Nike PG 2.5 Review

Pros:
Additional strap provides more support
Great price
Cons:
Impact protection in the heel

Performance of the Nike PG 2.5:

The Nike PG2.5 is almost identical to the PG2 but comes with an additional forefoot strap we know from the PG1. This addition improves the fit and support a little bit as it gives you the ability to customize the forefoot to work with your feet. Other than that, materials, cushioning and traction remained unchanged and provide the same great performance that the previous model did! At only $110 retail, you can't go wrong with these!

This is an awesome performer with great tech at an affordable price. Cushion, traction, and materials stayed the same but the fit and support are slightly improved!

I would pick the PG 2.5 over the PG 2 as they look better and provide a more customizable fit thanks to the forefoot strap.

There are some minor slips here and there, but overall, the traction is really, really solid.

I still wish that they had introduced a Zoom unit in the heel for a more forgiving cushioning.

You can feel the forefoot Zoom a little but the heel is completely dead.

The strap that was added to the 2.5 adds a little more support in the forefoot and removes the heel slippage I experienced in the previous model.
