Speaking of Paul George , he was hurt in the training , but he has made a late-season push to capture that ever elusive All-NBA honor ,this is a miracle which in everybody mind. Now I believe that the Nike PG 1 is the best basketball shoe they’ve ever played.
So today we got the PG1, the 21st signature line for the brand.
When the first images surfaced after open the box , we saw a very basic, lower-tier shoe in black and white. Nike PG 1 TS PROTOTYPE EP , it is not a bad looking shoe, but not really a signature look.
Nike PG 1 also called ‘SHINING’, ‘TIME TO SHINE ‘, we can see from the box which print ‘Paul George ’ with creamy-white and blue similar the cloud pattern . The design of box is very meticulously .
PG1 did not use the bright color , but only black and bright swoosh. However it also popular for attention by passing ,the same as Paul . This shoes is designed by Tony harman and Paul George , George is a high demand for shoes players, so the shoes also meet a lot of George’s request.
George loved the Nike zoom crusader before and he like the full length bootie .so Nike PG1 just follow the zoom crusader with full length bootie .
The strip is popular some year ago , and Nike brand utilized this design in almost his shoes , seems a little of his fans , but Paul have new design for strip which connect with the flywire , this is difference with last version of Nike brand . And also it is improve the support for forefoot . For material , PG1 feature solid rubber — what I’d recommend over the translucent options — while highlighting the cushion within the midsole by changing the color of the rubber in that particular section.
As one of series pf ‘time to shine’ , Nike PG 1 Ferocity used bright swoosh ,but will be swoosh.
This is one of the best material options we’ve had from Nike Basketball in a long time. The forefoot is free feeling with the open mesh and it’s protected by a layer of fuse in the high wear areas. This is great for players that stay on their toes and do not enjoy breaking in shoes.
And i have to say the upper used nubucks and leathers which construct a sneaker . The overall build feels great .
For support ,The traditional support features are in place and work moderately well but, it’s the shoe’s midsole sculpting that is doing most of the heavy lifting. This midsole cups your foot and it’s something I feel is very beneficial for players, will feel free and the shoes seems it is a part of your feet
