As with previous iterations of the budget-friendlier line or its “Why Not?” Zer0 counterpart, the stylegowhere.com forthcoming pair indulges in a tonal black arrangement. Synthetic overlays and mesh bases feature different textures, which deliver some variety to the monochromatic take, but the hits of white that take over Jumpman branding, exposed zig-zag stitching and pull tabs at the heel steal the spotlight. Underfoot, sole units forego any “yin-and-yang” color palette in favor of a triple-black aesthetic sure to pair well with any hoops-ready outfit up-top.
At a glance, the lower-priced Jordan Shoes Black silhouette resembles the new “Why Not?” Zer0.4, specifically in the “Family” colorway. The mixed-materials upper, however, features a less-streamlined aesthetic, as well as simpler performance-oriented design details. The synthetic overlays and accents throughout the midfoot and heel contrast the predominantly “Black” surroundings with their “Metallic Gold” finish, which also takes over Westbrook’s logo on the de-coupled outsole. Tread boasts an aggressive herringbone pattern suitable for dynamic play styles, and sits underneath forefoot Zoom Air cushioning.
The Jordan Westbrook One Take II White/Black/Wolf Grey model’s breathable mesh base sets the stage for a bevy of tones with its white makeup. Overlays across the upper partake in shades of red, neon green and blue, while details across the heel boast an abstract pattern. Westbrook’s hoops-ready shoes feature a white midsole complemented by a herringbone-patterned outsole dipped in a rainbow palette, an appropriate design choice given Brodie’s flair.
Breathable, lightweight mesh bases indulge in a white tone that sets the stage for the Hot Sale shades of red and black that appear throughout the upper. The lacing system boasts a bold scarlet hue that’s dominated the Air Jordan lineage; construction at the heel, exposed zig-zag stitching and tooling underfoot also partakes in the stark contrasting color. Black enters the mix throughout the tongue an rear, as well as throughout the inner lining. Westbrook’s mid-top silhouette features a white midsole and ice blue outsole, which notes encapsulated Zoom Air cushioning at the forefoot.
