About to months ago in April, there was an appeareance by this sneaker and it went lowkey viral on social media. Now that may be a stretch, but once it was seen, it was instantly favorited and Liked on Instagram and Facebook platforms. Since then, there has been little to no info on this upcoming sneaker from Paul George until today. With an Olive and Orange silhouette, it was dubbed UNDFTD early on, but now we discover it to be the Element edition for the Nike PG 1.
Olive and Orange on sneakers institute the UNDFTD brand immediately to the sneakerhead community. First seen on the Air Jordan 4 UNDFTD, Air Jordan 5, and the KD IV, we now have a special edition for the PG 1. Named the PG 1 Elements, this edition has a Grey speckled midsole and Black outsole. Sitting atop is a similar Olive upper covering the midfoot strap, toe area, suede, and laces. Orange is visible on the last lace hole, PG logo branding on the tongue, Flywire, and right underneath the strap as well.
One of my only gripes with the PG 1 is the materials used on the main side panels for the PG 1. On this sneaker it is a complete hairy suede meaning it’ll get damaged pretty easily. It is also hard to maintain so for those who are looking to hoop in this sneaker, have to take note of this. In my opinion, this is easily the best looking colorway for the PG 1 yet. Since its first images surfaced, it instnatly became a top favorite release for the year. And to think that this will be only $110.00 at retail is amazing.
The PG 1 has performed very well so far and our certified Kicksologists performance review will be up soon.
Dropping on June 16, 2017 for $110,00 USD, the Nike PG 1 Elements will be released at your local Nike retailer.
