Russell Westbrook has always greatly valued his family. His real name is actually Russell Westbrook III. He was born on November 12th, 1988 to Russell Westbrook II and Shannon Horton. His only sibling is his younger brother, Raynard “Ray” Westbrook, who is three years younger than Russell. The Westbrook brothers have always been quite close and stick together. They both admire and support each other as much as possible, and Raynard often attends his Russell’s basketball games, cheering for him. Raynard will soon earn a PhD degree, so Russell teamed up with Jordan Brand to design this Why Not Zer0.1 colorway as a tribute to his younger brother’s achievement.
Raynard Westbrook was born on May 2nd, 1991. Unlike Russell, Raynard actually used to play football while studying at the University of Central Oklahoma. Back in 2015, Raynard earned his college diploma from the university. His college graduation had actually turned out being rather memorable and special. Russell Westbrook not only attended his younger brother’s graduation ceremony that took place in May 2015, he even went on stage to hand Raynard his diploma. Three years later, Raynard will soon be awarded with a PhD degree and Russell Westbrook is once again doing something special for his younger brother in collaboration with Jordan Brand.
Hence, this latest Why Not Zer0.1 that will be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 has been dubbed “PHD.” Overall, the uppers of the sneaker are almost entirely covered in Black, probably to mimic a graduation gown. The left and right heel tabs, insoles and tongues are mismatched, dressed up in two different Blue and Pink color schemes. Additionally, the logo of the University of Central Oklahoma can be spotted over the insoles as well. Last but not least, this iteration is equipped with all-White outsoles with a Pink-colored “Jumpman” logo underneath them. The Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 “PHD” is currently available at a retail price of $125.
