You may not be able to get hold of a PlayStation 5 but you may soon be able to wear some snazzy PS5 inspired trainers as Nike have teamed up with LA Clippers star Paul George and PlayStation to create the PG 5 PlayStation 5 colorway.
“Creating sneaker collaborations with PlayStation and Nike Basketball has been one of my favorite pastimes in recent years, and I’m so thankful to this community for supporting me and sharing in my passion,” said Paul George on the PS Blog. “Like many of you, I’ve been a die-hard PlayStation fan all my life, so it’s an honor to introduce my newest creative project with my favorite brands: the PG 5 PlayStation 5 colorway.”
Here’s the inspirational video to help you part with your cash.
“As with all my PlayStation collaborations, the tongues of the shoe have the PG and PlayStation logos on them,” continues George. “The colors of the shoe are heavily inspired by the industrial design of the PS5 with references on the sock liner and outsoles.”
“It wouldn’t be a true collaboration with PlayStation if we didn’t include the iconic PlayStation shapes, which are spotted along each shoe in the same pattern as on the DualSense wireless controller. Each pair also comes with a special hangtag celebrating my continued partnership with my favorite gaming brand.”
Unfortunately the trainers will only be available in selected territories from May 14th and it has not been announced where in the world you can buy them. PlayStation suggest download the Nike SNKRS app (if available in your country) or keep an eye out on your local Nike website.
Trainers like these usually sell out very quickly and become collectors editions, a previous collaboration between Nike and PlayStation, the PG 2.5, are currently selling at over £300.
