Pacers guard Paul George has finally reached signature status at Nike with the release of his first-ever shoe, the PG1. Designed for PG’s versatility on both sides of the floor, the PG1 features a low cut silhouette with a forefoot strap and zoom air unit also along the forefoot for low profile, responsive cushioning. The first colorway comes in a light grey upper with reflective multicolor hits along the swoosh which is inspired by PG’s love for gaming and his ties with the 2K17 game. A unique sockliner also features Paul George’s 2K17 rendered image in full color. Check out the details of the Nike PG1 below and read more about the story behind the design.
Release details to follow soon.
In Nike’s 44-year history, fewer than one percent of its endorsed athletes have been given a signature shoe.
Joining one of the most exclusive clubs in all of sport, Paul George will debut his first signature shoe, the PG1, this week on an international stage as Indiana plays Denver in London on Thursday, January 12.
He 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.
Specific performance benefits of the PG1 include:
Forefoot strap with Flywire technology loop system provides adaptive support
Zoom Air unit under the forefoot and plush sockliner provide responsive cushioning
Full-bootie construction delivers a snug, 1-to-1 fit
Multidirectional scale-inspired blade traction provides ultimate court grip
