The exact shoe that Zion Williamson blew through during injury
Duke phenom Zion Williamson injured his knee on Wednesday against North Carolina just 33 seconds into the game, and now everyone wants to know which NIKE shoe he was wearing.
Williamson was wearing the Nike PG 2.5 PE, a signature shoe of Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Paul George. Williamson planted his foot and the shoe literally broke into pieces.

This isn’t a good look for NIKE at all. Yes, Zion Williamson is built like Superman and his first step is very explosive, but in no circumstance should a shoe just break like it did with Williamson during the game.
Duke announced Williamson won’t return to the game. Until we have more information on the young star, there’s no reason to speculate what type of knee injury he suffered. The only thing we can hope for is that it wasn’t a tear of any kind.
So what’s next for Williamson? Will he sit out the rest of the season to avoid another injury? This kid is going to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and he would be risking millions of dollars if he continues to play for Duke and the NCAA.
Only time will tell, but basketball fans are hoping and praying Williamson will be okay because he looks like a once-in-a-generation type of player.
