Westbrook to Get Jordan Brand Glasses

Via The Hoop Doctors:

As we all know, last season was a breakout season for Russell Westbrook in terms of fashion. He went from being un-notable to being the Sultan of Style. We all remember him for his crazy fishing lure shirts and his oddly colored pants, but perhaps the most lasting image of his style was the bright red glasses he often wore, evoking images of the great Steve Urkel.

Well, that excellent taste in glasses isn't going to stop, as part of Westbrook's deal with Jordan Brand, he will be getting a whole array of customized specs to wear. Jordan Brand teamed up with 9FIVE to make the glasses, but whether we'll be able to purchase these glasses in the future is anyone's guess.

One thing's for sure; these glasses will go for a pretty penny on eBay in 20 years.

Check out some images of Russell Westbrook's new glasses below. As you can see, he's going for a look that's less outrageous and more classy. But they've still got just enough flair to make you stop and stare.

Westbrook Talks Jordan Brand | NewsOK

Here are a few questions taken from Mayberry's interview, but we encourage you to read the whole thing:

***

Q: You’re an extremely loyal guy. What made you feel like it was time for a change?

A: I just felt it was a good opportunity for me and the Jordan Brand. They have a great staff over there that supports their players and I thought it was a good spot for me.

***

Q: For a while there were whispers that you had joined adidas. Was there anything to those rumors, and how close were you to signing with adidas?

A: Nah, I don’t know where that came from. I guess somebody just kind of made that up. They were an option, but they weren’t nowhere close.

***

Q: Does Michael Jordan still handpick the players he wants to represent his brand?

A: Yes. I think so. To my knowledge, I think he wants guys that relate to the brand. I don’t think they want too many guys. But they want guys that relate to the brand.

***

Q: What’s your all-time favorite Jordan’s?

A: The 11s, the Space Jams. (I like) the patent leather. They come in a variety of different colors and they’re comfortable. They’re one of the best ones, I think.

***

Q: What has been your reaction to fans and media that showed so much interest in which shoe company you would endorse?

A: It was crazy. I didn’t know too many people paid attention to that type of stuff, especially when people sign new shoe deals. But I had a lot of attention on it. I didn’t know a lot of people paid that much attention to it, to tell you the truth. It kind of surprised me.
