The Westbrook One Take series is Russell Westbrook’s budget signature line, which saw its first shoe release last year. The One Take 1 shared an almost identical tech-spec from its main signature shoe, the Why Not? Zer0.3. The One Take 1 featured a forefoot Zoom Air bag with a phylone carrier. Due to it’s similarities, the One Take became an alternative to the Why Not? Zer0.3 for people who didn’t want the pay an extra $30 for the addition of a plastic strap.
The One Take 2 has kept the low cut silhouette from the One Take 1. The upper is made up of performance mesh and a mixture of overlays on the toe area and around the laces. The lace loops around the forefoot area each cover the medial side and lateral side allowing additional containment of the foot.
Midsole Cushion Set-Up
Budget signature line rarely improve the tech-specs, so it is highly likely that the One Take 2 will also have a forefoot Zoom Air bag and a phylone foam midsole. The phylone midsole encasing the Zoom Air bag features grooves around the heel area. This allows better compression of the foam thus protecting the foot from impact when landing.
The outsole pattern looks similar to the previous One take model. It features thin, regularly separated herringbone lines. This may provide good traction indoors, but there are concerns with its durability outdoors, due to the thickness of the lines.
Price and Release Date
On paper, no improvements have been made from the One Take 1 to the One Take 2. So, the price of the One Take 2 will probably remain at $100. The One Take 2 is expected to release after the release of the Why Not? Zer0.4 which would release around Spring 2021.
