I know one thing: it’s about time Russell Westbrook got a signature shoe that you can wear on the court.
I’ve been anticipating this shoe for a while now, since way back when Jordan Brand was deciding whether to call this shoe the Why Not Zer0.1 or Jordan Fly Next.
When the first leaked images surfaced, I was like oh baby these better look exactly like the picture, because I thought the photos were fire — it was like love at first sight.
The Air Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 utilizes a Multi-Directional herringbone traction pattern, which should be a beast out on the court. The upper is comprised of a one-piece mesh inner sleeve with a synthetic fuse overlay along the forefoot.
The heel area features a Pylon foam overlay that resembles the back of the Air Jordan 15. The heel portion is by far my favorite part of the shoe; this area is too sick. As far as the cushioning, the Why Not Zer0.1 features full-length Zoom.
Overall, I think the Air Jordan why Not Zer0.1 will perform nicely on the hardwood, but only time will tell. How do you all feel about Russell’s new signature shoe? Do you think it will be a beastly shoe for the courts, or will it flop? Let us know in the comment section below.
The ‘Mirror Image’ Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 launches January 15 in limited quantities, followed by the ‘2-Way’ colorway on February 15. Retail is set at $125.
