The Nike PG 5, Paul George’s fifth signature model and the follow up to last year’s solid but not well-rounded Nike PG 4, is here for a detailed look.
The Nike PG 4 focused on cushioning with the first-ever full-length Air Strobel but didn’t have great support or containment. Did Nike Basketball redesign the PG 5 return it to the days when George’s shoes were super stable? Click play above get Chris’ full first impressions and an on-foot view.
What’s in the video?
In the video, Chris provides detailed information from all the usual categories, providing the in depth information you need. He supplies expert level opinions on the materials, cushioning, traction, support, and fit. Here’s some of what he discusses:
- Return of the greatest traction ever?
- Jordan 7 or Puma RS-X esque midsole
- Dual density, thick insole
- Return of the Air strobel
- Synthetic upper
- Sizing recommendations
As an added bonus, Mrs. Wing tells us why she likes the traction, and it’s, uh, different than what you might expect.
