Nike and Oklahoma City Thunder’s Paul George return with second signature sneaker for the multiple All-Star.
The PG2 is designed by Tony Hardman, who keep things simple by removing the midfoot strap seen on the Nike PG1. For the update, we see “dynamic wings” at the forefoot for lockdown, while ditching the previous bootie construction for a more traditional look.
A Zoom Air unit has also been increased to 10 millimeters for heightened response and propulsion, while traction is improved via the sole’s outrigger and overall dynamic pattern.
The Nike PG2’s inaugural colorway is inspired by George’s love for gaming. Loyal to the Sony PlayStation, the sneaker sports a light up tongue, speckled midsole, starry insole graphic and subtle button graphics.
Nike also worked alongside the PlayStation team for the sneaker’s detailing. The starry graphic will also available for your personal PS4, thanks to a code that comes with the sneaker.
Paul George debuted the Nike PG2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night (Jan. 20).
The Nike PG2 “PS2” drops Feb. 10 at select Nike Basketball retailers.
