For several years now, Russell Westbrook has been Jordan Brand’s leading athlete and after signing a 10-year extension with the company back in September 2017, he also became the face of the brand. Yet, with the exception of the Jordan Westbrook shoes, Russell did not have his own basketball signature sneaker until last year. However, that has changed now that Jordan Brand introduced the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 earlier this month. Russell’s first signature model from Jordan Brand has been designed to be as competitive as he tends to be on the court. Since it has already debuted, apparently more Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 colorways are on their way.
The first colorway of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 to join this month’s Jordan releases 2018 was dubbed “Mirror Image.” The nickname refers to the fact that Russell has a similar passion for basketball and his “relentless drive” that Michael Jordan once had. The Why Not Zer0.1 can be regarded as both a performance and lifestyle sneaker. This futuristic sneaker has been designed to be impressively lightweight because of its mesh uppers, while it is equipped with a full-length Zoom Air unit in each sole and an internal lace system that includes a toggle inspired by that of the Air Jordan 6.
As sneakerheads may already know, a colorway of Russell Westbrook’s brand new signature sneaker is a part of Jordan Brand’s Spring Jordan releases 2018. Apart from this one, two other colorways of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 have surfaced and at least one of them might end up hitting the shelves. As can be seen, one is dressed up in the University of North Carolina color scheme since it is a PE for the Tar Heels. The other might potentially be a GS-exclusive iteration; it is dressed up almost entirely in an Orange-like hue with Blue-colored detailing throughout and all-White-colored soles.
The Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 “Mirror Image” made its retail debut on January 15th, 2018. The colorway that is a part of Jordan Brand’s Spring 2018 Retro Collection is scheduled to arrive at retailers on February 15th. Of course, the PE iteration is likely not going to be available to the general public, but the other one may hit the shelves, although only small-footed sneakerheads may end up rocking it.
