Nike And Sony Launch The PlayStation Themed Sneakers
Nike is known for making sneakers, and Sony is known for making PlayStation. So, what do you get when these two brands collaborate? Well, it’s pretty simple, you get a PlayStation themed sneakers in association with basketball player Paul George called the PG2 sneakers.
The PG2 is George’s second signature shoe and features light-up tongues with the PlayStation and PG logos. Buttons inside the tongues let users turn the lights on or off. There’s also a pulse mode where the lights flicker and vibrate, similar to a PlayStation Dual Shock controller. The shoe’s batteries aren’t replaceable and have a lifespan of around 150 hours.
Apparently, Nike worked very closely with the PlayStation team to get the little customisations right. The team also provided the galaxy graphic which is visible on the sock liner in the shoe. That print is available for download as a theme for PS4 consoles using a PSN voucher code that’s embedded on the back of the left shoe. The eyelets copy the PlayStation controller button colours of green, blue, pink, and purple; and the blue rubber soles glow in the dark.
The PG2 aren’t meant for everyone but, if you are a Paul George fan and like PlayStation, you can buy these sneakers for US $110. The sneakers will go on sale globally
