The PG1 featured complete lockdown, serious forefoot Zoom (no rectangle!!), killer traction, and lux materials — everything came together to make the shoe a top pick for budget-minded ballers. The design also transferred to casual with no effort, as the low cut and the strap look great on-court and in the streets.
Now, images of a supposed PG2 have surfaced, and, well, sometimes change is a good thing. Gone is the forefoot strap, as well as the luxury materials found on the heel and midfoot of the PG1 (although depending on colorway those could make an appearance).
Now, the shoe appears to feature a full-length mesh with fused areas around the toebox on both the medial and lateral sides. There is also fuse around the eyelets for strength. The cut remains a low-mid, so range of motion is still there. We have no images of the sole or traction pattern yet so we can’t be sure about the size of the Zoom or if it is heel, or heel/forefoot, or full-length. We tried to get the designer to give us some insight, but rightfully so, he declined — too soon!
Let us know below what you think of this possible PG2. Better? Worse than the PG1? What would you like to see carry over from the PG1 that was left behind? Drop bombs below and let us know. As always, as soon as we can, we will bring more info.
