Chris Paul is known for speed, vision, and agility on the court. And, his ninth signature sneaker, the Jordan CP3.IX, was designed to match and enhance this aggressive set of skills. The innovative features that were incorporated include a web-lacing system for 360-degree lockdown support, a composite mesh upper with foam overlays that provide lockdown fit, and a nine-chamber Zoom Air unit that gives the wearer the ultimate in responsive cushioning. Plus, this "Yellow Dragon" edition has a striking colorway with dragon graphic on the heel. The parallel between Paul's movement during play, and the "dragon dance" that celebrates Chinese New Year was the inspiration.
