Chris Paul’s tenth signature sneaker, the Jordan CP3.X, has almost everything a great sneaker needs,I was so lucky to get the the CP3X when I am the store of Nike .It is my favorite colorway .
The CP3X AE is less TPU obviously design in appearance, although it is less innovative . but the special color makes up for what might have turned out to be a plain shoes. Will the performance be sacrificed because of the price reduction?
1.Jordan CP3.X AE River Rock/Metallic Silver/Black Traction
Cp3x have excellent grip that I loved .I play it in any court , indoor ,clean court ,dirty court and plastic court. It is excellent grip help me a lot . I play very well compare with be in other shoes . The feeling great .the lines of bottom the same as CPX3 . I can feel the Air zoom in playing .
So my basketball bag will prepare a pair of CP3X AE or Zoom Live in the near future for replace if other shoes which test not very good.
The CP3X AE used the XRD midsole which improve the durability and grip. That is will be better then Crazy Explosive.
2. Jordan CP3.X AE River Rock/Metallic Silver/Black Cushioning
For CP3X, I think the biggest drawback is the “Zoom Air”. Known as the 9 forefoot shape which hard,stiff ,it is not very good then PHYLON of last version .of course, it can be explained design for starting speed in order to reduce the longer time , why not just put Zoom Air on the back ?it is confused us for it .
But for CP3X AE ,It is seems to improve the Zoom Air of the midsole . Maybe a lot of people complain, so Nike decide to improve the drawback . Though I cant feel the bounce very much , but it is already feel the supporting in playing . That is great for this .So I will stay tuned the future one .
3.Jordan CP3.X AE River Rock/Metallic Silver/Black Material / Support/Fit
The upper material seems used the woven upper which the official site story . That is better then the material of Flyweave in CP3X . More powerful and more durable for this material . But the I think comfort with texture is slightly decreased. Although there is no design TPU inside . but Flywire lace system for vamp match foot attached extreme very well, because there is no design TPU , So it is easy to wear then CP3X. Of course, the TPU of heel seem keep it , I can feel the protection clearly .
There is a design defect that lace holes which connected between Flywire and shoe often pull into inside of shoes , I dont know it is clealy what I said . Just a little annoying for the lace system . But this did not affect the actual playing .
For size , as the same last time of CP3X , I choose the over half size which I feel comfort . I usually wear this pair of US9.5 US10.
I like this colorway, though at the beginning ,my teammates said it is ugly .but i think it is great . Thought a lot of people will like the silver .gold and metalic colorway . CP3X AE used the great texture to make up the plain shape design .
Overall , the CP3X AE is worth this price ,especially the price reduce a little . The colorway and material are comfort. The cushioning also improve a lot compare with last version .I will except the follow future one now .How do you think ? Just share your idea with us .
