Another exciting week of NBA sneaker watching concludes with the latest installment of #SoleWatch Power Rankings.
On Monday, Indiana Pacers swingman Paul George became the league's latest signature athlete when Nike officially introduced his shoe, the PG 1. The launch was timed to coincide with the Pacers' trip to London, where Paul debuted the shoe on-court against the Denver Nuggets at the O2 Arena. Depending on the colorways Nike gives George for the remainder of the season, he may become a regular face in #SoleWatch.
Nike continued a huge week for its basketball category by announcing LeBron James' first official retro, the Air Zoom Generation. James wore his first ever sneaker in the "First Game" colorway to Friday's game against the Sacramento Kings, while teammate Iman Shumpert actually played in it. The Air Zoom Generation will return to retail on Jan. 25.
Read on to see how Nike's strong week shaped up this week's rankings.
