Reward fans by transforming the shoe-buying process.

Striking Control: The CP3.IX-Bit Game: an interactive mobile web game became the access point for their latest signature shoe from NBA superstar, Chris Paul.

Players guide Chris through a retro-coloured, stormy cityscape as he dodges lightening bolts cast down by the collective power of Twitter.

Fun, entertaining, and challenging. By transforming the shoe-buying process, true fans were rewarded for engaging with the brand.

Through a unique partnership with Twitter, fans can also tweet a lightning emoji with #StrikingControl – which become in-game lightning strikes to stop competitors in their tracks.
