The Limited Edition Playstation x Nike PG2 Releases Feb. 10
How Paul George’s love of gaming inspired the first colorway.
Paul George considers himself one of the biggest gamers in the NBA, so it’s no surprise that Nike linked him up with the gaming giant for the launch of his second signature sneaker the PG2.
“I just had a knack for video games,” George explains. “As soon as I discovered PlayStation, I was throwing hints here and there to my dad — cutting out the clipping of a video game, cutting out the clippings of the PlayStation, leaving it on his dresser. I remember on Christmas morning, I unwrapped my gift and sure enough, it was the PS2. I’ve been a PlayStation guy ever since.”
The collaboration, worked on with Playstation officials, features several nods to the console. Wrapped around around the heel of the shoe is a dynamic winged support overlay bearing a graphic print inspired by Playstation controller buttons. Logos on the tongues actually light up and the starry print associated with the sneaker will be available as a theme for the Playstation 4 using a code from the shoe.
