Nike has taken the wraps off its new signature shoe for Indiana Pacers star Paul George, Nike Basketball's fourth active signature athlete, and just the 21st basketball player to receive a signature shoe from the Swoosh. Said to be a true collaboration between George and designer Tony Hardman, the new Nike PG1 is made for George's two-way game, featuring a forefoot strap anchored by Flywire cable loops for adaptive support. Additional performance benefits include a Zoom Air unit under the forefoot and a plush sockliner for responsive cushioning ; full-bootie construction for a snug, 1-to-1 fit; and multidirectional scale-inspired blade traction for enhanced grip. George will debut the PG1 this Thursday, January 12, when the Indiana Pacers square off against the Denver Nuggets in London.
The kicks retail for $110. Stay tuned for word on a release date.
