Nike PG 5 Performance Review

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. Update: Performance Review now available (see video).

Nike PG 5

Colorway: Black/White/Barely Green/Multi-Color

Release Date: January 21, 2021

Style Code: CW3143-001

Price: $110

The Nike PG 4 focused on cushioning with the first-ever full-length Air Strobel but didn’t have great support or containment. The PG 5s foam carrier is stiffer than the PG 4s, and is detrimental to the shoes comfort. The shoe’s comfort can be boosted easily with Move insoles. 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.

Let us know your opinion on the PG 5 on YouTube or Twitter.
