Russell Westbrook Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 "Nintendo Game Boy" PE

After revealing a "Super Soaker" version of the Why Not Zer0.2, @reconbeatlab now gives us a first look at a "Nintendo Game Boy" version of the sneaker. The sneakers channel the retro gaming device with a grey and white colorway and hits of red for detailing finished off by a green panel to represent the screen. The box is designed to physically look like a Game Boy. These will most likely remain a PE for Westbrook but maybe Jordan Brand will bless the general public.
