Paul George has yet to prove himself as worthy of the self-appointed “Playoff P” moniker, but his Nike PG 4 has repeatedly demonstrated that it executes concepts well. Its latest ensemble, which has reportedly prematurely launched at a Nike store in Itaewon, South Korea, nods to the Christmas holiday.
At first glance, the forthcoming iteration of George’s hoops-ready shoe resembles the Strawberry Cough Dunks, with their red and green color palette. Further inspection, however, reveals that the “most wonderful time of the year” and not 4/20 that’s served as the pair’s muse. Zippered overlays maintain their medial mesh construction, but lateral sides indulge in a quality velvet likely nodding to Santa Claus. Breathable bases are overtaken by a green reminiscent of the Grinch or pine trees (your choice); hardware, accents on the midsole and the signature on the heel follow suit. “PG” logos on the lime green sockliner have been reworked for the festive theme, as they’re depicted in the style of Christmas lights. Sole units don’t make as direct nods to the December 25th event, but their color palette fit right in with the rest of the shoe.
