Sony and Nike have collaborated with Paul George to make PlayStation-themed shoes. The designed is based on the immensely popular DualShock 4 controller.
We all know that Nike is never afraid to experiment. They actually brought the self-lacing shoes from Back To The Future to life, called Mag and HyperAdapt. The newest edition in their outlandish shoes is the PG-2 PlayStation Colorway. The PlayStation-themed shoes are the result of the collaboration between Nike, Sony and NBA star Paul George. The design and colors of the shoes are based on the immensely popular DualShock 4 controller.
As mentioned in the official PlayStation Blog, Paul George is a huge PlayStation fan.
“This collaboration has been a long time coming,” he recollects. “Ask me what my favorite PlayStation memory is and I’ll tell you. It’s when my dad got me a PS2 for Christmas. I’d been dropping hints left and right because I knew that was it. That was the next big thing. You could say the same with Nike. As a kid, I’d make sketches of what I wanted my Nike shoes to look like because it’s something I’ve always wanted to be a part of. Now I have the opportunity to make something very special and personal to me with the help of two of my favorite brands.”
“I consider myself one of the biggest gamers in the NBA. Ever since getting my PS2 for Christmas as a kid, my game has gone with me wherever I go, so working with PlayStation was something that felt inevitable.”
PG-2 Colorway shoes have some really interesting features:
The tongues of the shoe sport the PG and PlayStation logos, which illuminate and pulsate blue just like when turning on the console.
The back heel of the left shoe has a unique barcode that contains a PSN voucher code, which can be redeemed at PlayStation Store for a Paul George Dynamic Theme for your PS4.
Colors of the sneaker pay homage to the buttons on the DualShock 4 controller.
The iconic PlayStation symbols are embossed in patent leather on each shoe.
The look of the PG Dynamic Theme is reflected in the sock liner on each shoe.
