The Nike PG 5 Receives an Official Unveiling
Release: 21 January 2021

The Nike PG 5 has received an official unveiling, confirming the next chapter in Paul George’s signature line. After leaks and whispers circulated earlier this month, Beaverton have shared official images of the new silhouette, as well as an insight into the design specifications. 

The central premise for the PG 5 is that comfort is the first step towards controlling pace when you’re on the basketball court. That’s why, according to Nike, ‘the full-length Nike Air Dot Weld Strobel cushioning of the PG 4 returns, now paired to a new lightweight, low-top profile. It’s all in service of silky-smooth movement across the floor, exemplified by the shoe’s namesake.’

Elsewhere, the PG 5 is built to cater for George’s dynamic two-way needs. Nike said, ‘The lacing system keeps the foot locked in and stable over the footbed, and the outsole features a multi-directional tread pattern to help provide stop-and-go traction during play’.

Debut pairs of the Nike PG 5 are expected to land on January 21 in the neat black and white colourway seen above.
