This season, Chris Paul joined stars like Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson with a twelfth single-line signature sneaker.
Paul debuted the Jordan CP3.XII in March and has worn different colorways of the model since. Today, Jordan officially unveils three new make-ups slated to launch throughout the summer, along with some details on the shoe's tech updates.
Unlike its predecessor, the CP3.XII does not feature a forefoot cross-strap, instead equipped with a leather quarter panel and forefoot lacing system to support it's performance knit-constructed upper. However, like the CP3.XI, the shoe is cushioned by Zoom Air in the forefoot and modified herringbone handles the traction.
A significant departure from what we've come to expect from the CP3 line is the change in logo. The owl-inspired emblem featured on the CP3.XII represents the wisdom the veteran point guard has acquired throughout his 14-year+ professional career. For a personal touch, Paul's family members’ zodiac symbols are arranged to make up the figure.
The "Unfinished Business" (Black/Red), "Leader of the Pack" (Wolf Grey) and "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" (Multicolor) colorways of the CP3.XII will launch this summer.
