Nike PG 1 “Ferocity” Release Information

Debuting his first signature model this weekend, four-time All-Star Paul George and Nike Basketball gives us another colorway of the low-cut sneaker.   This second colorway comes dressed in true Indiana Pacer form dubbed, “Ferocity” by Nike Basketball.

Being an avid fisherman in the off-season, the PG 1 is reflects George’s passion for fishing.  The outsole traction pattern is inspired by fish scales providing multi-directional support on the hardwood.   The medial side of the left shoe has “5-1-15” inscribed to it honoring his daughters first birthday while the right shoe has his birthday, “5-2-90”.   On the right heel tab, there is a stripe representing the titanium rod used to repair Paul George’s right-leg injury during the Olympics exhibition in 2014.

As far as performance, the Nike PG 1 will use a Zoom Air unit in the forefoot for a low and responsive ride.  Nike Basketball usually uses heel Zoom in their basketball models, so the PG 1 clearly started off in the right direction.  A distinctive forefoot strap anchored by Flywire cables assures lockdown and containment for the player.  Paul George also wanted the silhouette to be as simple as possible resulting in such a clean simple look.

The PG 1 “Ferocity” will be available March 4, 2017 for a affordable price of $110.00 USD.   If you play NBA 2K17, the game has implemented the sneaker in gameplay and can be used for your MyPlayer effective today. You can view the video above.  We’ll have a performance review once we get hands on the sneaker on release, so stay tuned.
