Currently available in China, the Jordan CP3.9 is hopefully slotted for release in the Western Market. We say hopefully’ because according to reports, these sweet kicks would be exclusive in China. If we’re lucky enough to have them on the shelves, those who are interested better make their reservations now because from the look of things, this particular model will be off the market quickly.
The ninth signature sneaker of Chris Paul, the CP3.9 was first seen worn by Paul during his trip in Africa. Pictures circulating online offer a more defined view of the shoes, starting with the jade colors and a simple black mesh body. Along the side heels you’ve got the iconic Jump Man logo done in white, allowing it to stand out against the black leather body.
The outsole is perhaps the most defining portion of the Jordan CP3.9 “China” combined with the speckled midsole that merges with the mesh body. The tongue is also done in mesh but looks more like blue-green instead of simply green. With crisscross patterns along the sides of the eyelets, the CP3.9 creates a unique design that doesn’t exactly stand out but still manages to catch your eye. The laces are also done in black and instead of the typical Jordan logo on the center of the tongue, this signature shoes of Chris Paul displays a matte silver CP3.
Turning the shoes on its back, the green of the outsole run all the way to the bottom with hardly any defining pattern on the surface. There’s also this little black line indent that’s centered on the bottom of the shoes, providing additional design for the wearer.
All in all, Sneaker News presents an excellent image of the kicks – but they’re not exactly a defining release for the Chris Paul signature. It seems that for the CP3.9, Jordan just made sure they created something functional with a little bit of style without the intention of really standing out from the crowd. Simply put, the CP3.9 “China” isn’t exactly the kind you’d want displayed on the Classic Hall of Fame. However, on the plus side, this means that these shoes would be unforgivable in court with players using it to make those effortless shots.
The Jordan release date for the Jordan CP3.9 “China” isn’t known yet and the price is still unknown for the Western market. Reviews for the shoes regarding style and durability are definitely within the high margins so if you’re looking for something to use on the court or for outdoor activities, this might just be it.
