Nike unveils Paul George's first signature shoe

Nike unveils Paul George's first signature shoe. Dubbed as PG 1, it sports a low-cut profile with a combination of mesh and some overlays for the upper. You can also see a forefoot strap which helps provide a snug fit. For lockdown, adaptive Flywire lacing system was used for better containment. A lace lock that resembles a bobber which is a nod to Paul George's love for fishing can also be seen to help you secure your laces. Even the shoe's sockliner has a graphic in it which is his image used in the NBA 2k series. For cushioning, forefoot Zoom Air was used for a responsive and low-to-ground feel. A multi-directional traction pattern can be seen underneath to accommodate various movements in court. Overall, the shoe looks promising and the only thing that somewhat bothers me would be any instability issues underneath. The Zoom Air is bottom loaded and looks a bit recessed. If the Phylon foam used is too dense, this might not compress very well and might make the shoe be wobbly a bit. I just with that the foam carrier would be soft enough to accommodate better compression of the Zoom bag to create a flat base. These are just my thoughts and I haven't tested them personally so it is just my initial impression so to speak. No word yet in terms of exact release date but they will be priced at $110.
