Paul George's newest Nike PG 4 sneakers were officially unveiled in January, which means it should be just about time for a reveal of the Clippers star's fifth signature model.
With no official info making the rounds as of yet, an early leak of what is said to be the Nike PG 5 has surfaced. Shared by the basketball-focused account @sneakerhighway23, the new model is seen in a subdued black and white based colorway with hits of peach and orange.
Based on this early preview, the model appears to have more in common with the PG 2 and PG 3 than its immediate predecessor. The upper of the new shoe features a support wing at the front, along with a midsole that is uncharacteristically thick for a George sneaker. Down below, there's a wavy topography-esque traction pattern along with George's logo.
Check back soon for updates on the PG 5 including release date and tech details.
UPDATE (12/22): Nike has officially unveiled George's next signature shoe, the Nike PG 5. Building from the PG 4, the full-length Nike Air Dot Weld Strobel cushioning is making its return, while the low-cut upper boasts a mesh-based construction and a lacing system that helps keep the foot secured over the footbed. Capping off the look is a multi-directional tread pattern on the outsole to help with stop-and-go actions on the court.
The Nike PG 5 debuts in the black and white colorway in North America on Jan. 21, 2021, followed by the blue and orange colorway dropping in North America on Feb. 12 and in spring 2021 throughout Greater China.
