January 11, 2013 is a special date for Russell Westbrook — and it is because of two reasons. The first one is due to the fact that this was the date when he scored 27 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds to lead Oklahoma City Thunder into victory against Kobe Bryant-powered Los Angeles Lakers.
The second reason is this was also the date when he showcased his very own sneaker. For the first time, his fans saw him wear his Thunder-themed Air Jordan 3 Russell Westbrook OKC PE — an Air Jordan 3 Player Exclusive. No wonder why he will not ever forget this date.
The exclusive sneaker features a classic black cement color combination, acting as its fundamental design. To customize a bit, yellow, orange and photo blue with an Oklahoma palette were added.
Unlike other new Jordans, Air Jordan 3 Russell Westbrook OKC PE are not available in the market yet. In fact, there are only 10 pairs of this limited edition sneaker. Four were already sent to Westbrook, while the other pairs were given to family, friends and Jordan employees. These people are so lucky to be in the exclusive list.
Anthony Jordan, a photographer and sneaker collector, is one of the few lucky ones who was able to get a pair of this highly exclusive Westbrook sneaker.
A celebration of Westbrook’s popularity
Westbrook decided to stay in Oklahoma City and it seemed that it has been paying off. He has become more popular ever since — and one proof is a sneaker under his name. Indeed, the debut of Air Jordan 3 Russell Westbrook OKC PE is also a celebration of his popularity and success in the hard court. This is why it’s just more fitting now to talk about this release.
Although Air Jordan and Westbrook fans cannot buy this sneaker yet, many of them are still going crazy over the sneaker’s nice design. They might have just seen it once but they have already fallen deeply in love with it. Perhaps, the fact that Westbrook wore it in a highly anticipated match against Lakers that made it even more special.
We still do not know when we will be able to see this sneaker model under Jordan release dates. The final decision will still come from Westbrook and Air Jordan management. But one thing is for sure — once it hits the market — it will be a surefire hit among Westbrook and Air Jordan aficionados. In any case, you can find a wide array of new jordans in the market today that will surely catch your fancy.
