A Brief History of the Nike PG Signature Line

About Nike Basketball

Although Nike started as a footwear running company, the Swoosh’s impact on hardwood can’t go unnoticed.

From Michael Jordan and the beginning of the Air Jordan line to the golden age of performance basketball in the mid to late ’90s, Nike Basketball has been at the top of the food chain.

Paul George became a member of the Nike signature shoe family in 2016 with the announcement of the Nike PG 1. While still a member of the Indiana Pacers, Paul George and the Nike PG 1 was released in the spring of 2017 with a retail price of $110.

From his years with the Oklahoma City Thunder to his current home with the Los Angeles Clippers, the Nike PG line continued to be a marquee model for the Swoosh with its various colorways, affordable price point, and subtle design differences that told a consistent story while still pushing design and performance benefits. 

The Nike PG line sticks out primarily because of collaborative releases with Playstation, 2K, and Hot Wheels thanks to Paul George’s love for video games and his inherit competitive nature. While each PG “Playstation” iteration holds its own weight, it’s hard to top the Nike PG 2 “Playstation” as the colorway teed up the launch for the second model in the Nike PG line.

As the Los Angeles Clippers forward recently announced the Nike PG 6, the signature line could be coming to an end as Paul George has been seen in Nike Kobes and past Nike PG models.
