To start 2020, Paul George and Nike Basketball will launch his fourth signature shoe, the PG 4.
Shown is what is believe to be the first colorway of the PG 4 which comes dressed in a Black, White and Smoke Grey color combination.
One of the unique features of the new Nike PG 4 is that the laces are not fully exposed. The model will feature a one-piece mesh upper along with a zipper which will expose the lacing. The medial side also exposes more of the tech underneath which it comes with a webbed lacing system. While not confirmed, the PG 4 is also expected to come with a full length Zoom Strobel which has been used on the KD 12. In addition we have a fuse overlay on the mid-foot which will help with containment. Lastly is a rubber outsole with translucent areas.

Currently the first color option of the Nike PG 4 is scheduled to release on January 24th, 2020. At the time of writing a retail price is unknown. Once more information is available we will make sure to update. For now you can check out additional photos and let us know your thoughts.

Update 1/5: Nike has just unveiled Paul George’s fourth signature shoe, the PG 4 which features a full-length Air unit.
A semi-transparent, mesh-zippered shroud fastens over the laces — a first in the Paul George line. It’s reminiscent of a classic look, pioneered by the Air Flight ’98, and provides a snug fit, revealing the gill-like speed lacing system underneath. For the PG4, the shroud provides a level of stylistic flexibility — laces can be worn within it or worn externally thanks to two lace holes near the shoe’s collar. Plus, the shroud allows for a bit of color dynamism, says Hardman.
“Paul likes to play with his laces over the shroud. During play, the mesh is a window into the color choices,” the designer says. “It’s when the shoe is unzipped that you can see the range of combinations added by the laces. Between the upper colorways and the lacing colors beneath the mesh, players can make the look their own.”
The Nike PG 4 will first release in China on January 8th while a stateside launch will take place on January 24th.
