We believe in strong women. As the originators of the #ChicksOnFire hashtag, we’re fans of these “girlbosses” who pave their own way, shaping culture, creating the future, inspiring their communities and demonstrating what it means to embody this mentality. For them, the FORCE IS FEMALE and Nike is recognizing this because fearless women inspire all of us daily to not live within the lines.
Nike has taken the lid off the Nike PG 1, Paul George’s signature shoe debut with Nike Basketball, via a press release. After a brief tease earlier this morning, the All-Star will rock the NBA 2K colorway – highlighting his turn as this year’s cover athlete for the video game – on Thursday, January 12 at the O2 Arena in London when the Indiana Pacers take on the Denver Nuggets. He will join the likes of Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and LeBron James as active Nike Basketball signature athletes.
The lightweight low-cut sneaker follows George’s preferences and was designed by Tony Hardman, known for his work on the Nike Zoom Run The One and the Nike Hyperchase, the latter of which was worn by George extensively. Signature details on the shoe include a bobber lace lock that was inspired by George’s fishing hobby, his jersey number on the heel and more. For the 2K colorway, the PG 1 will feature a unique sockliner that has George’s video game likeness.
