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.
