Nike PG3, Paul George emphasized three core principles to designer Tony Hardman: shed what is unnecessary, make every step matter and remember where I came from. Shedding the unnecessary ties to George's primary ask—to make the shoe lighter than its predecessor. To achieve this, Hardman went with a strategy of stripping away the excess and only retaining features that enhance George's game. They scaled back on the extra TPU, integrated the tongue into the collar, employed a softer, lighter foam in the midsole and utilized mesh in the upper, shedding nearly an ounce off the PG 2.5 as a result.
