During the Rockets' win over the Blazers on Tuesday night, Chris Paul rocked the CP3.XI, the newest line of his signature shoe from the Jordan brand. This colorway was appropriately titled, 'Rocket Fuel'.
Paul isn’t necessarily known for sneaker focus, especially when compared to some other NBA superstars but, prior to the contest, he spoke with Jarrel Harris of Sports Illustrated’s The Crossover and shed light on what went into these particular kicks.
“I pay attention to it. At the end of the day you hope your shoe sales obviously and you want it to perform. The biggest thing for me is performance and over the years a lot of college teams and players have worn them but I know what it is going to do for me on the court."
With the Rockets' success this season, it will surely help boost the shoe's sales.
