In an announcement on the PlayStation Blog written by Paul George, he explained how “Nike and PlayStation designers, including Yujin Morisawa – the artist behind the PS5 console’s design – worked closely together to bring the spirit of my game and the look of PS5 to life in this unique collaboration.”
As with past collaborations, the tongues of the shoes have the PG and PlayStation logos on them, and with the latest colorways, the PS5 color inspiration is quite clear. And in a callback to the DualSense’s design, the PlayStation face buttons can be found embedded on the shoes as part of the design.
The shoes will be available with drops starting on May 14, via the Nike SNKRS app if it’s available in your country, or you can keep an eye on Nike’s website for availability. Each pair will come with a special hangtag in honor of George and PlayStation’s continued celebration.
For more on the past collaborations, you can see IGN unbox a pair of PG 2.5’s above, as well as take a look at the PG 2’s PlayStation and George previously released.
