"Being a Black man in today's society is something that I cherish and own and I am always trying to find ways to impact and inspire our youth. To help express the meaning of #WHYNOT the @jumpman23 team and I teamed up with BIPOC (black, indigenous and people of color) artists to showcase the talents of this community. Each artist was paired up with a colorway to give my story a unique design or illustration seen through their eyes."

“My favorite part about this shoe, and this whole collection, is being able to use different fabrics and materials yet still prioritizing the performance of the shoe,” Westbrook said in Jordan’s official release .

The shoe is part of an apparel collection that launches globally on January 14.
