Russell Westbrook’s approach to the game can be described with words like gritty, unrelenting, and vicious. The triple-double machine still attacks the rim like it owes him money, barely missing a step after a dozen seasons in the league. In honor of its athlete, Jordan Brand and tapped Converse for a two-pair pack that recognizes Westbrook’s style of play on his two favorite silhouettes – the Air Jordan 16 and Converse Chuck 70. Both shoes are inspired by the public hoops proving grouds – the street-ball courts across inner cities that have bred the elite stars of the game. The Air Jordan 16, for example, features chain-link detailing on the leather shroud – a nod to the chain nets. The Chuck 70 is covered in cracked white leather, mimicking the worn paint on the concrete.
Additionally, there’s a fashionable edge as both shoes are built with a range of materials such as leather and satin. The choice of materials draws back to roll-styled leather jackets that Westbrook enjoys wearing.
The Jordan x Converse “Why Not?” Pack will release on October 2nd on SNKRS and SNEAKRS.
