Russell Westbrook is one of the NBA’s top talents, he’s only 24, just approaching his prime, and he plays for a contender that has bright and trendy colors. That résumé checks all the boxes for Ideal Jordan Brand Flagship Sneaker Ambassador. RW debuted the Air Jordan XX8 six months ago effectively as the shoe’s personification; you could say both are quick, versatile, performance-driven, and impact every game they’re in one way or another. Fitting then that the OKC point guard provides inspiration for Jordan Brand’s latest round of two-eights. Three pairs on the slate — a Photo Blue/White-Black “Why Not?” calling Russell’s tagline, a Photo Blue/White-Black sort of camo print, and a White/Black-Photo Blue “OKC Home” look that he broke out back in mid-February.
