Nike Unveils Paul George’s PlayStation-Themed PG2 Colorway Signature Sneaker
Paul George’s next signature sneaker has a gaming theme and they’re pretty sweet. Nike teamed up with Sony to make a PlayStation-themed sneaker. The PG2 colorway sneakers were designed by the Oklahoma City Thunder star and they even have the PlayStation logo. There is a PlayStation logo and Paul George’s logo on the tongue that lights up to mimic the pulsating blue light that illuminates when the gaming console is turned on. The lights are powered by a non-replaceable battery that lasts for 150 hours.

Wow! Amazing collab with @PlayStation and @Nike! I wanna thank the both of you for your part in this creation! Thanks to my guy @t_hardmn for your hard work and help on yet another killer shoe.. Truly enjoy your partnership bro! Super excited for you guys to get a hold of the #PG2 and experience the evolution of my signatures! #PillowsOnTheFeet
The colors on George’s second signature shoe are influenced by the buttons on the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller. “We worked directly with the PlayStation team on every aspect of this shoe,” said the shoe’s designer Tony Hardman in a press statement. “One thing that they provided, which was really cool, was the starry graphic from the dynamic theme that will be available for your PlayStation 4 with a code from the shoe. It’s a beautiful graphic, so we made it the sock liner.” The back heel of the left shoe there is a barcode that provides a PSN voucher code, which can be redeemed at the PlayStation Store for a Paul George Dynamic Theme for your PS4.
“I just had a knack for video games,” George said. “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 PG2 PlayStation colorway sneakers will be available on February 10, 2018, in limited quantities for $110.
