In the PG5, Comfort is the First Step Toward Control

December 22, 2020 - The PG5 explores the idea that comfort is the first step to controlling pace on the basketball court. That’s why the full-length Nike Air Dot Weld Strobel cushioning of the PG4 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, Paul George.  

Other features of the PG5 support George’s two-way needs: 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.

The black and white colorway of the PG5 releases January 21 in North America. The blue LA Drip colorway releases beginning February 12 in North America.

March 28, 2016 - Last year Nike released the Air Max Zero, Tinker Hatfield's original Air Max design, which eventually became the Nike Air Max 1. Though the idea for the shoe was put to paper 29 years ago, its first real-life manifestation incorporated nearly three decades of Nike Air innovation. It may not have been the first Nike Air Max, but without it, the Nike Air Max 1 would not exist.
