Russell Westbrook has come a long way since signing with Jordan Brand back over six years ago. The do-it-all backcourt dynamo first joined the roster at the start of the 2012 season, but things have really accelerated over the last year after the former MVP signed a massive decade-long deal to stay with the Jumpman. Since that extension, he dropped a signature shoe as well as two off-the-court lifestyle silhouettes, and he’s at the cusp of launching his second in-game model called the Why Not Zer0.2. These official images reveal a highly deconstructed approach to the model as nearly each sector of the build can be distinguished with different materials, with the mid-foot panel, exterior heel, and exposed tags/labels lending to the aesthetic. Even the sole is comprised of two separate pieces, bridged together by an exposed mid-foot plate. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the design is the tapered heel, reminiscent of Nike’s speedy Zoom Fly running footwear series, and diamond-etched padding on the emphatic ankle padding. Retailers overseas currently have these releasing on January 2nd, 2019, so stay tuned for updates on a U.S. drop date.
