The Jordan CP3.VI was quietly launched this past weekend in the patriotic USA colorway along with the ‘Advance’ model of Carmelo Anthony’s Jordan Melo M8, but it’s clear that Chris Paul’s sixth signature model is looking to make more noise. This first look at a Black/Red colorway (presumably an ‘Away’ version for CP3 to wear outside of Staples) gives more contrast to the diamond cut-out detailing on the upper, revealing heightened breathability and flexion – perfect for CP3’s game. The outsole also takes notes from the Air Jordan XIII with multiple protrusions at the heel, while Podulon support maintain’s CP3’s top-level cutting/slashing style of play. A full shot of this Black/Red colorway is just ahead, so give it a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on the Jordan CP3.VI.
