As the man holding down Jordan Brand’s current signature silhouette, that would be the Air Jordan XX8 SE, you gotta assume that Russell Westbrook can have some player exclusive sneakers crafted at his demand. It should come as no surprise then that he decided to use his Air Jordan footwear to pay tribute to his mom on her birthday. Pictured is an otherwise unassuming pair of the aforementioned sneaker that features a “Happy B-day Mom” hit underneath the icy outsole and some personal sharpie touches from Russ on the toes. See them in better detail below and watch for what’s next from the man’s sneaker rotation right here.
