After its debut last month, Russell Westbrook’s Why Not Zer0.2 will join February’s Air Jordan releases 2019 in an “All-Star” colorway. The very first colorway of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 was dubbed “Future History,” which became available on January 10th, 2019 at a price of $125. After the multi-colored and vibrant “Future History,” the next iteration of the Why Not Zer0.2 that hit the shelves was relatively plain, dressed up in just Black and White, and was dubbed “The Family.” However, the upcoming “All-Star” colorway of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 is by far the most multi-colored and vibrant of them all to date.
After its original debut 19 years ago, the Air Jordan 5 “Laney” has been redesigned to join this year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Ever since originally made its retail debut on May 10th, 2000 at a price of $120, it is the only colorway to have been inspired by the Emsley A. Laney High School, where Michael Jordan once studied and played basketball. Thirteen years later, Jordan Brand re–released the Air Jordan 5 “Laney” and it was slightly different then. The “Air Jordan” branding under the tongues featured different hues, “Jumpman” logo on its heels were Black rather than Blue, and the lace locks were more colorful.
Some of the earlier Air Jordan releases 2019 also included Russell Westbrook‘s debuting second signature model, the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2. The Why Not Zer0.2 was first seen back in December 2018 when some leaked photos were shared by @nikeswoosh.ph on Instagram. As 2019 begun, one of the first things that Jordan Brand did was officially unveil the Why Not Zer0.2 on January 1st. Not only that, Russell Westbrook’s second signature sneaker model made its retail debut in full family sizes on January 10th, 2019. Its debuting colorway consisted of multiple hues, such as Black, Orange, shades of Blue, Red, and Sail, which covered its soles.
Last year, it was Jordan Brand that released a “Chinese New Year” Pack commemorating the beginning of the Year of the Rooster. The pack consisted of special colorways of the Air Jordan 6 and the Air Jordan 32 Low. Both models featured nearly all–Black uppers with firework and traditional floral patterns embroidered onto them. While there was no collection from Nike, an Air Foamposite One “Chinese New Year” colorway was released back in February 2018. While its color scheme was different, it also featured similar firework graphics over its Foam shell uppers. For the 2019 “Chinese New Year” Pack, Nike has actually teamed up with both Converse and Jordan Brand.
