There was a lot more than new shoes surrounding Chris Paul’s life in late-December; the All-NBA point guard was traded from New Orleans to Los Angeles in a last-minute blockbuster trade the created an intra-Conference shift in power, bringing a bonafide superstar to one of the biggest sports stages in the world. Now the focus is completely on basketball, and while designer Andre Doxey had already completed the CP3.VI design by the time the trade went down, a fresh new take on colorways with LA flavor had been brought in to send the Jordan CP3 line to new heights.
Inspired by Chris Paul’s infatuation with fast cars and the Los Angeles street-racing scene, Jordan Brand has created the Jordan CP3.VI ‘Nitro Pack’; these neon-friendly colorways mimic the energetic exteriors of these finely-tuned made-for-racing cars, honing in on a neon green, hot orange, and metallic silver. The Jordan CP3.VI ‘Nitro Pack’ is scheduled to be a Los Angeles-exclusive release on October 21st and will be followed by a broader release in November, so check out the detailed gallery below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more Jordan Brand updates and information.
