When we learned that Jordan Brand would be blessing Russell Westbrook with his own signature sneaker- the Jordan Westbrook 0- this is not at all what we were expecting.
Instead of a technologically advanced performance basketball sneaker, we are instead given this lifestyle model which features a premium upper, vulcanized outsole and D-ring eyelets. According to catalog scans, the Westbrook 0 won't be launching until October, so there's still time for these to grow on you.
Having said that, we won't be surprised when these start showing up on clearance racks alongside the rest of the 'Lifestyle' signature sneakers.
Hopefully, Jordan Brand won't limit one of their most explosive, and entertaining, athletes to mediocre lifestyle sneakers.
