Back at the beginning of December, Russell Westbrook broke out his signature shoe for the first time in an NBA game against his hometown team, the Los Angeles Lakers. Talk about a special way to debut your first shoe to the world. The Why Not Zer0.1 emulates Westbrook’s competitive attitude on the court, his tendency to run at a challenge head first rather than shying away from it. Serving a dual purpose, the upcoming silhouette fits the reigning MVP’s drastic demands on the court while suiting his eccentric personal style off the court. Now, Westbrook his honoring his late high school teammate with a special colorway that is being dubbed the ‘Tribute’. This pair honors his best friend, Khelcey Barrs III, who passed away 16 years old from an enlarged heart. Westbrook has his signature sneaker dressed in their high school team colors and features a 3 in the clear sole of the shoe as a nod to Khelceys jersey number.
