Paul George and the Oklahoma City Thunder’s season may be over, but Nike and PG are still coming strong with the flavors for George’s fourth signature shoe, the Nike PG 3. The sentiment behind this latest release is strong. Dubbed the PG 3 ‘Paulette,’ this special colorway celebrates Mother’s Day and more specifically, PG’s mother, Paulette.
A dark, almost obsidian textile upper is contrasted by a Light Grey midsole and suede heel patch. The heel patch has the letter “P” embroidered, a nod to both Paul’s first name and his mother’s. Fuschia accents on the laces, tongue, eyelets and outsole give the colorway a softer, nice gender neutral touch. The insole of the shoe features a red ribbon. The ribbon is a symbol for stroke awareness. Paulette unfortunately suffered a stroke when Paul was just six years old. Since that time Paul has made it a personal mission of his to raise money and awareness for stroke’s and stroke survivors.
