Russell Westbrook is doing his fashion thing at Paris Fashion Week while sporting his latest off court signature sneaker: the Westbrook 0.3.
It’s no surprise that his latest sneaker matches the checkerboard pattern so often used by Off-White founder Virgil Abloh, now the artistic director of Louis Vitton’s menswear. The Westbrook 0.3 is inspired by Brodie’s SoCal roots and pays homage to the 1980s skateboard culture that adopted the Air Jordan 1, according to Nike.
The lead colorway of the Westbrook 0.3 (pictured above) uses an abstracted RW logo to mirror the dazzle camo design. The shoe is meant to embody Westbrook’s unpredictable style on and off the hardwood, and it will see both super loud and classic colorways.
“Why Not?” is the mantra that Westbrook has lived by for years, and now, he has translated it into the Why Not? Floral Apparel Collection. Art directed by Westbrook, the collection is a fashion-forward series of garments that combine striking floral prints taken from Los Angeles with early ’90s All-Star uniform graphics. The pieces are constructed from premium heavyweight fabrics handpicked by Westbrook and Oklahoma’s floral emblem, mistletoe, makes an appearance as a final flourish.
While Nike unveiled the Westbrook 0.3 and the Why Not? Floral Apparel Collection, it has not announced any pricing or release information. We’ll be sure to update you when we know more.
