Russell Westbrook has apparently moved pretty quickly up the Jordan Brand totem pole judging by the sneaker goodies he’s been outfitted with as of late. Over the weekend Russ posted up this flick, showing off the Air Jordan IV ‘Fire Red Suede’ that should be on its way for Fall of 2013. You’ll remember that Carmelo Anthony is the only other guy we’ve seen to date sporting the sneakers, and you’ll also remember that his pair sports a slightly different blocking on the outsole than that rendering of the retail version. It looks as if Westbrook has the PE pair as well, putting him right up there with Melo in terms of the Air Jordan exclusives.

NBA Feet: Russell Westbrook – Air Jordan XX8

On Monday, during Jordan Brand’s unveiling of the Air Jordan XX8, it was revealed that the newly signed Russell Westbrook would debut the new Jordan signature during the Tuesday-night game against the Brooklyn Nets. This development was quite the rapid escalation for Russell, who just a couple of months ago wasn’t even under the Jumpman label; however, it’s clear that Jordan Brand not only has the support of Russell, but the confidence that he can maintain the supreme reputation that the Air Jordan has forged since 1985.

Lackluster sales of the preceding Air Jordan 2012 model was partly due to an absence of an enticing on-court presence, but with Jordan Brand’s newest star sporting the kicks, will the Air Jordan XX8 fare any better? The verdict’s still out and we’ll have to wait for more developments until the sneaker officially releases in mid-February, so in the mean-time, take a look at the debut of the Air Jordan XX8 on Russell Westbrook and stay tuned to Sneaker News for all your Air Jordan 28 updates.

Today’s official unveiling of the Air Jordan XX8 was a top secret event by all accounts, with industry folks tight lipped about what exactly the sneaker media should expect going into their exclusive set up in midtown Manhattan today. As folks from the blogosphere filtered into the dimly lit room, things became more and more apparent. Jordan Brand president Larry Miller kicked things off, bringing out the one and only Spike Lee to get things started, with Carmelo Anthony eventually taking to the stage as well to talk the game of hoops with Mars Blackmon himself. After that portion wrapped up, attendees were ushered upstairs via freight elevator to see what Jordan Brand had in store next.¬†Once the crowd was made to converge, following the endless ogling of the Air Jordan ‘Blackout Collection’ display, a projection played on the walls of the room, the massive doors at the center broke away, and there it was: the Air Jordan XX8.¬†Spike Lee again picked up the narrative from there, rapping with Air Jordan architect and sneaker design guru Tinker Hatfield along with project designer Josh Heard about the new model.
