Jordan Brand Debuts Russell Westbrook’s Jordan Why Not Zer0.1

After debuting the shoe on-court last night for the very-first time, Jordan Brand today officially debuts Russell Westbrook’s inaugural on-court signature shoe — the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1.

Encapsulating both his personal style and life mantra, “Why Not,” the shoe is defined by its smooth vamp tailored to meet Russ’ dynamic game. Forefoot containment is critical as Westbrook plays high on his toes and needs maximum stability. To ensure this truth, Jordan Brand worked closely with the Thunder’s equipment manager, Wilson Taylor, as Russ would wear test the shoe and Taylor would respond back with progress reports.

Russ debuted a PE edition of the “Mirror” colorway last night, which highlights both Westbrook’s likeness and Jumpman branding. Yet it’s the “2 Wy” edition that will debut at retail as it’s a greater juxtaposition of Russ’ game-changing presence both on and off the court.

Take a look at the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 below and expect the launch on January 15 for $ 125.

words // Nick DePaula:

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar and league MVP Russell Westbrook has agreed to a long-term extension with Jordan Brand that will make him the face of the Nike subsidiary well into his career.

The 10-year pact includes both on- and off-court signature sneakers, along with a Westbrook-designed signature apparel line.

Russell Westbrook Gets Air Jordan XXX1/10/10 PE Pack for His MVP Season

We all know what Jordan Brand does when one of their athletes wins a ring, but what about when they win NBA MVP? We found out today as 2016-17 NBA MVP Russell Westbrook scored a very appropriate Air Jordan XXX1/10/10 PE Pack for his accomplishments.

Playing literally and figuratively off his sensational stat line, the package is literally a triple-double as it includes three pairs pulling from his 31, 10 and 10 season long averages. It works perfectly, too, as the XXX1 proved the shoe he made history in while the AJ10 has been a PE favorite of Mr. Why Not since his early days in OKC.

While the XXX1s went live on SNKRS, our buddies at J23App pulled a preview of the fixings gifted to Russ. Would you cop this package if released at retail? Let us know in the comments section and congrats to Mr. Westbrook.

A Detailed Look at Russell Westbrook’s Air Jordan XXX1 “Why Not” PE

As the NBA regular season comes to a close tomorrow, Russell Westbrook’s historic run transitions to the postseason. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a snapshot of where he currently stands; smack-dap in the record books with 42 triple doubles and, by the estimations of many, a looming MVP trophy. Jordan Brand is celebrating his heroics by releasing what might be his best shoe to date — the Air Jordan XXX1 “Why Not” PE.

Utilizing a blend of Flyweave and leather construction, the shoes aesthetic progression pulls from Russ’ Air Jordan 3 PE first seen back in 2013. Elephant print fills much of the shoe’s rear while Oklahoma City Thunder colors finish the remainder of the body. At Westbrook’s request, Air Jordan XXX tooling resides below for heightened footing and cushioning.

Take an official look at the Air Jordan XXX1 “Why Not” PE below and calendar the April 29 Jordan Release Date.

My Journey Inside the 2016 Russell Bowl with the Miami Hurricanes and adidas AlphaBOUNCE PE

Player Exclusive sneakers represent a culture built around a team, its players, staff and more importantly the fans. These shoes are rarely ever sold to the public, so when brands like adidas create the PEs, fans and sneakerheads alike are often left lusting after the exclusivity and desire to further connect with said team or athlete. Recently, the brand with three stripes showcased the latest wave of Player Exclusives celebrating their College Football teams who earned the right to play in NCAA Bowl Games.

As a huge fan of both College Football and sneakers, I decided I wanted to bring you and everyone else into the experience that allows shoes like the adidas AlphaBounce “Miami Hurricanes” PE to be created. So, I got with adidas and said, “Hey, let’s go to the Bowl Game in Orlando and show why you guys made these PEs and make it a moment.” Their reply was, “Let’s do it!”

Take the journey with me through a series of photos as you get exclusive access behind the scenes and a sideline view of the culture that is Miami Hurricanes Football. From pre-game setup to Coach wearing Yeezys and even the raising of the championship trophy, welcome to the 2016 Russell Bowl in Orlando, Florida. Enjoy the ride!

Russell Westbook Debuts Air Jordan XXX | Kicks On Court

words // Nick DePaula:

As the headlining athlete of the Air Jordan since he joined the brand in the fall of 2013, once again Oklahoma City Thunder star guard Russell Westbrook debuted the newest game shoe on court.

The Air Jordan XXX, officially unveiled just yesterday in Chicago, hit the court on Westbrook’s size 15 feet in the White / Black / University Blue launch colorway set to release next month on February 10th.

Westbrook had himself a hell of a game for his first time out in the shoe, dropping an efficiently smooth 12 / 11 / 10 triple double in just 27 minutes of play.

One thing to mention, is that the toe’s Jumpman logo looks to be black on Russell’s pair, rather than the white Jumpman weave found on the retail pair. Altered logos for on-court brand visibility are nothing new, and a tweak we’ve seen on several pairs worn through the years by LeBron James, Stephen Curry and many other signature athletes.

While not everyone (Ex: Me) has been thrilled with the 30th edition of the Air Jordan series, how do you think they look on court, when put to the test for their intended use? Let us know in the comment section below, and on Twitter.XXX Russ 1XXX Russ 2XXX Russ 3XXX Russ 4
