Nike and Paul George debuted his first signature shoe, the PG1, in London where the Indiana Pacers are set to play the Denver Nuggets.
George becomes Nike Basketball’s fourth active signature athlete, and the 21st basketball player to receive a signature shoe from Nike.
Blending George’s smooth personality with performance attributes, the PG1 is tailored to PG13’s two-way game.
The lightweight, low cut PG1 is a true collaboration between George and designer Tony Hardman. The simple, highly functional silhouette features a distinctive forefoot strap anchored by Flywire cable loops providing a dynamic, contained feel, while a forefoot Zoom Air unit delivers low-profile, responsive cushioning.
The first colorway of the PG1 is aptly named “2K” which connects to his love of gaming and his status as cover athlete of the game NBA 2K17. The shoe’s bobber inspired lace lock serves as a special nod to his other favorite pastime – fishing.
No updates yet as to when it will become available in the Philippines and what the retail price will be. Stay tuned.
