Space exploration continues to be the central theme of the Nike PG 3 run, with a reflective silver colorway inspired by Apollo 11 on its way to retail. The silver-on-silver look is highlighted by 3M reflective mesh paneling, as well as custom NASA patches on the tongues and heels of both shoes. On the left tongue is a patch that calls out Apollo 11, the 1969 mission that first landed humans on the moon. A black and white section of traction on the outsole could also represent the surface of the moon.

Other details includes Black neoprene heel piece, Black leather tongue and midfoot overlay, along with Black Three Stripes with hits of Burgundy on the sides. Its signature transluenct plastic tubing atop a Black rubber outsole completes the design.
