Russell Westbrook and Jordan Brand plan to expand on Brodie’s signature “Why Not?” series with the sequel to the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1, the Why Not Zer0.2.
One of the pairs that will be arriving first comes dressed in a Multi-Color, Total Crimson, and Sail color scheme. The basketball shoe is built with a mesh upper, textured heel unit, and new lacing system. But the most unique new detail is its outsole, which displays its size tag on the heel area.

UPDATE: Jordan Brand has officially introduced Russell Westbrook’s Jordan Why Not Zer0.2. The lead colorway, “Future History,” was inspired by Westbrook looking back on his youth, including the various team colors he’s worn since high school. The shoe is also an ode to today’s youth, who will become our future leaders.
The “Future History” color-blocking and materials highlight the WN0.2’s performance qualities. There’s a grid-like, protective texture on the tongue and collar, a debossed pattern on the quarter (with hidden “Why Not” logos), a woven finish on the midfoot strap, breathable mesh on the forefoot, and injected TPU for the heel counter. The outsole has concentric circle patterns for multi-directional traction and references Westbrook’s number, 0. It also has a diagram of a “perfect strike” in bowling, a nod to one of Westbrook’s favorite off-court activities, as well as the size tag that’s typically inside the shoe.
At the heel of the left shoe, an external tag highlights the “Future History” color palette seen throughout the vibrant shoe. This external tag will also be on future colorways of Westbrook’s WN0.2, which focus on important people in Westbrook’s life, including his family and fans.
Each shoe has a black patch on the medial midsole for Westbrook’s written tribute to his late friend, KB3. The heel tabs of each shoe also have Westbrook’s signature, while the left heel has the Westbrook logo, the right heel has the Jumpman logo, and both shoes have his family crest on the interior of each tongue.
The “Future History” Why Not Zer0.2 will release on January 10th in men’s sizing and in all sizes later on in the month.
UPDATE: Nike releases official photos of Russell Westbrook’s Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 that is currently set to release overseas on January 2nd.
