First Look: Paul George’s Nike Signature Shoe

paul george signature shoe teaser

With Kobe retired, it was expected that Nike would add another signature athlete to join LeBron, KD and Kyrie. The Swoosh is confident that Paul George of the Pacers is the right guy for the job.

No one who has ever seen Paul play will ever question his game or potential, but does he deserve his own signature right now? Are kids around the world trying to mimic their game after Paul? Nike thinks so.

Paul George took to IG to tease his first Nike signature shoe. He didn’t reveal more info, but he did say, “more to come from London…” A full first look at the Nike PG 1 should surface soon.

What’s your thoughts on PG getting his own shoe? Do you think he’s a signature shoe athlete?

UPDATE: Nike unveils the PG 1 which will release Spring 2017 for $110.

    I think PG, Lavin and Derozen should just keep the Kobe line alive.

    Stop delaying the inevitable, Just give Simmons a pair already

    ? Who?

    Aight, ray p…(oops..) i mean…G-Roc! Is this the OOOOOONLY pic of the shoe that’s available? Doubt it. But if it is, then we just dont need to see a pic of only HALF of ONE shoe.
    And, hell no . ..Paul George is not sig shoe-worthy. He’s a good player, not a great one though. He aint even top 5 at his position.

  • Executive aka Dark Wolf

    Teasers aren’t needed cuh.

  • sirfresh

    This shoe definitely has some type of strap and low cut. Not sure if I’m feeling the side of the shoe

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won

    My man ?

  • Flizip420

    G-rock u late they already have the whole shoe on nicekicks

  • Well seeing you left this comment 15 mins ago and this original post was published hours ago… and Nike just sent the press release out – I guess I am late. lol

  • DJR

    I’m happy for PG especially after his injury it’s nice to see him get a sig. I definitely don’t think he’s a sig athlete though. To me you have to dominate the position and also be a champion. Also Nike messed up by letting Harden go and other players that are more deserving than PG.

  • Executive aka Dark Wolf

    Looks like a $720 Nike?

  • Executive aka Dark Wolf

    They look like a futuristic old man shoe.

  • LOL! That’s the FIRST thing I thought. Same people who called the Hyperadapt ugly are saying the PG 1s are fire. I was so confused. lol

  • Lol stop! The teaser was the only thing available at the time but the news about his shoe was the point of the post. Images unveiled and post updated.

  • Yep! Not sure PG was the man to give a sig to, but what the heck do I know?!

  • Dior Brown

    Prepare for these to hit the outlets like them Westbrooks..Lol..But salute to PG for the kicks

  • PsychadelicSavage

    Okay wow, these are actually fire. and only $110???

  • Executive aka Dark Wolf

    Hahaha! They’re both ugly to me.

  • PsychadelicSavage

    Personally always thought the Hyperadapt was a nice chill shoe, but not for that price. These look more like a Kobe 5.5 than a Hyperadapt though

  • javi

    Relax hype!

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won

    ?Mmmmm hmmm. Mmm-kay, mmm-kay

  • El Kinito

    I really don’t know why the hell Nike decide to to put the Velcro strap in all the sneakers that are coming out. Please we don’t need more Velcro straps.

  • javi

    Mmmmm-huype, Mmmmm-hype?

  • Thad Greer

    Maybe I’m blind, but I’m not seeing that many similarities between the two. It looks like they actually put some effort into the design, whereas the hyperadapt looks like a thrown together wear test sneaker with LA Gear lights.

  • Slam

    Nooooooooooooooooo we don’t need a knockoff KD 7!

  • tblaque82

    Lol don’t worry his sig will eventually take off but after lebron retires cuz he got no chance in hell making it outta the east until bron gone

  • tblaque82

    Congrats pg in saying that that sig should have went to Anthony Davis

  • El Fenomeno

    good first shoe

  • Heezyholly

    Word ad be getting it in and no official sig yet

  • These are pretty chill with a decent msrp. Not bad Nike.

  • russellerving

    I like it. It looks simple, yet sleek and comfortable.

  • Purple PieGAWD

    I do have to give Nike credit. Prices are good for signature sneakers. I do want to give this shoe a chance.

  • 804east

    you do know the yeezy strap idea came from one of nikes signature shoes so I’d say its a bo strap or a sc trainer strap. and it works just fine for this shoe plus added support. Im guessing the athletes want the strap because every sig player has one if not multiple editions with straps.

  • 804east

    This is a clean mcfly colorway. Definitely a good looking hoop shoe. I need to see em on foot wit some jeans

  • 804east

    You agree wit that tho? Paul George was the next big star before his injury. People forget he gave LeBron major problems in the ’14 ecf (took em to 6 games wit lance Stephenson as is sidekick and avg 24 ppg). I feel like I remember nike talkin about his sig shoe and then scrapping it after he lost his leg that summer.

  • YallStillMad LeBron’Em Won

    Yeah, oh he “took em to 6 games” a’ight….After they spent all off-season 2013 thru the end of the 2014 season talkin about….and eventually getting….home-court advantage, they still got that ass whooped. I figured he and his team deserved that beating after they wanted to satisfy the media’s “anti-Miami/LeBron” fix by letting them know that they’re just as much against LeBron as the media was.

    They look good to me, especially that side shot of the soles, look like gemstone
