Editor’s Notes: Nike and Oklahoma City Thunder’s Paul George have unveiled the NBA star’s latest signature shoe, the PG 3, in a NASA-themed colorway.
In addition to the space exploration theme, the colorway is a nod to the Thunder’s team colors, as well as the classic NASA logo and spacesuit. An American flag is embossed on the tongue, while NASA’s logo can be seen on the heel. George’s favorite quote, “Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon,” is printed along the heel.
“I’ve always thought that there was another level for me,” says George. “I always dreamed of playing in the NBA, but I wasn’t satisfied with that. I always envisioned bigger plans. I want to be a champion. That’s what my dream is. I always believed there was a higher space for me.”
The sneaker drops alongside a complementary capsule of NASA-themed apparel today, January 26, at Nike and select retailers.
