Nike PG 2 “OKC” Detailed Images

The Nike PG 2 was revealed this past weekend.  Odd that it was on a Saturday, but regardless the news of the newest Paul George sneaker is now out.  The “PlayStation” PG 2’s are set for next month, but the first images of these “OKC” PG 2’s are now out in detail.

As we all know, Paul George has the option to be a free agent this Summer 2018.  Until then however, the 4-time All-Star remains in Oklahoma City with Russel Westbrook contending for that Western Conference Finals spot.  Obviously, the biggest prize is an NBA championship and hopefully he gets to do it in style in the Nike PG 2.

The design of the Nike PG 2 is along the lines of his first signature sneaker the PG 1.  The PG 1 became an favorite amongst his peers and fans alike.  Many players like John Wall and Gary Harris are only a couple of NBA players who rocked the PG 1 religiously throughout the season so far.

Nike designer Tony Hardman,  This new design strays away from the strap but includes a set of “dynamic wings” in the forefoot allowing for the same containment.  They also switched the Zoom bag from the bottom to the top allowing the foot to sit right above the new 10mm Zoom bag for ultimate responsiveness and bounce.  This is great as most of the Zoom bags today are bottom loaded having a bit of foam in between the foot and the cushion.  Nike removed the bootie construction and instead went with a more traditional tongue.  Many people had issues with getting them on so this definitely would help a lot.  Lastly, the traction has also received an upgrade with a full 360 degree zonal coverage for any type of player.  Not that the PG 1 was bad, but the PG 2’s are definitely looking to go beyond what they had the first time around.

This Nike PG 2 “OKC” colorway is done in the familiar Blue and Orange hits are seen throughout the colorway with a full on White/Orange outsole.  You get suede on the side medial panels and also the tongue.  A construction upper is also featured giving the sneaker a lightweight yet flexible ride for the user.

The Nike PG 2 “OKC” will be retailer for $110.00 USD at most Nike retailers and will release February 24, 2018.  Keep it locked here for more and stay tuned for our performance review of the PG 1 and of course the PG 2 when it drops.

 

Nike Basketball Unveils the Nike PG 2 “PlayStation”

Following largely positive reviews on his first Nike signature model, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George is looking to have the same success with the upcoming Nike PG2.  This model has been rumored about for upwards of a year, and sample images were floating around the internet for some time, however Nike and the All-Star California native have finally revealed what everyone has been waiting for.

The first color way that is set to release is a rather interesting and surprising one.  Sony and Nike have joined forces to put an interesting twist on a basketball sneaker.  To start, the “Playstation” PG2 is done up in a mostly black and navy upper, a multicolored speckled midsole and a clear outsole.  Similar to the PG1, the PG2 is done in a low-top cut, with forefoot zoom, as well as a nontraditional outsole traction pattern.  The forefoot strap, one of the more popular aspects of the PG1, is absent from the PG2 so we will have to see how hoopers respond to the changed aspect of lockdown.

Sony added their personal touches very minimally and subtly.  There are several green, pink, orange and blue hits throughout the shoe paying homage to the Playstation controller, as well as the same triangle, circle, square, and x pattern hidden in the gloss of the back panel.  The biggest Playstation hit is found on the left tongue, shown in a bright blue when the battery-powered light is turned on, and white when off.

The Nike PG2 “Playstation” is set to release February 10, 2018 for $110 in limited quantities.  We will keep you posted on the release information as it becomes available.
