The Playstation x Nike PG2, Paul George’s signature sneaker, will be releasing again via in-store draws at Nike’s Soho location in New York and at Atlanta’s Lenox-based store. The draw is scheduled to take place later today (2/21) through Nike SNKRS app and www.nike.com
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.
The PG2, which retails for $110, made its retail debut earlier this month in the Playstation 2 inspired colorway, as a nod to George’s love for video games.
“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.”
