After signing a four-year, $190 million USD contract extension to remain a member on the Los Angeles Clippers roster, Paul George re-routes our attention to his footwear lineage to unveil his impending Nike PG 4 “Christmas” colorway. The fresh batch of NBA regular season games are in place to start later this month, and given that the Clippers are scheduled to battle it out on the court against the Denver Nuggets come Christmas day, it’s more than likely that you’ll spot the All-Star small forward lacing these up.

Let’s dive into its holiday-influenced design shall we? Right away, one can notice the Swoosh team here opted to substitute the traditional lateral-sided mesh materials for a crimson-dyed velvet fabric in an effort to best translate a Santa Claus suit. Its zip-up exterior shell also incorporates thin white embroidery across its tonal Swoosh on the lateral side — a potential nod to candy canes — in addition to ventilated white mesh constructions on the medial. “Green Apple” accents sprinkle to the zippers, heel signatures and midsole molds on the outside, as well as on the interior layer and sock liners in which they are more pronounced.

For added holly jolly flair, the insoles are decorated with a remixed version of PG’s logo that is ornamented with multi-colored Christmas lights.

Retailers like Afew have these dropping on December 19 for $120 USD, but also expect them to release via Nike and other retailers.
