Two new colorways of the New Orleans Hornets Guard Chris Paul’s signature sneaker just dropped in black and red and white and red. The Jordan CP takes inspiration from New Orleans Mardi Gras Indians and bowling (!?), CP is a hardcore bowler for those of you who don’t know, on the shoe the ankles were designed to emulate bowling pins. In the back heel of the shoe you will find “61xty” written out vertically. This pays respect to Chris Pauls grand father who was killed at the age of 61, CP scored 61 points a few days later in a High School basketball game and walked off the court not scoring another point as a tribute to his late grandfather. Filled with emotion and strength, the CP3 is sure to have an impact on Chis Paul’s game and yours as well. These two colorways are now available in Jordan retailers and on Nikestore.
