Russell Westbrook’s Why Not Zer0.2 May Have Just Leaked

The highly anticipated sequel to the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 may have just leaked online.

Russell Westbrook’s first signature sneaker with Jordan Brand was a beast on-court. Actually, it was one of the best basketball shoes that released in 2018.

It looks as if the retailers in the Philippines have received shipments of the upcoming second version dubbed the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2.

Tech specs are currently unknown, but the leaked images give us an indication on what the primary focus was — traction and lockdown. The outsole features a “0” traction pattern that should work well on-court. I assume the shoe features the same Zoom Air unit that was used on the Air Jordan 33. Tooling looks to be decoupled — something Westbrook loved on the Air Jordan XX8 SE.

The placement of the size tag is… interesting. It’s weird and something nobody would have thought about doing which fits Westbrook’s personality perfectly.

There are also plenty of overlays to keep the foot locked in while the build looks to be mesh.

There is no word on when the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 is releasing, but it may be sooner than we think. It could drop possibly around January or February for the NBA All-Star Weekend.

Let us know your thoughts on what could be the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 and if you’re as excited as we are to try out the second version of Westbrook’s signature shoe.

  1. I have been playing in the reebok floatride run and it performs really well. It did come out last year but it is a very good runner and also surprisingly good at basketball. You should do a review on it. I got mine for $60.

  2. I’m intrigued by the outsole. The circles are very promising if they are stiff enough. I like the W cut out in the middle. And I wonder what you feel of the square under your heel that is so deep. Sounds like a job for Nightwing to find out 🙂

  3. That tag placement is pretty sweet. The collar and inner bootie and padding look a lot like the pg2. Even had a little lockdown won’t on the laces like them it seems. I think this could be a pretty good looking shoe in the right colorways and looks better than the .1’s

  4. Aesthetically, these look pretty decent. Its like the new jordan without all the lacing stuff. I really like that the back doesn’t have that humongous foam thing going all the way up. That thing was very clunky when i tried them on. I like the ankle pillows, that theres no shroud, and the decoupled outsole. I’ve never tried a decoupled, so it should be interesting.

  5. Absolutely WACK compared to the 0.1. I realllllyyyy hope these turn out good but I definitely liked the 0.1 materials and style better.

  6. I would guess these have similar cushion setup like the AJ 32. looks whack but I’m not a fan of the upper material. looks cheapish.
