#kixspotted Jordan Why Not 0.2
I must say, that the overall look is different from the Why Not 0.1 which was Russell Westbrook's debut signature shoe. This time around, it looks like it's more influenced with some fashion shoes that have a sporty look to it. For me, it looks like one of those Nike collabs with Off-White designer Virgil Abloh in terms of layers or overlays which gives that deconstructed look. To be honest, I like it just because seeing a straight up one-piece uppers are starting to look boring because every brand has their own silhouette that have it. The overlays used here have functions aside from aesthetics so it isn't much of a bother like the overlays on the midfoot which also act as reinforcement structure on there. The upper is made up of textile of various materials and is kinda thick so durability wouldn't be much of a concern in the upper material. Last year's model features a full-length Zoom Air cushion which I love. This year, they went on a different route with a large-volume Zoom Air in the forefoot together with a nice phylon foam midsole. As long as the foam carrier isn't blocky then it would be nice since the midsole is decoupled (forefoot and midfoot is separated). There are TPU structures in the midfoot underneath in a form of a spring plate which isn't new to Jordan Brand as well as an extrnal heel counter. The outsole is made up of solid rubber and the traction pattern is different from last year which is basically herringbone. This time it is made up of semi-circles and I really don't have an idea how it would perform. In terms of aesthetics, I like the tag seen on the side which is a swatch of colors used on this particular colorway (Future History). Even the size placement is different from its usual location, as it is located underneath the heel area of the shoe. Overall it looks nice and very tempting to cop since I would like to maybe do a comparison with last year's model. These are out now at various Nike Park stores and retails for Php 6,295.
