Paul George of the Oklahoma City Thunder has just introduced his 2nd generation of performance basketball shoes, the PG2 which promises to be a lot better than its previous signature shoe the PG1. The PG2 boasts of some elements that are taken from George’s love of video games, specifically the PlayStation 4. So don’t be surprised if you see starry graphic on the sock liner, light up Playstion tongue and Playstation button eyelets in the PG2.
The PG2 features a tighter lockdown than its predecessor complete with dynamic wings fully integrated at the forefoot. The redesign significantly improves overall fit while also eliminating some issues that were usually associated with extra-long straps. The new Paul George signature shoe also boasts of highly improved feedback and responsiveness. The Zoom Air unit at the forefoot was increased to about 10 millimeters, giving players the exceptional ability to propel themselves even higher. Significant improvements were also made in terms of the shoe’s overall grip especially on the hard court. For a game like basketball where sudden shift in body motion requires a firmly-planted foot it is essential that traction be optimum on the shoe. And this is delivered quite well by the PG2.
Overall, the PG2 promises to deliver performance on and off the court.
