Nike realized three OKC-inspired colorways for the PG1s

These new versions of Paul George's signature shoes, should close him to his new Thunder fans

Nike realized three OKC-inspired colorways for the PG1s These new versions of Paul George's signature shoes, should close him to his new Thunder fans

When Paul George arrived as a rookie at the Indiana Pacers, Roy Hibbert treated him like one. During his first week in the association, he made him walk the streets with a mascotte costume and a megaphone to convince people to go to the games. Just like Jerry West did when the Lakers moved from Minneapolis to Los Angles, to let people know that there was basketball in town.

 

Many time has passed, and his game evolved in a unique way, becoming the most improved player after just two seasons in the league. Then, he became the only one capable of facing LeBron James during playoffs, with big time plays, as he is a big time player. But in Paul George’s DNA the dominant chromosome is “competition”, and the trade which involved Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis in taking him to the Oklahoma City Thunder has motivated him even more than that terrible injury he suffered from Team USA.

The trade was a bit unexpected, but Nike, that maybe is the strongest brand on the sports market, created a campaign to get Thunder supporters closer to Paul, through the PG1. On NIKEiD, it’s possible to customize the shoe with multiple options of OKC colors. Of course, the shoe is very comfortable, with the perfect stability around the feet to create the perfect stop, to jump to the rim or shoot all of a sudden. Under the foot plant, the shoe offers a light and fast cushioning, for the quickest plays.

If you’re basketball fans, those are shoes that can’t miss in your collection, also because the kit from Palmdale, California, nicknamed “Young Trece”, will make a superb season, chasing his first NBA title.
