Amid rumors that he could be signing a one plus one deal with the OKC Thunder, Paul George has another signature shoe coming soon. The Nike PG 2.5 is nearly identical to the PG 2, save for one big difference.
The Nike PG 2.5 has the strap from the PG 1! The shoe initially kept off that strap to accommodate widefooters who had a hard time wearing the PG 1 (which was a great shoe at a great price). Now, the PG 2.5 gets the strap, and many of us at WearTesters think its dramatically improves the look of the PG 2.
Regardless of whether the Nike PG 2.5 is exactly what hardcore fans wanted or one of the best recycling jobs the Swoosh has ever pulled off, the leaks are coming faster (although Paul George seems to love the PG 2.5). The shoe hasn’t received official release information yet, but if @gc911 has grabbed detailed photos then it will be hitting retail soon.

If the Nike PG 2.5 stays at the same $110 price point as the PG 2 and PG 1, will you pick it up? Let us know in the comments below.
