Russell Westbrook’s latest Jordan Brand signature sneaker, the Why Not .5, has been officially unveiled.

The sneaker builds on previous iterations of the line, taking inspiration from trail-running shoes to give the sneaker a rugged look. The asymmetric lines and contrasting colors that have become a hallmark of the Why Not? series, are present in Westbrook’s fifth signature shoe as well.

According to Jordan Brand, the “Inner City” colorway was designed in collaboration with Westbrook’s fashion label, Honor the Gift. It celebrates the player’s LA roots and how self-belief is central to achieving one’s dreams. The sneaker arrives alongside a range of matching apparel, including a jacket, hoodie, T-shirt, and tearaway pants.

Look for the entire collection to drop at some point in Spring 2022. Until then. check it out above.
