Paul George Joins Nike’s Elite with the PG1

Getting your own signature sneaker is a dream for millions of young basketball players, but one that only becomes a reality for an elite few. It’s one of the most exclusive clubs in the world of sports, and it is so rare that in Nike’s 44-year history less than one percent of Nike athletes have received a signature shoe.

Now, Paul George joins Nike’s elite by becoming the brand’s fourth active signature athlete, alongside LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving – and only the 21st basketball player to ever receive a signature shoe from Nike.

The PG1 blends George’s personality and performance attributes with a lightweight, low-cut style and nods toward his off-court interests. The simple silhouette is focused on functionality with a distinctive forefoot strap and Flywire cable loops for a dynamic, locked-down feel, while a Zoom Air unit adds responsive cushioning. The shoe also features a full-bootie construction for a snug fit and multi-directional, scale-inspired blade traction for ultimate court grip.

The PG1 drops on March 4 for $109.99. Stay locked on Eastbay’s social channels for more information on future colorways.
