Dominating on both ends of the court, Paul George is in the midst of a career year. His stellar play has him in the conversation for both MVP and Defensive Player of the Year. As George has reached new levels of efficiency on-court he wants the same for signature line. Asking Nike Footwear Designer Tony Hardman to make the PG3 faster. That’s asking what Hardman did, removing all unnecessary layers from the shoe. Instead focusing on three core principles. Traction (better grip, both ways), Fit (sleek and seamless), Weight (lighter, faster, softer). The three principles reflect George’s change in play since joining the Oklahoma City Thunder. This latest colorway comes subtly dressed in black with a white midsole. It’s all complemented by an ice blue sole.
