Smooth & Steady
Paul George has an effortlessly smooth, reliably steady game. He takes his time, but he's always well-positioned to make the extra pass, cut through the lane, or nail a pull-up jumper. The PG 5 combines the agile low-top profile Paul likes with flexible Nike Air Dot Weld Strobel cushioning. The full-length Air unit is stitched directly to the upper, bringing the plush, bouncy cushioning right up under the foot—perfect for keeping PG feeling like he's moving on clouds.
CLOSE-UP, FLEXIBLE CUSHIONING
Lightweight, full-length Nike Air Dot Weld Strobel gives PG the cushioning and comfort he needs to thrive during a long season. Allover flexibility helps him transition smoothly between both ends of the court. The PG5 cushioning is so smooth, it gives you the feeling like you're walking on clouds.
The laces feed through bands along the side of the foot. Pulling the laces tight pulls the bands inward so they wrap over the foot to help keep it locked in and stable over the footbed.
The outsole uses a multidirectional tread pattern to provide stop-and-go traction and control on the court.
