The Nike PG3 in the hyped ‘NASA’ colorway is in-hand for a detailed look and review.
Three models in and it looks like Nike is up to its old trick again: charging more for less.
The Nike PG1 was a great shoe all-around, from its on-court performance to the materials used and its affordable retail price. The PG2, while not as nice from a material standpoint, were a slight upgrade in terms of tech: amount of Zoom Air and traction. However, the PG3 seems like a cheaper version of the PG2, something I wasn’t quite expecting.
Traction looks and feels like it’ll perform well, so no real worries there. But for an increased price of $120, the materials and craftsmanship are subpar compared to previous models.
Hopefully everything goes well during testing, but my first impression is a pure disappointment.
Did you buy a pair of the Nike PG3 ‘NASA’? If so, what are your thoughts and feels so far?
Stay tuned for a performance review in the coming weeks.
