In what would have been the biggest game of his career, Chris Paul watched Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals from the bench, sidelined by a strained hamstring suffered in Game 5. Cheering his Houston Rockets on in hopes of advancing to his first ever NBA Finals, Paul sat courtside wearing a never-before-seen pair of Air Jordan 10s.

The colorway, reminiscent of 2005's "Red Steel" release, seemingly draws inspiration from the Rockets' palette, boldly featuring red on the tongue, eyestay, laces and sole, while grey fills the lining, branding and stripes on the outsole.

As of now, these are exclusive to Paul, though a CP3-inspired Air Jordan 12 will reportedly release by year's end.
