When Paul George's first signature sneaker released, he made sure to supply his teammates with pairs. He says that they've been appreciative, writing in a first-person piece via Nike that reviews from his fellow Indiana Pacers have been overwhelmingly positive.

"The best compliment has been from teammates saying it’s hands-down the best shoe they’ve ever played in," George writes.

Pacers forward Georges Niang expressed gratitude for the footwear gift back in March, posting his personal pair on Instagram.


Shoutout @ygtrece for hooking us all up with his new shoe! #PG1 #cloudwalking

Even former teammates have enjoyed complimentary pairs—George Hill, now with the Jazz, posted a pair on his Instagram a couple weeks back.

The Nike PG1, designed by Tony Hardman, made its retail debut in March with the "Shining" colorway. The latest colorway, the "Chalk Burst," released on Thursday here.
