We have and an in-hand look at Russell Westbrook’s latest signature shoe — the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2.
A surprise hit in 2018, the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 was a beast on the court — just like Brodie himself.
However, the Why Not Zer0.1 was originally a team shoe that was rebranded prior to its release to be Westbrook’s signature shoe. That makes the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 the first basketball shoe specifically designed for Westbrook — making it even more intriguing that it already is.
There is a lot going on with the shoe visually but if you just focus on the tech specs, they’ve incorporated a lot of Russ’ personal favorite attributes from models he’s worn in the past. There’s a focus on forefoot cushion with the implementation of Unlocked Zoom Air — leaving only Injected Phylon in the heel (which feels plush for anyone wondering). Decoupling the tooling was a favorite feature of mine in the Air Jordan 28-30 and Westbrook loves the mobility this setup brings to the table, so they’ve redesigned it with a bit more structure and support. Lockdown panels/straps are at the forefoot, midfoot and even the rear (the cloak offers additional rear lockdown).
Let’s not forget about the traction: so far during our testing, it’s been awesome.
We hope you enjoy the detailed look and review on the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2. Feel free to leave your thoughts on them below in the comment section and stay tuned for the performance review in the coming weeks.
