Can You Handle It: The Nike Air Jordan XXXI Why Not?

2017-05-04T15:44:37

The NIKE AIR JORDAN XXXI WHY NOT? is a team colours splashed nod of respect to Oklahoma City Thunder player Russell Westbrook.

First introduced to the market last spring, the Jordan XXXI saw designer Tate Keubris gather thirty years worth of Jumpman inspired footwear to create a new icon. Based on a stripped back and modern retooling debut of the debut 1985 model, the Jordan I, the new addition brought surefire performance and guaranteed comfort to the forefront, birthing a basketball model that excels whatever the weather.

The next XXXI drop looks to professional basketball player Russell Westbrook for inspiration, utilising his personal motto “Why Not?” as a basis for the shoe. Displaying recognisable elements from his Air Jordan III PE released in 2013, the Air Jordan XXXI is a game-ready silhouette that is at one with the hardwood.

A visual smörgåsbord of iconic Nike patterns, the Oklahoma City Thunder colours, and Westbrook’s personal branding – the upcoming shoe is an audacious addition to the shoe’s offering. Starting with a black woven mesh base at the toe box, the shoe works up into an Elephant print heel counter, with black laces nestled in eyelets that reflect Westbrook’s team colours. A sock-like fit that’s paired with cushioning from the Jordan XXX and a robust midsole, this guarantees to be a very smooth ride, with an iced translucent outsole for extra style points.

If this one is a little too out there for you, the NIKE AIR JORDAN XXXI LOW PURE MONEY offers a toned down option in the brand’s popular iced out colourway.

The NIKE AIR JORDAN XXXI WHY NOT? is set for release on SATURDAY 6 MAY. Check out the latest AIR JORDAN product at NIKE by following the banner below.
