Summary of 6 Expert Reviews:
Russel Westbrook's first signature sneaker is a hit with shoe reviewers. The full-length Zoom cushioning, usually reserved for much more expensive shoes, is responsive, comfortable and offers great impact protection for explosive players. The fit and support work very well and give you the stability needed for quick moves. Traction is great on clean courts but you will need to wipe a lot on dustier courts. At only $125, this is a great first release for Russel Westbrooks signature line and offers amazing bang for the buck.

Expert Reviews of the Jordan Why Not Zero.1:

9.4
The Sole Brothers
The full-length zoom setup is worth the $125 alone. A great big-man shoe as the cushion is amazing!

Another Pair [weartesters.com]
I didn’t expect the shoe to perform this well, but damn! Solid traction, great cushioning, great fit and lockdown, support was on point.

What a fantastic shoe this is. I’m not a fan of Russell Westbrook, but man, do I love playing in his shoe.
9.1
Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
If you are looking for great fit and support, great cushioning, and (almost) great traction, you have got to check this shoe out!

Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
To me, this will be one of the top performance sneakers of 2018. Full-length zoom at $125 - you can't beat that!

The cushion is great, but the lacking traction and the uncomfortable strap hold back what could have been a top performer. I am a bit disappointed by Russel Westbrooks first signature sneaker.

Traction of the Jordan Why Not Zero.1

9
Another Pair [weartesters.com]
If I had to sum up the traction in one word I’d say it was fire.
9
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
If you hoop indoors then you should be very satisfied.

Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
When clean and the court is workable, you’re straight Gorilla Glue.
8
The Sole Brothers
Not the craziest bite on clean courts - but even on very dusty courts, I wouldn't slide out.
8
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
Traction is inconsistent depending on the floor. Works well on clean courts but on dusty courts you need to wipe a lot.

RicheeKim
On a dusty court you will need to wipe a lot!

Cushion of the Jordan Why Not Zero.1

10
The Sole Brothers
This is the best cushioning setup out there!
10
Another Pair [weartesters.com]
This full-length Zoom setup felt absolutely perfect.
10
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
Full-length zoom is my favourite cushioning setup. This shoe is super explosive, responsive and comfortable.
9.5
Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
You get a responsive rocket ride that is low enough for quick guards and won’t hurt when you land.
9
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
This setup felt awesome — especially in the forefoot.

RicheeKim
Full-length zoom is a nice combination of court feel, responsiveness, and impact protection!

Material of the Jordan Why Not Zero.1

The Sole Brothers
Soft and thin mesh material combined with fuse.
9
Another Pair [weartesters.com]
The materials feel soft, and there’s no pinching or plastic feel.
9
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
The shoe is definitely not premium, but it works — and works really well.
8
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
Light, flexible and comfortable mesh upper.

RicheeKim
The materials don't feel very premium but they get the job done!

Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
The materials used on the Why Not Zer0.1 aren’t exactly premium.

Support of the Jordan Why Not Zero.1

10
The Sole Brothers
Super wide base provides great stability.
10
Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
Huge heel counter and outrigger provide phenomenal support without being clunky.
9.5
Another Pair [weartesters.com]
Crazy wide outrigger, flat base, and huge heel cup make sure that your feet are going nowhere!
9.5
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
The wide flat base promotes a ton of stability, while the bulky midsole acts as one of the gnarliest outriggers of all-time.
9
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
Great lockdown, secure lacing system, and a massive outrigger provide great support.
9
RicheeKim
Zero side-to-side movement or heel slippage.

Fit of the Jordan Why Not Zero.1

10
The Sole Brothers
No dead space, great lockdown, and comfortable fit.
10
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
The fit is fan-freaking-tastic.
10
Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
Once your foot is in the shoe, there is no movement at all. NONE.
9.5
Another Pair [weartesters.com]
The moment your foot slides into the shoe the fit just grabs you and locks you in.
9
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
Overall, the shoe is very comfortable. The lace-lock was a little uncomfortable, but you can take it off without compromising performance.
7
RicheeKim
The strap made this shoe very painful to play in and the sizing is a bit strange.

Is Outdoor Use Recommended?

Outside courts: don’t do it. Just don’t.
no
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
The rubber is soft and narrow, so I wouldn't hoop outdoors.
