Concept behind the Air Jordan XXXII “Russ”
The Air Jordan XXXII “Russ” was modeled after last year’s standout basketball player Russell Westbrook and the team he represents. The NBA superstar took the league by storm deservedly taking the MVP tag and convincing the Jordan Brand that he was worthy of his current role as the face of the product.

Release Date: November 22, 2017
The sneakers, dubbed the “Russ” as a short form to the player’s name, will premier in an elegant vibrant blue as the sneaker’s predominant color that takes over the entirety of the upper body. The sharpness of the blue is brought to life by a sparingly spread shade of orange accents found along the sneaker’s edges. The midsole is cotton white in color and precedes a bottom dominated by orange linings with a couple of blue spots in between.
The colors are a tribute to the Westbrook’s Oklahoma City Thunder whose primary team colors encompass a dominant blue complimented by orange accents. The Air Jordan XXXII “Russ” incorporates the latest in sneaker technology as it is built upon state of the art Zoom Air Cushioning technology and is made from the finest of premium leather material. Both of these features go hand in hand in making the shoes comfortable, light and soft to the touch; all crucial aspects of sneakers tailored for intense and extended physical activity.
The trademark “Air Jordan” logo stands proudly near the end of the shoe’s tongue, as is customary of the Jordan series, however, these new jordans have a neat trick up their sleeve that OKC and sneaker lovers at large will certainly love. The Air Jordan XXXII “Russ” not only oozes class but a defiant never say die attitude actualized in the form of a two-word “Why not?!” catchphrase synonymous with NBA superstar Russell. This is printed out at the back above the heel of the shoes.
