Russell Westbrook is often regarded as the NBA’s most fierce and savage athlete today. The point guard of the Los Angeles Clippers is athletic and physically fit, which is the reason he is at the apex of the league and in the 2016–17 NBA season, he is likely to display MVP-caliber performance. However, Sports Illustrated has ranked Chris Paul ahead of Russell in their list of “NBA’s Top 100 players of 2017.” Chris Paul is truly one of the league’s elite. Hence, it is about time Jordan Brand added another installment to Chris Paul’s signature line and apparently the Jordan CP3.X is actually in the works.
When it comes to NBA athletes that represent Jordan Brand, Chris Paul has undoubtedly been one of the most recognized, ever since he turned pro back in 2004. He currently has nine signature models with Jordan Brand and his entire CP3 signature line has been nothing short of impressive. Over these years, Chris Paul’s signature sneakers have played their role in enabling him to become one of the NBA’s best point guards. There have even been extensions like 2011’s CP 2’Quick and the Artisan Edition of the CP3.VI. Now it seems that Jordan Brand could possibly be preparing to drop the next installment, the CP3.X.
The photos accompanying this post were shared on Gallery2.co.jp and allegedly showcase two different colorways of the potentially upcoming Jordan CP3.X (10). From the looks of it, if this is indeed the CP3.X, then it appears to be quite experimental. A finger-print like swirling overlay seems to be covering a majority of the sides, while the pattern is also continued over the midsoles. The uppers are apparently made up of Jacquard material for the most part, while the overlays appear to be linked to the lacing system via Dynamic Filywire cables. A large “Jumpman” logo and speckles can also be spotted over the overlays.
It remains uncertain whether this is indeed the Jordan CP3.X, although it definitely seems to be, and even if it is not, it could perhaps be a brand new model from Jordan Brand. So, keep checking back for more information and updates about these two colorways.
