"THE FOREFOOT LOCK-IN ALLOWS ME TO CUT AND BE AT DIFFERENT ANGLES AND POSITIONS, AND STILL RESPOND THE RIGHT WAY". Paul George

BEHIND THE DESIGN:
PG2
Despite the change in scenery, Paul George's two-way needs on the court haven't changed. With this in mind, footwear designer Tony Hardman built on the success of the PG1 with a shoe that goes even further to emphasise the small forward's smooth game.

INSTANT OFFENCE Hardman and his team wanted to give PG more responsiveness under his forefoot by increasing the size of the Nike Zoom Air to 10mm. "We kept the plush sockliner from the PG1 to maintain the step-in comfort, but the Zoom bag sits directly under that, and goes all the way to the rubber—so he's right on top of it".

LOCKDOWN DEFENCE Paul George's game requires a shoe with a super-snug, supportive feel. To enhance support, Hardman added a stretch zone in the forefoot, which adapts to PG's foot as he moves. Then he added dynamic wings over the top of the stretch zone for even more support. "It creates a nice hug, similar to the PG1", Hardman says, "but also eliminates the issues with narrow feet, when the strap was hanging over too far".
