Chris Paul took the league by storm upon his entrance in 2004. By his second year, he was touted as the best floor general in the league, and his on-court efforts awarded him a spot on the Western Conference All-Star team and among the top vote-getters for the League MVP trophy. His unparalleled talent paired with his work ethic led to his being hand-picked by Michael Jordan to represent the elite group of athletes to carry on the Jordan Brand name, and after two great Chris Paul signature shoes, the third installment of Jordan CP3 signature line is set to drop in mere weeks.
Jordan Brand has never before seen a player of Chris Paul’s caliber on Team Jordan; to reciprocate, Jordan Brand has featured a never-before-seen cushioning system called “Podulon”, an evolved form of the Independent Podular Suspension system seen on the revolutionary Air Jordan XX. Podulon has been engineered to complement Chris Paul’s explosive style of play, and the technology behind this cutting-edge cushioning is meant to maintain responsiveness and comfort.
The design of the CP3.III is as personal as it gets; a hornet was the muse in the conception of this shoe, and additional touches like a “Family Crest” depicting his family and a the number 28 to represent the length of his parents’ marriage are just some of the heartfelt applications on the CP3.III. Chris Paul deems his third signature shoe as his “most comfortable basketball shoe yet”. You can see for yourself on the day after Christmas when limited edition of the Jordan CP3.III is set to drop, or wait until January 2, 2010 for the official release. via Freshnessmag.
