Paul George Unveils the Nike PG 2.5 at E3 Fortnite Tournament

Rumors have been circling that Paul George would be receiving another signature sneaker before the summer was out. That sneaker, the now-unveiled Nike PG 2.5, should begin hitting retail very soon.

The shoe was debuted last night at Epic Games’ huge Fortnite tournament for E3 on the feet of Paul George (FYI: Epic Games pulled in $126 million just in the month of February thanks to Fortnite). The new build of George’s second signature shoe adds the strap from the PG 1 to the PG 2 to create the PG 2.5, and it’s an interesting look. Interestingly, the strap was left off the second model to accommodate athletes with wider feet.

According to @sneakerreporter, the Nike PG 2.5 will begin hitting retailers on June 30. Several colorways are coming — Black/Grey/Platinum, Royal/Blue/Green, and White/Red. The pair George was wearing yesterday is a general release, according to @sneakerreporter. There is no official word on the PG 2.5’s price point yet.

What do you think of the Nike PG 2.5? Is it the Paul George signature you wanted all along? Sound off in the comments.

  1. dang and i just bought the pg2 even though i thought that the missing strap was great on the pg1…
    can’t return them at this point unfortunately

  2. Really dig the 2’s. I’m even considering buying another NikeID pair since they added a ton of options recently and I can make my own ghetto version of the Playstation colorway. Not gonna lie though. These look like an improvement visually.
