Paul George’s arrival as a superstar was clear as day when he got the cover of NBA 2K17. His new status crystalized even more with reports of the huge payday coming his way. The only thing left for Paul George to do was get a signature sneaker, which could be happening soon.
All indications are that the sneaker in the photo up top could be the All-Star’s very first silhouette.
Check out the flywire in the midfoot, a staple of recent Nike sneakers. The strap, which has been seen in the KD 7, Kyrie 2 and Soldier X recently, is also a modern Nike favorite. And of course PG’s logo on the tongue is also a pretty big clue.
Reports suggest these could be ready for retail by March 2017, if this is actually the PG1. Keep it locked for official confirmation on release dates and pricing.
