Chris Paul’s Vision Is Realized With The Launch Of The New Jordan CP3.VIII

Chris Paul Jordan CP3.VIII

Back in 2003 at the Jordan Capital Classic, every last person in the MCI Center – including a just-retired Michael Jordan – focused their gaze on a young upstart by the name of LeBron James. James didn’t disappoint, leading all scorers with 34 points, albeit in a losing effort.

But if you could tear your eyes away from the boy who would be King, the point guard of the squad that took down Team LeBron was also a sight to behold, an efficient yet insuppressible whirling dervish on both ends of the court. For Chris Paul, the conclusion of his high-school career absolutely seemed like the start of something big – in more ways than one. Read More »

Jordan Brand Introduces Chris Paul’s Jordan CP3.VIII

Jordan CP3.VIII

The gala nature of the unveiling of the Air Jordan XX9 back in April was no surprise — nearly three decades of heritage behind the annual game shoe dictated a grand premiere that featured royalty such as Jordan Brand designer extraordinaire Tinker Hatfield and Michael Jordan himself.

But with Chris Paul seven All-Star Games and eight acclaimed signature sneakers deep — for perspective, Penny Hardaway only had four over the course of his career — it’s only fitting that CP3’s new sneaker gets some similar shine befitting one of the best players in the NBA for close to a decade.

Wear-Test: Going Home Again In The Air Jordan XX9

Air Jordan XX9

As time passes, many of the things we enjoyed when we were younger fall by the wayside, replaced by a combination of new favorite pastimes and newfound responsibilities. This, of course, is simply the natural order of things.

That said, so long as you don’t dwell on it too long, an occasional dose of nostalgia isn’t such a bad thing, simultaneously reminding us of good times and demonstrating to us how far we’ve come. Air Jordan retros are a perfect example: When you strap on a pair that you had as a kid, it has the ability to bring you back to a simpler time when you would swear a new pair of sneakers made you run faster and jump higher than before.

Derek Jeter, Michael Jordan

In Jordan Brand‘s new ad for Derek Jeter, scheduled to air just before he appears in the 2014 MLB All-Star Game Tuesday night, a stunning collection of fellow baseball players, NBA stars, coaches, managers, musicians, movie directors, a former NYC mayor, the G.O.A.T, New Yorkers, and even Sawx fans all tip their caps to the Captain. We don’t really like baseball (to slow), but Jeter is an institution in New York, and this 90-second spot is sure to raise the hairs on your arms regardless of how you feel about baseball. Read More »
