Nike PG 3 Performance Analysis and Review


PG13 for MVP? Itís gotta be the shoes right? Thank you PG you made this so easy that Iím just going to make this short and sweet. Youíre the Shimano Curado of shoes PG. (only fishing dudes would get that reference). The PG3 is Really a shoe with zero flaws just like PG13ís game this year. Cushioning from the HDX has carried over to the. PG3 and the fit has improved slightly from the PG2 while keeping that excellent traction. Pros: traction, cushioning, fit, stability, containment, adaptable fit, just a fun shoe to play in Cons: needs a little break in to feel fluid, really bland colorblocking thus far (not performance related) Best for: any, itís a Hyperdunk X low with PGs name on it and improved traction, which is a good thing Sizing advice: true to size, wide footers can go up half a size if needed Buying advice: as great of a price $110 is, collectors and consumers arenít clamoring for the latest PG (yet). Wait a week or two and youíll be able to use coupons and eventually price cuts. Fair is $90 or less, low around $50-60 as usual. Weight 14 ounces about average for a low. Half an ounce lighter than the PG2 Traction Sticking with the NASA theme, we give you circles.. or moons.. or planets..or orbits. Or basketball rims and basketballs? Oh Nike I can never figure you out youíre so sneaky. The good news is that circles work and thatís all that matters. Circles donít have sides but they cover you in all directions which is what matters. Whether youíre playing on clean courts, courts with dirt or moon dust, youíre good in the Pg3. The only area I had any issue with at all was the flat lateral edge which could pick up some dust. I had one really bad slip out on a clean court due to that rim but other than that I canít think of any major issues. Soft rubber, multi directional coverage and nice depth allows the traction to do its job. Well done Nike! CushioningNot sure why the forefoot outer midsole (93552 portion) is made of a hard rubber. Foot doesnít sit deep enough for containment purposes and probably adds a little to break in time. I think everyone will enjoy this cushioning since Nike put the same foam in the PG3 as they did in the HDX. Nike kept the same big forefoot Zoom as last years so yea itís freakin great with a slightly softer and bouncier foam carrier. Same super duper thick Ortholite insole as the PG 1 and 2. Top insole is from the WhyNot 2 If you called this foam Lunarfly X Zoom Max Foam instead of injected Phylon or Cushlon, people would probably think it was the best things for their knees. Very smooth heel to toe cushioning just like PGís game. Well done Nike! Fit Top eyelet is higher and further back than the 2 for better lockdown True to size. So simple isnít it ? These do start out tight so I recommend thinner socks before you jump into your normal premium socks. I wanted to get these off my feet ASAP when I tried them with thicker socks but dropping to thinner socks gave me a little more breathing room until the shoes broke in. No dead space, no side to side movement, no heel slip right out of the box. This is just a great fitting one to one fit with no need to break in anything. I was messing around at Dickís (man that sounds wrong) and they had a size 12 out and I could fit it just fine with only a little extra length. The point being, PG1-3 are adaptive and are not one size fits one. UA, three stripes are you listening ? The Achilles pillows donít go down as far toward the heel as the PG2 which gave me a little better better heel lockdown than the 2 since fits right into that notch at the Achilles. Overall, aside from a short break in period, the fit is excellent. Well done Nike! Materials If you think softer is better, well stick to the PG2. This upper has a synthetic backing that pops slightly to start but warms up after a few hours. The PG2 did not feature a stiffer backing probably since the mesh was a little thicker overall and is probably where Nike saved half an ounce of weight. Nike has made the materials a little less premium since the PG 1 but hey it works. Do cheaper feeling materials make you play worse or get your more tired ? Nope they just make you feel like youíre playing in more or less expensive shoes. If nicer feeling materials is what you want, youíll probably love the Why Not 2. Support and Stability Like the PG2 the 3 is a high low so support comes from the great fit and the heel counter. No issues here at all There is a plastic midfoot shank that stiffens up the midsole just enough. No portable rollie pollie action here. Stability is great as well and is just as wide as the PG2 despite no outrigger. Zero issues overall with support and stability on the PG 3. Nice job Nike! Containment Zero issues. Raised midsole, synthetic forefoot straps. We good Nike. Conclusion Well sh*t 2019 is killing it or Iím reallly getting good at picking winners. Zero complaints about anything and itís considered a budget shoe? PG has been balling out with Russ, Aquaman and the Thunder so I think the causal fan may finally get to to know Playoff P.. Everything you want or need in a low top for a lower than average price of $110 (NASA was $120..gotta pay NASA for the use of their name).but if you wait a few weeks youíll be able to use your coupons to bring the price down to $90 and eventually scoop more up at the $50-60 price point by end of summer or so. Donít expect PG prices to stay low if he keeps up this play over the next few years though. Every player is a brand now and with great player performances come incremental price hikes *see Kobe, Lebron, Kyrie, Curry, Dame** I enjoyed these shoes so much I attempted to NikeID them but the blocking and color choices just didnít look great to me. Maybe Normcore blandness has worked itís way into basketball but I needed a little more pop with these BHMís so I swapped the laces for fun. Color makes the world fun donít you think ? Looks sell but I guess at this price point, nobody cares ? Or Nike assumes nobody cares ? Or they want everyone to make IDs? Oh well Well done Nike
