At the beginning of 2018, Jordan Brand presented us with Russell Westbrook's first-ever signature sneaker, the Why Not Zer0.1. Now, nearly a year later, the Oklahoma City Thunder triple-double superstar is back to kick off 2019 with his second silhouette, the Why Not Zer0.2.

The inaugural colorway, "Future History," is a homage to colors on Westbrook's uniforms in the past and to the people that have helped him become the player he is today, including his children. "I learn just as much from the youth as I do from my mentors," he says.  The sneakers also feature his family crest on the inside of the tongue, an exposed tag with the color palette and a black blocking on the midsole for Russ to honor his late best friend, Khelcey Barrs III.

The Why Not Zer0.2 will release in men's sizes first on January 10 and in all sizes later this month on nike.com and select retailers.

Release Date: 1/10/19 (Thursday) - Men's sizes
