A $12,900 Designer Basketball? It Exists

It's a bummer Kanye's birthday was back in June, because we just found the perfect present for Kim to get him...
Meet the Herm├Ęs basketball, the $12,900 hand-stitched ball officially unveiled today in celebration of the luxury brand's grand opening of its new Beverly Hills store. Ditching the company's own classic orange (which is ironically pretty similar to the color of an official NBA Spalding ball), the French fashion house went with a swimming-pool blue. And, even though Hermes U.S. CEO Robert Chavez asserts the ball "certainly can be used for play," we wouldn't want this guy to end up in your neighbor's yard.
As for Kanye, there's always anniversaries, right? (The Hollywood Reporter)
