Introducing Westbrook's second signature sneaker.
Jordan Brand is ringing in the new year with a fresh new silhouette for OKC Thunder All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook, dubbed the Why Not Zer0.2.
According to Nike, Westbrook's second signature performance sneaker is a reflection of this: The design may seem chaotic, but Westbrook planned every element of it with a specific purpose in mind.
The first colorway of the Why Not Zer0.2, dubbed “Future History,” features a vibrant color-blocking, with each color referencing a uniform that has helped define Westbrook's career.
"Every colorway has a meaning behind it that is special to me," says Westbrook. "With the Why Not Zer0.2, I wanted to take that storytelling to the next level with an exposed tag that helps illustrate the meaning behind the colors used."
Additionally, Westbrook also used a black block on the midsole to honor late best friend, Khelcey Barrs III.
"It’s become a tradition for me to honor Khelcey by writing 'KBIII' on my game shoes. Each colorway of the WhyNotZer0.2 will have a designated area for me to write that on. I want people who wear my shoe to understand that playing with a purpose bigger than yourself is important," says Westbrook.
The Why Not Zer0.2 releases in men’s sizes globally on January 10 and in all sizes later this month.
