Flashback Friday: Air Jordan 13 Retro CP3

This time two years ago, Jordan Brand dropped a true gem for the Fall season. Dropping player exclusive Jordans is always a sure way to cause excitement in the sneaker game. The Air Jordan 13 Retro CP3 pays homage to his days as a New Orleans Hornet. In case you weren't aware, the Hornets drafted Chris Paul a decade ago, giving him a start to his NBA career. Other Chris Paul player exclusives are rumored to hit retail in the near future. Releasing player exclusive models that sneakerheads have been drooling over is an effective marketing strategy. It'll be interesting to see what other player exclusives hit shelves in the coming year. For now, let's reflect on this glorious release and Cherish this rare colorway.

The sneaker includes a classic mix of nylon, suede and tumbled leather. This black, Sunstone and Orion blue colorway is the epitome of a New Orleans Hornets themed sneaker. Taking the place of the Jumpman logo is CP3 branding on the tongue. The Air Jordan 13 Retro CP3 is a solid release with a distinctive retro appeal. Are these currently apart of your weekly rotation?
