Well, would you look at that? Oklahoma City Thunder’s Paul George just took to the PlayStation Blog to announce a brand new pair of PlayStation-themed sneakers set to release globally on 10th February. Officially entitled Nike PG-2 ‘PlayStation’ Colorways, the shoes sport “illuminating” tongues that pulsate just like the PlayStation 4 itself.
That’s not all: the back heel includes a barcode which when redeemed on the PlayStation Store will unlock a bonus Paul George dynamic theme for your PS4, while the shoes leverage the colours of the DualShock’s iconic face buttons in the lace area and on the sides. While these could have comfortably been a disaster, we actually love the way they look.
“I consider myself one of the biggest gamers in the NBA,” said Paul George. “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.” You can learn more about the trainers via the Nike SNKRS app, which can be downloaded through here.
