Announced as part of the Jordan Brand's roster of athletes last October, Russell Westbrook has had the distinct honor of being the lead for the soon-to-launch Air Jordan XX8. Not only did Russell debut the new model, but he'll be wearing a "Stealth" colorway in the All-Star Game and closed out the first half of the season tonight in an 'OKC' Player Exclusive.
Westbrook's PE is white-based with black along the heel counter and midsole. OKC-inspired orange and blue accents appear on the laces, zippers, mismatched inner booties and outsoles. Should the Jordan Brand drop this Thunder-flavored PE?
Despite Oklahoma City's 110-100 loss to the Miami Heat, Russy turned in a solid performance wearing his new PEs. The All-Star put up 26 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds in defeat.
A few shots of Westbrook wearing his 'OKC' Air Jordan XX8 PE below.
