When the Nike PG 1 EYBL was first unveiled, it was believed to be a PE that would not be releasing to the public. That no longer appears to be the case since it was just announced that Footlocker will be releasing the Nike PG 1 EYBL on May 13th, 2017 in-store only at their House of Hoops location in Harlem.
For those of you not too familiar with what EYBL colorways are or what EYBL stands for, they’re special colorways of Nike signature models that celebrate Nike’s annual Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL). This year Nike chose to create EYBL versions of the Kyrie 3 and PG 1.
The Nike PG 1 EYBL opts for a flashy motif. Although most of the shoe’s base comes in Black, it’s the colorful graphics on the inner bootie incorporating the EYBL cities that really gives the it’s unique pop. Add in the iridescent Nike Swoosh branding, the speckling on the midsole, the GIDT outsole and the additional color on the Zoom bag, and you’ve got yourself a pretty bold PG 1. For those who are closer to Harlem or are willing to make the drive, are you looking to cop? May 13th, 2017. $110. Good luck.
Update: There’s still a chance that these drop on Nike.com. Nothing is confirmed yet, but Nike could very well release them on their site with no heads up. Stay tuned.
