About Paul George
Paul George is a super star NBA player that plays for the Indiana Pacers. George has become one the more popular NBA players in the league and has also been in the MVP discussion the last couple of years. He is a four-time all-star and has been on the All-NBA team for offense and the All-Defensive team over his career. Paul played two seasons of college basketball at Fresno State, then entered the NBA draft and was the 10th overall pick in 2010. Paul was at the height of his career, then he suffered a gruesome broken leg when playing for the USA Olympic team in 2014. He has since then made a full recovery and is back to playing the type of basketball since the injury.
Paul signed an endorsement deal with Nike and is the newest Nike athlete to be getting his own signature sneaker this year. It had been speculated the Paul was going to be getting his own sneaker, but those speculations came to a halt due to the injury that he suffered in 2014. Before Nike had revealed that Paul was getting his own shoes, he was one of the main endorsers from some of Nike Basketball shoes like the Hyperrev, Hyperdunk, HyperLive, and even wore some of Kobe Bryant’s shoes.
The Nike PG1 is the name of Paul George’s first signature basketball sneaker. He is now one of the twenty-one Nike athletes with a signature sneaker. As of right now, the Nike PG1 is set to make its debut here in the next couple of months for a retail price of $110. It will be available at most sneaker retail store. It is a low top sneaker which is what Paul personally prefers to play in. Some of the features of the Nike PG1 are:
- Forefoot strap with Flywire technology loop system provides adaptive support
- Zoom Air unit under the forefoot and plush sock liner provides responsive cushioning
- Full-bootie construction delivers a snug, 1-to-1 fit
- Multidirectional scale-inspired blade traction provides ultimate court grip
The Nike PG1 looks like it is going to be a good performing basketball shoe and is decently priced. The Nike PG1 is definitely a nice-looking basketball shoe. I plan on purchasing a pair for myself when they finally come out. Let me know how you feel about the Nike PG1 and if you plan on buying yourself a pair when they release.
