AFTER the good reception it got for the first signature shoe of National Basketball Association star Paul George, Nike Basketball is set to launch the PG2 in the country next month.
Worn recently by the Oklahoma City Thunder forward, the PG2 features a traditional tongue construction and “dynamic wings” at the forefoot.
The wings try to mimic a similar level of lockdown seen on the strap in the PG1, but improves on the overall fit.
Underfoot features include an increased Zoom Air unit that is now 10 millimeters, which gives that extra bounce directly beneath the soles of his feet.
Taking inspiration from Mr. George’s passion for video games, one of the shoe’s first colorways is dubbed “PlayStation,” which boasts of a light-up tongue, starry graphic, and distinct access code on the heel.
“Players are going to get everything they loved in the PG1 plus a lot more [in this second shoe],” said the Thunder forward of the latest iteration of his signature shoe.
The PG2 will be available in select Nike stores and Titan branches for P5,795. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
