Indiana Pacers’ star Paul George is the fourth active (Nike) player in the NBA to come out with his own signature shoe.
When you join the likes of LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, that’s a good thing. In this unique situation, we’ll let you be the judge of that.

You’ll have to click to see each individual picture to see the up close details, but, overall, this is one of the best shoes I’ve seen on the market in a while. PG13 is unveiling PG1 in London as the Pacers take on the Nuggets Thursday.
Nike had their technological description of PG1:
“It has distinctive forefoot strap anchored by Flywire cable loops providing a dynamic, contained feel, while a forefoot Zoom Air unit delivers low-profile, responsive cushioning. Also, the full-bootie construction delivers a snug fit, and the multi-directional scale-inspired blade traction provides impressive grip of the court.”
The best shoes are ones that are personalized and really show the unique features and creativity from the player. For example, included on this shoe is a bobber inspired lace lock that serves as a special nod to his favorite past-time, fishing. That’s great and gives us some cool insight into his life beyond the court.
But the feature that is getting the most attention is his passion for NBA2K. If you buy a pair of PG1, every morning you wake up and slip these puppies on you’ll be greeted by a PG13 mugshot. While I’m a huge fan of the game, the feature is somewhat creepy. Very unique, but definitely has a weird factor to it.
