When Chris Paul's dishing out dimes on the hardwood for the Clippers, his twin brother, Cliff, is busy assisting others as a State Farm agent. To celebrate Cliff's life-long dedication to helping those in need, he's getting his own limited edition sneaker from Jordan Brand.
Using the brand new CP3.VIII as the base, the sneaker's equipped with a host of impressive technical specs, including a breathable textile upper and Zoom unit cushioning. Appropriately nicknamed "Worn to Assist," the latest CP3s also feature Cliff's signature argyle print design that he's made famous from his selection of sweaters and vests.
"My style? I never really thought of it as style," Cliff said. "I'm a product of my environment and I've been assisting a long time so it comes naturally. When people think of assisting, argyle comes to mind and I think it's an indication that help is on the way. At the State Farm National Bureau of Assists we sport it as a uniform. A lot of our inspiration comes from our assist-twins as well. My bro, CP3 and I have a similar style which brought us together to design the limited edition Jordan CP3s."
Cliff's "Worn to Assist" sneakers, as well as a matching beanie, will be gifted to select influencers this upcoming All-Star Weekend. Unlike Cliff's previous CP3.VII, which debuted on the NIKEiD sneaker customization platform with an argyle option, there are no plans for this specific colorway to see a general release.
