As seen on the feet of superstar point guard Russell Westbrook during his triple-double performance in a Game 7 win against the Memphis Grizzlies, we bring a closer look at the Air Jordan XX9 “Why Not?”. Sporting the Thunder’s home colorway, its Flightweave upper features a blue elephant print at its forefoot, midfoot and heel with orange outlines, and a white base. The moniker “Why Not?” is a tribute to Westbrook’s youth organization dedicated to supporting community-based education and family service programs. Whether or not this player edition model will ever see the retail floor, we remain very anxious for the September release of the Air Jordan XX9.
