  • Great lockdown and stability

CONS:

  • Little ventilation

Summary of 4 Expert Reviews:

Chris Paul's 11th signature sneaker is very well-liked by sneaker reviewers. The traction has amazing bite and works well even on dusty courts. The low-to-the-ground cushioning setup provides a nice combination of impact protection and responsiveness. The forefoot strap helps to lock down your feet tightly, and the lacing system makes sure that there is zero heel slippage. Materials aren't premium but they do their job (even though ventilation could be better). Overall, the CP3.XI is a great all-around performer that should work well for positions 1-5 and comes at a very affordable price!

If you need traction for days, cushioning that is stable but provides great impact protection, and a supportive, stable base look no further — the CP3.XI should be a shoe for you, no matter the position.

The CP3.XI is one of my favorite shoes to play in right now. Great cushioning, comfortable fit and nice low-to-the-ground feel. This shoe has everything I like in a shoe and nothing that I don't.

The CP3 XI is definitely a step in the right direction as cushion, comfort, and traction have all been upgraded compared to the predecessors. It's a very well-rounded shoe that should appeal to a lot of players.

The herringbone traction works well on clean floors but dust catches on quickly to the narrow traction pattern.

Semi-firm Phylon as well as Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot provide a pretty sweet ride.

The forefoot cushion is a bit mushier and less responsive than I would have liked. Heel cushion feels firmer and impact protection is great.

If you can, avoid the colorways with synthetic leather as it is pretty stiff and takes a while to break in.
