Monday, Nike officially unveiled Paul George’s first signature shoe of his career, the PG1. The first silo has already been dubbed ‘2K,’ which makes a lot of sense considering it features an animated version of George on the insole. George is also the cover athlete for NBA 2k17, so the creation of such a colorway is likely to build even further off of his own marketability.
The silo will sport a forefoot strap that has an integrated Flywire technology, which should provide some of the best lockdown support we’ve ever gotten in a Nike basketball shoe. The outsole features a Zoom Air unit in the forefoot, as well as a multidirectional blade traction pattern for maximum court grip. The PG1 is constructed as a full-bootie to deliver a more snug fit (something we’ve seen a lot of lately, in most other signature shoes).
George will debut the PG1 on Thursday in his game against the Denver Nuggets, in London. The creation of the PG1 makes Paul George the fourth active NBA player with a signature shoe with Nike. He’s also the 21st NBA player to ever do so with the brand.
According to Nike, the suggested retail price for the PG1 is slated to be $110.
