The Why Not .5 “Hype Music” leans into the love and energy he gets from music through a standout colorway and groundbreaking features. The half-bootie constructed sneaker uses a mix of meshes in black with accents in pink, purple, and teal throughout the sneaker. Russell’s RW logo is seen on the tongue and medial side of the heel, with the Jumpman on the lateral side. The sneaker uses a funky nylon lacing setup with a black and pink overlay on the high wear areas around the toe. The white midsole features what we presume to be a double-stacked Zoom Air unit in the forefoot, and a black outsole that’s detached with a teal shank plate place in the midfoot for stability.
