With the Paul join the Houston Rockets the rocket has been a great changed compare with three year ago, also Paul got the great performance in the game .The Jordan CP3.XI, this shoe have been a great surprise in this game, also Chris Paul’s latest signature model.
So how is the performance review ? We will check it today .
The CP3 .11 dressed in all White across the uppers. The highlight of this design is the Black and Red strap across the sneaker, which contrasts the rest.
It also feature CP3 branding on the heel and tongue as well as Texas flag themed insoles. This brand new model will sit on a White outsole to finish off the look.
The particularly eye-catching is Paul’s personal logo. The right shoe’s tongue is the Jumpman logo.
Red strap across the sneaker ，and there are 3 hole on the sneakers, then the red jumpmen logo also attracted a lot people
There is the best disappointed that the strap limited bent in the normal way， sometimes we will feel there is not the enough space for playing .
For the material : The CP3 used the a leather and engineering mesh fabric stitching shoe upper, it is totally different the last version— suede or nubuck ends up, for this version ‘HOME’ feeling like felt with a stiff backing, which nice for breathability but is suck for containment. The heel is a nice synthetic leather and adds a little touch of class in the back. so the supporting is great .
Although the forefoot leather material performs well in sports support, it has almost zero on the ventilation and heat dissipation. There is no problem in everyday , but on the court, it feels very hot in the confrontation of large amounts of exercise.
Here is the details on the foot:
CP11’s upper straps also cause some discomfort after the heel . Since the straps is a little hard, it is difficult to cause deformations when the straps are bent. When the straps are worn for the first time, there will be a noticeable gripping sensation. However, after a certain period of time, the grip feeling will be significantly changed .
For the traction : This is a translucent rubber and it’s fairly soft.But herringbone forefoot is almost always a good idea, and the Jordan CP3.XI has that in spades. The tread is multidirectional across the main part of the pattern and broken up at the toe-off area.if we play longer , I will feel a slight wear on the inside of the forefoot.But it is different compare with the “Rocket Fuel”. The pattern is wide but the grooves are fairly shallow, so dust collection did become an issue after a few trips down the court. However, it was nothing a quick wipe couldn’t handle.
Zoom Air, with a full-shoulder Phylon midsole for the CP3, The cushioning ability of the previous two generations of CP3.IX and CP3.X’s forefoot have been not good enough, But the CP3 XI increase in the balance of the foot air cushion .
Heel and forefoot Zoom Air encased in a soft Phylon midsole.We can clearly feel the shoe’s sense of being wrapped in the feet, so it will be slightly smaller in size. if you are a wilder foot, maybe you choose over half size for the shoes.With the strap design of the upper, it provides additional protection feeling. During the game, I felt that the CP11 fits his feet very well. No matter whether it is a dribble or a breakthrough, the feeling is smooth and not dragged.
The texture of the outsole from the Velcro patch to the arch of the arch becomes denser and thinner. The increase in the area of texture also allows the shoe to have more ground contact opportunities in actual combat, and can be provided from multiple grip.
For the supporting , it is great . The leather and mesh cloth uppers are superior in the woven or mesh uppers, in addition , the heel also has a rigid TPU surrounding the support plate, so the CP11 is absolutely capable of supporting performance. you can moves what you want. not only the upper material, the bottom of the strap is help a lot, it able to provide a stable support effect from the side of the force of the foot.
The CP3 .11 used the air cushions of the ZOOM AIR ,it can be considered very useful for the ordinary combat party. Therefore, the cushioning performance is also quite outstanding.
CP11’s cushioning performance at the time of falling is particularly noticeable, it can be effectively alleviated. At the same time, the air cushion can provide a quick rebound in the moment you start the depression, so that the start is more smooth.The Phylon midsole encases the units, and while this is normally a bad thing, the midsole seems softer than previous models and similar to the Cushlon used in the Kyrie 4. if you like the kyrie 4, maybe this one also a great option.
“Guard” shoe the CP3.XI holds it down in the support and stability category. So you can feel a great supporting .
Overall, the CP3.XI takes it back to what we all used to believe in: performance engineered for the greatest athletes. it is a nice guard shoes ,cushioning that is stable but provides great impact protection, and a supportive, I feel it great for the performance , I do better in the court with the CP3XI.
