Russell Westbrook’s newest shoes are an ode to Super Soakers

Complete with the white zip ties


If you’ve ever wanted to wear the ‘90s on your feet without having to resort to moon boots, the newest Jordan Why Not Zer0.2s might be your best (and safest) bet. The neon yellow and green colorway of the sneakers, which come from Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, is an ode to the Super Soaker water guns you briefly played with in the ‘90s before they inevitably started leaking from a hole in the cheap plastic.

As pointed out by The Source, the shoes are made to look like the classic Super Soaker 50 in its iconic packaging. They come in a purple cardboard box that echoes the original tagline, replacing “The most powerful watergun ever!” with “The most powerful point guard ever!” The shoes even come with white zip ties, which call back to the zip ties that held the original water gun in place. They are conveniently very “in” in fashion right now.

There’s no word yet on when the Super Soaker sneakers will be available, but the Why Not Zer0.2s are already in stores in other colorways.
