Where to Buy Playstation x Nike PG5 "PS5"nike.com
Nike Basketball and Sony have collaborated again on Paul George’s PG line to bring gamers and hoopers alike the Nike PG5 “PS5”. George, a self-proclaimed die-hard PlayStation fan, tapped the designer Yujin Murisawa, who designed the PS5, to collaborate on the PG5.
Taking design cues from the newest gen console, the white textile mesh upper and black collar brings a sleek look similar to the PS5. The forefoot and heel overlays are printed with the iconic PlayStation buttons as seen on the DualSense controller for the PS5. Blue hits are seen throughout, a blue band between the upper and midsole that takes inspiration from the lighting on the console.
The PG logo can be seen on one tongue as well as the PlayStation logo on the other, which has become somewhat of a staple in this collaboration through the years, as well as mismatched hits of Nike Air and PS5 on the medial and lateral sides respectively. A blue translucent sole, PS5 branded pull tab on the heel, and PG X PS5 hangtag complete this collaboration.
From a performance aspect, the PG5 takes on an updated take from the predecessor, which uses full-length Nike Air cushioning that is directly embedded into the strobel. With the cushioning setup directly stitched to the upper, it removes any unnecessary layers to the midsole which in turn brings a plusher and bounce to the cushioning setup.
The PlayStation x Nike PG5 “PS5” will retail for $120 USD and will drop on Nike SNKRS on June 17, 2021. Check out the official images below.
