With the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1, they had me at full-length Zoom Air.
While Russell Westbrook has had a signature off court sneaker, fans have been asking for an on-court sneaker for years. Finally, its going down just before All-Star Weekend.
“As a kid growing up in LA and standing in line to get other people’s shoes, you become aware of how fortunate you are to get sneakers,” Westbrook said in a statement. “To be able to sit here now and hold my own shoe is an honor.”
The Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 offers forefoot containment with a synthetic overlay atop a fused mesh upper. It also features a full-length Zoom Air unit and a compression-molded Phylon foam heel counter. Multi-directional herringbone is implemented and should offer the wearer good traction.
“My favorite part of the design process is storytelling,” said Westbrook in a statement. “Being able to tell my story through colorways and at different times during the season is a lot of fun.”
Will the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 take over as the new go-to game shoe for Jordan Brand hoopers? It’ll be interesting to see if more consumers flock to this shoe as it’s price point is very fair (the flagship Air Jordan is currently priced at a premium $185).
