Westbrook dons "Equality" Why Not Zer0.2 for MLK Day.
The NBA's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day slate of games will kickoff today at 12:30 pm ET, featuring Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
In honor of the occasion, Westbrook is set to debut a special "Equality" colorway of his second signature sneaker, the Jordan Westbrook Why Not Zer0.2. Check out images of the kicks from today's pre-game warmup in the posts embedded below.
Of course, Westbrook isn't the only NBA star who will be lacing up special edition sneakers today. His teammate, Paul George, will also be rocking a "BHM" colorway of his Nike PG3 sneaker as part of the brand's Black History Month collection.
According to Nike, this year's BHM collection was inspired by an assortment of national African patterns, brought together onto modernized prints in a theme of Afro-futurism in sport.
