style transcends everything; from the clothing you wear to the gadgets and even sports gear you use. speaking of style, we are familiar with the former two, but how do you stand out, say for example, in a basketball court? well, the maestro of leathered sports gear, Leather Head has the perfect answer: the Leather Head Naismith Style Lace Up Basketball. inspired and designed to look like the original lace-up basketball when the ball game first started in the late 1800s (looks pretty much like a medicine ball, if you ask us), each Leather Head Naismith Style Lace Up Basketball is made of eight American tanned leather panels, a tough rubber bladder, laced up with a rawhide lace, and finished off with a set of classy polyester thread stitching – making this leather-wrapped ball looks as awesome in your sports hall of fame as in the court.
despite the throwback design, it is designed to be used like a regular basketball and so, yes. it can be dribbled and shot like your regular Spalding items, except that it may not meet the official NBA standard, but who cares if you are just shooting around your ‘hood (in style, we might add)? the Leather Head Naismith Style Lace Up Basketball measures 30 1/4 inches in circumference and tips the scale at 1 lb. 8 oz, or about 680 grams. at $180 a pop, it cost about ten times more than a standard NBA regulation item, but hey, whoever says vanity doesn’t cost? see how the Leather Head Naismith Style Lace Up Basketball is made in the embedded clip below.
