It isn’t April 1 yet, so we assume this isn’t a joke, but there seems to be an Air Jordan XXXI Russell Westbrook ‘Why Not?’ PE releasing at the end of April.
If you’ve been paying attention to Russell Westbrook’s feet then you already know that he’s been wearing a modified version of the Air Jordan XXXI that fans have dubbed the 30.5. He’s also been seen wearing a pair of Air Jordan 3 PEs made up in OKC colors using a black/cement Air Jordan 3 base. Blending the best of both, it looks like this ‘Why Not?’ edition of the Air Jordan XXXI will be the first PE to release of the shoe.
I can’t recall seeing Westbrook wear this exact pair on-court so he might not have done so just yet (perhaps he’s holding off for this year’s Playoffs). However, the shoe utilizes elephant print at the heel, Flyweave at the midfoot and forefoot, along with re-used tooling from the Air Jordan XXX — complete with galaxy outrigger print and all. The outsole will feature “Why” and “Not” to keep with the “Why Not?” theme Westbrook has been pushing.
Rumor has it that these are scheduled to release on April 29 and there has been no price given at this time. Hopefully, they’ll be the same price as the other Air Jordan XXXI colorways which are listed at $185.
Let us know what you think of this Air Jordan XXXI PE and if you’d be interested in grabbing a pair once released.
