Pros:

Good outdoor shoe

CONS:

Generic aesthetics

Performance of the Jordan CP3 12:

The CP3 12 deserves more attention than it's release got! The traditional herringbone traction pattern is squeaky, tacky, and performs on all surfaces - even outdoors! The Phylon midsole and Zoom unit in the forefoot provide a well-balanced cushioning that should work for most players. The Flyknit material feels premium in-hand and comfortable on-foot and is usually reserved for much more expensive sneakers! To sum it up: the CP3-12 is a huge sleeper. It's a great shoe at an even better price!

The CP3 12 is a no-nonsense type of shoe that offers a lot of performance for it’s $100 price point. I'm pleasantly surprised!

The Zoom unit in the forefoot is bouncy and responsive, the Phylon midsole is rather firm overall.

The Phylon midsole feels super comfortable but the forefoot Zoom isn't as bouncy as I would have hoped.

One of the nicest Flyknit materials I have felt in a long time. The synthetic suede on the medial side and in the heel isn't great though.

No heel slippage, my ankles felt secure and the wide base provides stability on lateral cuts.

Even though the Flyknit upper is stretchy we didn't experience any issues with lateral containment and support.

The fit of the flexible Flyknit upper feels great but the customizable lacing system feels a bit gimmicky.
