Despite suffering an injury by the time the recent Warriors game came to an end, Chris Paul has been on a roll in the sneaker world as of lately. His latest signature model and an exclusive lifestyle silhouette are already on their way to retailers, but now this upcoming week will is going to mark the retail debut of his former Air Jordan 13 Retro PE colorways. The first Air Jordan 13 Retro “CP3” PE is about to hit the shelves on November 7th, which will be followed by the international 2015 Jordan release date of the “Home” colorway in China. However, now a GS version is also arriving.
It would not be wrong to claim that Chris Paul is currently Jordan Brand’s leading athlete, perhaps second only to Michael Jordan himself. This is the only explanation behind Jordan Brand dropping so many different kicks that have his name associated with them. As mentioned above, there are already two colorways of the Air Jordan 13 Retro “CP3” PE that will arrive at retailers soon and now even kids will be able to cop their own Hornets-themed Air Jordan 13 Retro “CP3” PE. It is even being rumored that this sneaker could actually be a part of the “Feng Shui” Collection.
The odd thing about this GS exclusive version is that despite being a new Air Jordan 13 Retro “CP3” PE edition, there is no trace of a CP3 logo on the sneaker. Nonetheless, this rendition is still dressed up in colors inspired by Chris Paul’s former team, the New Orleans Hornets. Most of the sneaker’s upper is covered in purple, while the inner lining and outsole are dressed up in teal. White also makes an appearance over the outsole, adding a contrast touch.
It is true that this Hornets-themed Air Jordan 13 Retro GS “CP3” PE is scheduled to take place on November 11th, 2015 along with the “Home” iteration. Unfortunately, both versions are hitting the shelves in China and there is currently no news of a stateside release.
