On Wednesday night Russell Westbrook debuted his signature shoe the Why Not Zer0.1 against the Los Angeles Lakers. For Westbrook, this is just one of the rewards after he became the MVP of the NBA last year.

The Why Not Zer0.1 was “crafted for the dynamic and personality of the reigning MVP and fashion king. It features a fused mesh upper, smooth vamp cover, full-length Zoom Air unit and compression-molded pylon foam piece engineered for flight.”

The on-court debut is a PE version of the “Mirror Image” colorway. This is a style that helps display Westbrook’s desire to tell personal stories through colorways. On the left shoe there is cut out images to represent Michael Jordan and on the right the images represent Westbrook.

Now Westbrook is a step even closer to gaining popularity in terms of the fans. He joins other great players that have have been blessed with getting their own shoe like Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Michael Jordan.

Westbrook has earned this right to get his own shoe. Coming out of high school he was not heavily recruited and it took midway through his sophomore year for him to gain recognition in draft circles. Now he is the leader of the OKC Thunder and their franchise player.

Westbrook was wearing a “Mirror Image” PE version of his shoes. A similar colorway is releasing in limited quantities on Jan. 15th. The “2-Way” colorway releases February 15th

Westbrook had 20 points, 12 assists and six rebounds in the debut of his sneakers against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Oklahoma City Thunder won the game with a score of 133-96.

The 12-time All-Star already has three championships is ready to walk away from the game. Wade announced his return in video titled “One Last Dance.”

“This decision is bigger than the game of basketball,” said the soon to be 37-year-old. “This decision don’t have nothing to do with the talent I have in my body. Yeah, I’m not as quick as I used to be. Yeah, I don’t jump as high as I used to. Yeah, I don’t. Yeah, I don’t. Yeah, I don’t.

“A lot of you guys see me is as a three-time champion, a 12-time All-Star, an Olympic gold medalist, y’all didn’t see that kid that no one [saw] because he was small, because he couldn’t shoot as good as everybody else,” he said. “Y’all didn’t see the grind. Y’all didn’t see the tears.”

“I still see a player who can contribute heavily if he really wants to,” Heat president Pat Riley said to reporters in July. “If he plays, he’s going to want to do that. We don’t want him back as a place-mat holder or somebody who’s going to be a veteran in the locker room. Dwyane is a great player, a great talent. He’s not the same guy he was in 2006, but he can be a very good player for us and can make a big difference for us. We want him back as a guy that realizes if this is going to be his last year or whatever, we want this to be his best year ever.”
