We just mentioned that Chris Paul is currently in Africa with 20 other NBA stars who were preparing to participate in Africa’s first ever NBA game. Well, the NBA Africa Game 2015 finally took place recently on August 1st, in Johannesburg, South Africa at the Ellis Park Arena. Chris Paul has made it somewhat of a trend of unveiling new signature Air Jordan CP3 models during the late summer and apparently that is what he ended up doing at the recent game. Nobody knows what sneaker Chris Paul was actually wearing during the game or it may arrive at retailers on one of the upcoming air jordan release dates 2015, but there is some speculation of what those kicks might be.
Dikembe Mutombo and Hakeem Olajuwon, the legendary basketball players from Africa who used to play in the NBA, were also present during the ceremonial jump ball at the NBA Africa Game 2015. The game took place as a part of Basketball Without Boarders, where Team Africa competed against Team World. The two teams were captained by two currently renowned NBA stars, namely Luol Deng captaining Team Africa and Chris Paul captaining Team World. Considering that the crowd was busy watching the game, many may have not paid attention to the kicks that Chris Paul had laced up in.
However, apparently Chris was wearing the same sneakers during a supposedly practice session. The pair appears to be a never-before-seen Safari-themed Air Jordan silhouette that many are speculating could be the latest installment in Chris Paul’s signature series, i.e. the CP3.9. While it could be just about any low-top Air Jordan model, but it is the “CP3” logo that is featured on the tongue that gives it away as a CP3 pair.
Jordan Brand has remained quite tight lipped about the kicks Chris Paul was wearing, and understandably so, considering the event in Africa. However, news related to the potential CP3.9 could surface very soon and one of the very first new school season Jordan release dates 2015 could mark its retail debut.
