Paul George‘s love for the outdoors is well known, with Nike Basketball having frequently referenced the Los Angeles Clippers‘ forward’s passion for fishing via his signature line in years past. Now, George’s PG 4 is heading to the great outdoors, but this time in tribute to something different — Nike ACG product. Dubbed the “PCG,” George’s latest Nike shoe features technical construction and a cleverly flipped logo for a look that’s equal parts hoops and hiking.

The upper’s outermost layer is a translucent black sheath that’s made of two materials. Lateral sides equip a semi-translucent gridded TPE, and the medial sides use standard sporty mesh. This covers a bright red neoprene sockliner and skeleton-style lacing system, mixing tones both murky and vibrant in traditional ACG fashion. Further pops of red appear via toebox and midfoot Swooshes, plus pull tabs and various details on the aforementioned sheath’s zip closure.

Heels provide the signature stamp: a triangular ACG logo badge that’s been altered to read “PCG.” This clever logo flip is somewhat reminiscent of the style used on 2018’s COMME des GARÇONS x Nike ACG Mowabb. Down below, midsoles are dressed in an earthy brown hue and feature a plethora of dotted detailing. Cushioning is provided by an Air Strobel system, an innovative technology that places a full-foot Air unit directly under the insole for maximum responsiveness and feel. Brown and black outsoles finalize the style.

The Nike PG 4 “PCG” will release via Nike SNKRS Korea on May 1, and see a stateside arrival at retailers Foot Locker on May 14. The price is set at $110 USD.
