Want to feel old? Chris Paul is entering his 10th season in the NBA, and he was just given his eighth signature shoe from Jordan Brand. Seems like just a few years ago when Paul was wreaking havoc on defenders everywhere as the stud point guard for Wake Forest. How time flies.
Arriving just in time for the 2014-2015 NBA season, the VIII has the comfort and light weight that have always characterized the CP3. Nike Zoom beneath the forefoot provides ample cushioning, and a lightweight textile upper supplies support. A TPU Chassis, a piece of technology on the midfoot, gives the shoe lateral stability, which allows players like Paul, whose game is predicated on quick movements, to cut quickly without slipping.
The CP3.VIII retains Chris Paul’s logo on the tongue and his family tree on the inside of the shoe. You can get your hands on these kicks Nov. 1 for $130.
