The Nike PG 2.5 "Fighter Jet" is yet another example of personalized design. Paul George's signature line has presented some interesting colorways. Each seems to be dedicated to some facet of the superstar's life.
In previous releases, we've seen some other personal motifs. George's love for fishing made an appearance on one drop. Yet another was dedicated to his appreciation for Fortnite.
The results of those inspirations were memorable aesthetics for an on-court banger. This time around, we might be getting the same sort of heat.
This colorway seems to be inspired by the stealthy look of military fighter jets. The most indicative element of this is the Steel Grey mesh base. The look is appropriate considering the shoe's performance and reputation. It's hardly heralded for its neutral design and mastery of color combinations.
The branding on Paul George's shoes is usually where a colorway's theme stands out. It's no different here as we see fighter jet style aesthetics on both the forefoot strap and midfoot suede panel.
For a pop of color, accents of lighter Green appear on the insole and lace eyelets.
Nike may have hit another home run with this colorway of the PG 2.5. The colors are also easier to enjoy when the shoe is built well.
The PG 2.5 presents nearly everything that a solid basketball sneaker needs. The upper is breathable, pliable, and durable. Rather than just being in a mesh construction, we also get varying overlays. The cushion set up is balanced with impact protection and court feel. You are protected on jumps without feeling like you're standing on a platform.
And, of course, there's that aggressive traction pattern. For changing speeds quickly - including stopping on a dime - there are few better options.
