To launch Chris Paul’s brand new signature shoe, Jordan Brand leads with a colorway inspired by East LA and the era he grew up in.
The ‘Bel-Air’ Jordan CP3.VII sports a court purple leather upper, accented by vibrant 80s-inspired hits of pink blue and neon green. Below sits a speckled grey midsole and icy translucent rubber outsole.
Designed to accommodate CP3′s speed and aggressive style of play, the CP3.VII features Nike Zoom technology, dynamic Flywire support and a herringbone pattern on the outsole for multidirectional traction.
Engineered to provide responsive cushioning, Podulon has been swapped out for Podulite. Flywire technology is customizable through the laces and wraps the midfoot and arch for an adaptive fit. Perforations throughout the upper enhance breathability.
Keeping’s up with Paul’s speed, synthetic heel stirrups wrap around the heel and integrate with the laces for a lockdown fit.
Ahead of tomorrow’s official launch, you can grab these 80s-themed Chris Paul shoes here today.
