After the classic that was the Jordan CP3.VI, I had very high hopes for the Jordan CP3.VII. Can they achieve the level or get clipped from the start?

***

Yeah, I know – supremely late with this one. To be honest, I was very hesitant to review this shoe, and only last month got my pair. One reason – I seem to be extremely Jordan-heavy lately. Another – I still like playing in the CP3.VI and CP3.VI AE too much. Those shoes were so good I honestly was scared this year would fall off. Should have known, Jordan has done nothing but put out classics the last two years.

First things first (or late), the materials; everyone who has reviewed these has marveled at the materials. I honestly think it is a shame we get so geeked about a shoe using ACTUAL LEATHER! And NUBUCK! What will we get next? Seriously, if these had come out in the ’90s, or even early 2000s (pre-Hyperdunk), we wouldn’t say a word about materials, but such is the day. Leather and nubuck abound, and I love it. Last leather shoe I got was the Under Armour Bloodline and I said it then – give me good leather that creases and forms to my foot, and I will deal with the weight. It is just such a great feeling, like a high-end dress shoe, when that leather takes on your style. As you see here, I opted for the blue camo colorway (only Duke approximation I could find) with the coated leather midfoot and black nubuck heel and toe, and again with honesty, the heel and toe was why I bought them in the end. That nubuck – man, I miss it. So, done wishing I was a kid again. Let’s go play like one…

Real nice write up here, Duke. Makes me want to plunk some money down for these bad boys. Nice to see JB doing it’s think with materials for both these and the M10’s. Hope they keep it that way.

“Can they achieve the level or get clipped from the start?” Do I sense some wordplay here? Haha. And wait, is that snow… In Texas? Or am I dreaming and you don’t live there?!

Definite wordplay – got to keep it lively so people keep reading. And that is snow, in Texas, for the second time this year. What global warming?

Hey, duke– great review! Didn’t realize you were from Dallas, we should hoop one of these days. I usually go to the UT southwestern gym because its close to work but am always looking for good games. I also have a pair of very lightly used ts super creators in sz 10.5– if you’ve still got a hankering for old school puremotion, maybe we can work our a trade! Holla @ me, email [email protected]

review’s a great read as usual. The photos are even cooler.
i just find the cp3s a bit wide for me, something that i have to double/triple sock for me to fix.

you’re right about the materials, if these was a couple of years ago, the leather and nubuck wouldn’t be a big deal. I missed leather too.
