The deeper we go into the 21st century, the more bells and whistles we have in our daily lives.
Cell phones are more powerful than the computers that put man on the moon back in the 60s. Even our fridges have internet access. Some sneakers tie themselves up via BlueTooth now. What a time to be alive.
But not everything has to be so flashy — some can just be a shout-out to where you’re from. Take, for example, the newest addition to Paul George’s signature lineup.
The Nike PG5 focuses on the basics: comfort, stability and traction, all important factors on the court, whether you’re in the NBA or playing at the park.
The PG5 brings back the full-length Nike Air Dot Weld Strobel cushioning used by the previous model in the line, supporting a low-top, lightweight upper.
The lacing system will keep your foot secure under the toughest of on-court situations, while grippy multidirectional traction on the outsole makes sure you stay where you want to be.
The ‘LA Drip’ colorway pays homage to Los Angeles, where George grew up and now calls home once more after stops in Indianapolis and Oklahoma City.
