The greatest time of the year is here. No, not Thanksgiving, I’m talking about college basketball!!
Nothing beats the atmosphere — bands playing, intense defense, kids living on mom and dad’s dime screaming how much the other team sucks, and kicks. This is when the team colorways really shine, and today we get a look at the Nike PG 1 for the Duke Blue Devils.
There had already been a royal/white colorway released back in September, but these, woooah, these are special — especially if you are a diehard Dukie (like yours truly). The ‘Away’ colorway features a black nubuck/mesh upper with royal trim and an embroiderer “D” on the heel (shown below).

The second pair, the ‘Home’, features a white leather heel and forefoot mesh with a serious gradient midsole that goes from blue in the heel to black under the toe. This build features the same Duke “D” branding on the heel.

Now for the bad news: according to sources at Nike, there are no plans to release either pair to the public, which means you and I will probably never see these on our feet (unless you are a top 20 senior in the class of 2018 that hasn’t signed yet). So, sorry.
Enjoy the photos and let us know which team you think will take home the Madness in March (well, April).
