Chris Paul finally gets his signature sneaker modified for the playoffs. The shoe was upgraded to keep up with Chris during the toughest part of the NBA season. CP3.VI AE feature enhanced heel and foot lockdown system, partially due to new sculpted collar, and partially because of the Dynamic Fit. Combination of these two features offers support, stability and security. Two panels that go along both medial and lateral sides of the shoe provide a good amount of air flow. Mesh tongue also absorbs heat and moisture. The cushioning in CP3.VI AE is provided by the responsive Podulon system which comes straight from CP3.VI. The outsole and the pattern were not modified, and still provide huge amount of traction, just to keep Chris on the floor while he performs.
