Russell Westbrook takes pride in his unique style. Sometimes, that style includes pulling an iguana on a leash.
Jordan Brand unveiled the Thunder star's second signature off-court shoe design, the Westbrook 0.2, Friday. The sneaker officially launches to the public Saturday, iguana not included.
"The design team and I took global inspiration for the shoe and wanted to create a style that could be worn by kids and adults," Westbrook says. "For the Westbrook 0.2, I wanted a higher silhouette with a raw design that you could pair with different materials and textures on the shoe."
For the time being, Westbrook has a lifestyle shoe line, not a basketball sneaker line, with Jordan Brand. Westbrook released his first Jordan shoe, the Westbrook 0, in summer 2015. The point guard has also collaborated with the brand on shirts, sweatshirts and pants.
The Westbrook 0.2 includes both leather and suede, featuring an Air Jordan VI-inspired upper and Air Jordan I KO tooling. Westbrook's signature logo is on the outer tongue, with his catchphrase, "Why Not?" on the inside. Jordan Brand is teasing three Westbrook 0.2 colorways in black/camouflage, white and black/red. The black/camo is available Saturday.
"Fashion is a passion I'll continue pursuing once I'm done playing," Westbrook says. "It's a great honor to work with the brand again on creating my second signature design."
Westbrook also has partnerships with True Religion, PepsiCo, Kings And Jaxs and Barneys. He has his own independent sunglasses line called Westbrook Frames.
