History of CP3 Signature Shoes
As a rookie, Chris Paul initially signed with Nike for a four-year, $600,000 per year deal with Nike. Eventually, he was recruited by Michael Jordan to join his brand. In 2019, the Jordan Brand deal was reportedly worth $4 million a year for Chris. The university he attended also got a deal with the Swoosh in 2017 and their basketball team now gets special player exclusives from Jordan Brand.
Chris’s first signature shoe, the Jordan CP3.I, was released in 2008, the year he was selected as a first-time All-Star.

Characteristics of CP3 Shoes
Chris Paul’s shoes have not been the most popular in the NBA, but they have been consistent. Without even making much of a stir, CP3 has released 12 editions of his sneakers with the Jumpman so far. Only seven other players have released at least ten signature shoes with the same brand in NBA history, among which are Michael Jordan, Lebron James, and Kobe Bryant.
From the first six iterations, Chris’ signature line only utilized foams. The CP3.V and VI featured Podulon, a cushion that has barely been used since. It was dual-density and utilized pods in certain strike zones to give a more bouncy feel there. Podulite, along with Zoom Air, was first introduced with the CP3.VII. Since then, the line has used different implementations of foam and Zoom Air, some articulated, to give people a low-to-the-ground responsive feel so no movement is delayed, but also adequate impact protection so one can last on court.
Materials have definitely moved with their times. The CP3.I until III used a mostly leather build and were high-collared shoes. Although the fourth was a mid while the fifth was a low, they both used fuse as their main material. From then on, the line has stuck to low-tops that featured either a dominantly knit or mesh upper with synthetic overlays in high-wear areas for durability and containment. Interestingly, only the 11th utilized a strap. It was also then that they stopped using the Roman numerals to number Chris’ sneakers.
In a rare case for signatures, the CP3 line has seen its price decline – starting off in the $125 range, the latest edition now retails for only $110. There are currently no cheaper options from Jordan Brand.
