Jordan Brand Officially Unveil Chris Paul’s Twelfth Signature Sneaker
The Houston Rockets and their star Point Guard Chris Paul’s season may be done, but the nine-time NBA All-Star still has something to look forward to over the coming months; the release of his Jordan CP3 XII.
The shoe was purposely crafted to advance features dedicated to basketball performance. The strap that once mirrored Paul’s favorites – the Nike Adjust Force and the Nike Air Jet Flight, has been removed and replaced with a performance knit on the upper, a leather quarter panel and a forefoot lacing system for lateral stability.
After a 14-year professional career (and counting), Paul has reached peak erudition on the court. That’s why the owl, the wisest animal of them all, is part of Paul’s new logo. His family members’ zodiac symbols are arranged to make up the figure, continuing Paul’s history of hiding family details in his signature shoes. The symbol also appears underneath the traction.
Three colorways will kick off the first wave of release, the “Unfinished Business” (Black/Red), “Leader of the Pack” (Wolf Grey) and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” “Multicolor) are inspired by an element of Paul’s career.
Look for these color options — and more — of the Jordan CP3.XII to begin releasing this summer at select retailers and Nike.com.
