Jordan CP to assist Chris Paul as best guard in basketball
Feb '08
Jordan Brand, a division of NIKE Inc announced the launch of Chris Paul's first signature shoe, the Jordan CP, set to release on March 1, 2008.

Now in his third season as point guard for the New Orleans Hornets, Paul joins select Team Jordan athletes Carmelo Anthony and Derek Jeter as members of the Brand with their own signature shoe.

“Having my very own sneaker has been a childhood dream. I am thrilled and honored to have this opportunity to launch my first signature shoe with Jordan Brand,” said Chris Paul, Team Jordan athlete.

“The Jordan CP exceeds all of my on-court needs and this was a great chance for me to design a shoe that reflects my inspirations in life and share it with the world.”

Paul was hand-picked by Michael Jordan to become a member of Team Jordan in his rookie year due to his natural leadership ability and undeniable basketball skills.

The Jordan CP showcases personal moments in Paul's life, demonstrating his devotion to basketball as well as the people he admires. The “61” etched in the shoe symbolizes his grandfather.

Just days after the passing of his family hero, Paul played in a high school basketball game scoring exactly 61 points, one for each year his grandfather had lived.

The letters “SP” stitched on the backside of the tongue are in loving memory of his mentor and former college coach Skip Prosser.

The Jordan CP comes detailed with Chris Paul's signature stitch; a bowling pin configuration on the ankle that spotlights his other favorite sport – bowling.

The Jordan CP also takes its design inspiration from the rich cultural heritage of the Mardi Gras Indians and the city of New Orleans paying homage to the Hornets with a New Orleans stinger heel pull tab.
