Paul George and Nike have officially introduced his fourth signature sneaker – the Nike PG4 – which will make its retail debut in a simple black and white colorway. Other colorways have not yet been announced but word on the street suggests that there’s at least one Gatorade edition on the horizon.
NIKE PG 4 RELEASE DATE
Look for the Nike PG 4 to release on January 24th at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $110 USD.
A semi-transparent, mesh-zippered shroud fastens over the laces — a first in the Paul George line. It’s reminiscent of a classic look, pioneered by the Air Flight ’98, and provides a snug fit, revealing the gill-like speed lacing system underneath. For the PG4, the shroud provides a level of stylistic flexibility — laces can be worn within it or worn externally thanks to two lace holes near the shoe’s collar. Plus, the shroud allows for a bit of color dynamism, says Hardman.
“Paul likes to play with his laces over the shroud. During play, the mesh is a window into the color choices,” the designer says. “It’s when the shoe is unzipped that you can see the range of combinations added by the laces. Between the upper colorways and the lacing colors beneath the mesh, players can make the look their own.”
The Nike PG 4 will officially release in China on January 8th, followed by a US date set for January 24th.
