Russell Westbrook’s season may be over but it was still a statistically historic season for the OKC guard.To celebrate, Jordan Brand is finally giving the people what they want — a shoe that an athlete is actually wearing.
While Westbrook may not have worn this version of the Air Jordan XXXI all season long (and his version of the shoe featured solid rubber instead of translucent), it’s still nice to see that the player and the fan aren’t so disconnected when it comes to Jordan/Nike athletes.
Sporting elephant-printed leather at the heel and colors to match OKC uniforms, these look awesome for OKC fans. Borrowing tooling from the Air Jordan XXX, this is the most unique Air Jordan XXXI build yet since it does not feature the full-length unlocked Zoom Air setup.
You’ll have a chance to grab a pair of the Air Jordan XXXI ‘Why Not?’ PE beginning this Saturday, April 29, for $185.
