a basketball court not made of the most exotic type of woods?
This blue basketball byHermèsmust be a bibelot, as it is hard to imagine anyone actually playing with a ball that cost around $12,800 more than an official, indoor-use-only NBA ball.
The ball is one of two made by the Parisian fashion house that is renowned for its supple, well-crafted leathery goods. The special ball was created to celebrate the re-opening of Hermès ‘Beverly Hills boutique shop, which is a 12,000 square-foot store.
Robert Chavez, the American CEO of Hermès told Yahoo Sports that the ball is fully functional. The blue is for the sky, the ocean, and all the swimming pools that frame the quintessential L.A. lifestyle.
Who needs a second car when you could buy a basketball from Hermès for13 grand instead?
