As you can imagine, it certainly pays to be a signature Jordan Brand athlete.

Not only does Chris Paul get his own namesake sneaker -- he's up to 7 of them now -- but he also gets quite a few player exclusive, samples, hyperstrikes and of course, all of the basic general release stuff us civilians have access to.

With the launch of his newly revamped website at ChrisPaul3.com, he shared a glimpse of this Air Jordan 5 PE done up in "Lob City" colors.

"If I wore Retroes in games, these would be mean," says Paul. "These would be real mean."

Indeed. Do you wish Jordan Brand would release them?
