Chris Paul's signature legacy with Jordan Brand will be extended with the all-new Jordan CP3.IX, which is set for release on Oct. 1.

The sneaker looks East for inspiration as the first two colorways, the "Emerald" and "Yellow Dragon," both feature Chinese flavor. The Chinese character for "family" appears on the design's outsole, and the "Yellow Dragon" version is meant as a reference the the dragon dance traditionally performed at Chinese New Year celebrations.

Both of these colorways will release in China on Oct. 1 for $130. The press release for the sneakers mentions a launch for the "Emerald" pair in North America on Oct. 1, with a global release to follow on Nov. 1.
