Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clipper opened up the 2014-15 season with a win against the Thunder last night; the kicks he wore will be available tomorrow.
The CP3.VIII features a family tree on the inside of the tongue, and a Chevron logo that pays tribute to Chris Paul's grandfather, who owned a station himself. This Cool Grey/White/Black colorway is going to be available for purchase on November 1st for $130.
“I take designing the shoe very seriously. I like the testing process, refining the details and pushing the limits on performance,” said Paul, who will be wearing the shoe throughout the upcoming season. “From the cushioning and Flight Web lockdown system to the rubberized outsole that helps me stop on a dime, I know what these shoes can do for me, and when my opponent sees them, they know too.”

Chris Paul never wears the same pair of shoes for two games. Says he cracks open a new pair every night.— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) August 27, 2014
