Detailed Images of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 ‘2
Russell Westbrook finally has a signature shoe and it seems like people are eagerly awaiting the release of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1.
Featuring full-length Zoom Air and retailing for $125 , the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 might be the most anticipated on-court model from Jordan Brand of the year.
Possibly drawing inspiration from the past, the design of the Zer0.1 looks like it was pulled straight from the year 2000. A mesh internal bootie with synthetic overlays heat-welded onto the build is modern, but the giant heel counter comprised of foam takes us back to the Air Jordan 15.
We’ve been told that the shoe is hard to get on, which we figured, but it’s also super comfortable once on. Not that anyone needed to be any more excited than they already might be, but that news made me a little more giddy.
On a scale of 1-10, how excited are you to try out Russell Westbrook’s Why Not Zer0.1? Let us know.
traction looks awful, but besides that the shoe looks great nice retro 18-22 feel
I hope these are dope performers, cause my favorite player getting a sig = day one cop
A 9 until I know how they fit. I’m trying to get the Mirror Image colorway, but I don’t know which size to purchase.
they really remind me of westbrook for some reason. nothing to do with him getting a sig. cant seem to put a finger on it
A 9, because of ventilation and fit doubts, but these are sexy
Intriguing. Looking forward to the performance review. I really don’t like straps, so I’d consider cutting the ankle strap if the shoes perform well without them.
These are so fire to me, not sure if it’s the color blocking or just the fact they’re Russ’ but so long as the fit/lockdown is good I see myself grabbing multiples of these. Traction, cushion and aesthetics are so on point.
10… Really looking forward to checking how the full zoom is on these. And will probably never be able to get over the $125 tag. . Full. Zoom. Insane
I’m very excited. I haven’t bought a new hoop shoe since the Adidas CE 2017 but I’m ready to move on back to zoom. I’d have to say my anticipation is a 9 out of 10. They look stable and incredibly durable, I want to put some real hours in on these.
Traction looks like a winner to me from the released images. And watching Russ play in them, he didn’t seem to be slipping out or compensating. They seem to be nubs like the cilia traction on the Rose 1/1.5s. 125 for full length zoom AND good traction…SOLD!!!
I’m just waiting for someone to get on youtube and remove that shroud so we can see what they might hoop like without it like the Kobe XI ALT or the Harden Vol. 1 without the toe cap.
depending how they look in person, I just might consider them. if they look cheapish, I’d pass on them.
Yeah Russ looks good playing in them. I haven’t watched every game since he debuted them, but it seems he hasn’t switched out of them yet. 2018 Men’s Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 2-Way Basketball Shoes Which to me says something, because he strikes me as the type of player to keep it real and shelve the shook if they’re not up to par… I gotta have ’em!

Jordan Brand Officially Unveils Russell Westbrook’s First Signature Sneaker The Jordan Why Not Zer0.1
With the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1, they had me at full-length Zoom Air.
While Russell Westbrook has had a signature off court sneaker, fans have been asking for an on-court sneaker for years. Finally, its going down just before All-Star Weekend.
“As a kid growing up in LA and standing in line to get other people’s shoes, you become aware of how fortunate you are to get sneakers,” Westbrook said in a statement. “To be able to sit here now and hold my own shoe is an honor.”
The Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 offers forefoot containment with a synthetic overlay atop a fused mesh upper. It also features a full-length Zoom Air unit and a compression-molded Phylon foam heel counter. Multi-directional herringbone is implemented and should offer the wearer good traction.
“My favorite part of the design process is storytelling,” said Westbrook in a statement. “Being able to tell my story through colorways and at different times during the season is a lot of fun.”
Will the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 take over as the new go-to game shoe for Jordan Brand hoopers? It’ll be interesting to see if more consumers flock to this shoe as it’s price point is very fair .
Share your thoughts below in the comment section and stay tuned for an upcoming performance review.
These decisions further confuse me when I read that the retro Pro Strong has jack and is 140. For WHAT?!
They didn’t just have me at full length zoom air. They also had me at $125. Shoes look definitely futuristic.
Full length zoom? $125?.. “What the f***”… well, “Why not?” ?
$125 for full lenght zoom air and a really cool design??? Time to quote Philip J Fry…shut up and take my money!!!
To quote Randy Jackson…”That’s a no for me dawg”
Just saw the YouTube video, thanks for the mention! To clarify, it’s the bottom loaded zoom and the price. Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Low Bred Black/Gym Red-Black On Sale 125 is great, but I can get some janoski Nikes for less with full length zoom. Just saying.
HANS GET THE FLAMMENWERFER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THESE ARE SO FIRE
I’m confused I thought Russ doesn’t like full-length Zoom set-up like the Jordan 31. Because it was not as flexible and these don’t look flexible. But for $125 if Russ doesn’t wear them I’ll still buy them.
aside from the flexibility, he didn’t like the wobbly feeling because of the protruded full length zoom, and he didn’t like the toe box on the 32. It would be bad if he doesn’t wear his own sig shoes.
Whole package has so much appeal. Can’t wait for the reviews to see how it pans out. A grey/black pair would be fire.
Big fan of Russ, would def get a pair when they black it out
It doesn’t bother me the bulky look, i kinda like it but the print is a bit off.
FIRE!!! Hope they perform well, otherwise these would sit on shelves
FIRE!!! Hope they’re excellent performers too, or they might just sit on shelves
Hmm interesting, with this whole season seeing Russ in the 28- 30 all having the same forefoot set up I’m surprised he’s going with this. I wonder how much he really plays in them since he doesn’t really even wear his 32 PE version. I like the Black and white colorway though and can’t wait for the review!
This could FINALLY be a shoe that actually fulfills my needs as a big man: lots of impact protection AND lots of support. D Rose line is the only one that really delivers that for an acceptable price, imho. -pac
Those look like ankle rollers, I hate shoes that have the narrow heel bottom with no outrigger. These also look bulky, heavy, clunky, not breathable and they also look like the Eddie Jones Swift 6’s.
looking at it, it does worry me since those narrow heel can be a real dealbreaker for getting these. too bad considering these could be the first “why nots” that I would actually buy despite not liking WestBrook and the stupid “why not” slogan, the logo looks dope though. anyway, aside from the narrow heel, it does seem like the upper could be made up of the old fuse material which I abandoned years ago. they just felt cheap and uncomfortable.
