Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets point guard gets his own shoe. Chris will have a signature line of shoes called “The Jordan CP which will hit stores this weekend.  The shoe has a “61” etched into it which symbolizes his grandfather. After his grandfather died, Paul played in a high school basketball game scoring exactly 61 points, one for each year his grandfather had lived. The letters “SP” stitched on the backside of the tongue are in loving memory of his mentor and former college coach Skip Prosser. The shoe also comes with Chris Paul’s signature stitch; a bowling pin configuration on the ankle that spotlights his other favorite sport – bowling. The Jordan CP also takes its design inspiration from the rich cultural heritage of the Mardi Gras Indians and the city of New Orleans paying homage to the Hornets with a New Orleans stinger heel pull tab.
