Nike debuted Russell Westbrook's long-awaited 'Jordan Why Not Zer0.1' on Wednesday, the reigning MVP's first signature shoe with the brand.

Westbrook wore the player edition "Mirror Image" colorway in Wednesday's blowout win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Though the "Mirror Image" colorway will have a limited release on January, the "2-Way" will have a wide release on February 15, for $125.

As a kid growing up in LA and standing in line to get other peoples shoes, you become aware of how fortunate you are to get sneakers. To be able to sit here now and hold my own shoe is an honor.

"My favorite part of the design process is storytelling," says Westbrook, in Nike's official release statement. "Being able to tell my story through colorways and at different times during the season is a lot of fun."
