Halloween may be behind us but the NBA season is just getting started, and new member of the Houston Rockets Russell Westbrook has some fresh footwear that he can take to the court in, thanks to the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 SE MMY. An alternate take on Westbrook’s second signature sneaker with Jordan Brand, the SE MMY (short for mummy) features an intentionally deconstructed design ethos that works perfectly with its seasonally appropriate stylings.
High-cut but lightweight, this new Why Not Zer0.2 SE’s upper features a printed graphic that shows white bandages wrapped around a ghoulish green base layer. The monstrous look is taken even further by thin tan suede overlays on the quarter and toebox, plus exposed Flywire loops to hold the laces in place. Branding is kept to a minimum with small Jumpman/Westbrook logos dispersed around the upper’s various pieces, while exposed foam detailing on the tongue/collar and a sturdy plastic heel clip finalize the shoe’s top half.
Looking lower, the midsole saves weight and cuts bulk by way of a two-piece design, with Zoom Air providing cushioning and a circular traction pattern offering grip. For a final touch of detail, the shoe’s size tag is visible through a translucent window in the heel.
Westbrook’s latest with the Jumpman is available now on Nike.com via Member Access. The retail price is set at $125 USD.
