Stable secue lockdown

Nike decided to forego the forefoot strap that was used in the PG1. Instead, the new dynamic wing design of the Nike PG2 keeps your forefoot secure and locked in.

Paul George's signature style

Nike designer Tony Hardman returned to create the second iteration of Paul George’s signature sneaker. During the design process, George and Hardman came up with five guidelines to ensure that the Nike PG2’s influence extends to both basketball and sneaker culture.

The PG2 now boasts a sleeker design than its predecessor. Without the prominent forefoot strap, these signature Nike basketball shoes allow you to be faster on your feet.
