On Christmas Date, Jordan Brand revealed Russell Westbrook’s next signature shoe, the Jordan “Why Not?” .5, which he debuted against the Brooklyn Nets.
The lead colorway dubbed, “Inner City”, was designed in collaboration with Westbrook’s fashion label, Honor the Gift. It celebrates his Los Angeles roots and how self-belief can help anyone reach their dreams. For this model, Jordan Brand dropped the “Zer0” portion of its name that was used his previous signature shoes.
Designed to look a trail running shoe with its rugged utility look, the “Why Not?” .5 features a translucent material on the upper to complement Westbrook’s quick movements, while midfoot bands, an external heel counter, and webbing all work together to keep his foot in place. Added design details include a large-volume Zoom Air unit at the forefoot of the midsole for energy return atop a trail-inspired outsole for maximum traction.
To go along with this release, Westbrook also designed matching apparel that includes a jacket, hoodie, t-shirt, and tearaway pants.
