There are a lot of great players but not many can say they have their own shoes. Rights ike that are reserved for the Kobe’s Micheal’s and LeBron’s of the word.

The latest addition to the Nike signature shoe family is a extra-lightweight, low-cut silhouette, with forefoot strap anchored by Flywire loops which is a design feature we don’t see too often from the factory that Phil Knight built. To top it off like a cherry on a Chick Fil A milkshake the shoe’s forefoot contains a Zoom Air unit and the whole shoe is locked down by a single piece bootie for extra comfort and control.
The appearance of the laces and lace locks are inspired by George’s other passion, fishing and is meant to look like a bobber and the debut colorway is called the “2K” for Paul George’s love of gaming which is perfectly timed with his appearance on the cover of NBA 2K17.
