Yesterday, October 3, 2012, Jordan Brand released the sixth iteration of Chris Paul’s signature shoe for mass consumption. While you can learn all about the shoe here, JB provided us with a few cool design tidbits about the CP3.VI: The shoe’s design is meant to resemble the AJ XIII, a model that was stolen from Paul as a kid; there’s a chevron-inspired design visible in the insole, a nod to the gas station CP3′s grandfather ran; the outsole draws inspiration from and looks like a cheetah’s paw, which helps with hard cuts and flexibility; the brightly colored ‘Nitro’ pack, released by JB recently, is a salute to L.A.’s car culture and Paul’s love for autos.

Now available everywhere JB’s are sold, with a retail price of $125, the CP3.VI is purchasable in Game Royal/White-Black-Gym Red, Black/White-Gym Red and White/Gym Red-Black-Game Royal.
