Release Date: January 24, 2020
UPDATE: Nike has officially unveiled Paul George’s PG 4 that comes with full-length Air unit.
A semi-transparent, mesh-zippered shroud fastens over the laces — a first in the Paul George line. It’s reminiscent of a classic look, pioneered by the Air Flight ’98, and provides a snug fit, revealing the gill-like speed lacing system underneath. For the PG4, the shroud provides a level of stylistic flexibility — laces can be worn within it or worn externally thanks to two lace holes near the shoe’s collar. Plus, the shroud allows for a bit of color dynamism, says Hardman.
“Paul likes to play with his laces over the shroud. During play, the mesh is a window into the color choices,” the designer says. “It’s when the shoe is unzipped that you can see the range of combinations added by the laces. Between the upper colorways and the lacing colors beneath the mesh, players can make the look their own.”
The Nike PG 4 will officially release in China on January 8th, followed by a US date set for January 24th.
