Nike’s PG 2.5 x PlayStation colourway is an homage to the NBA star’s “earliest days of gaming”

These Nike retro PlayStation sneakers are launching just in time for Christmas.

The Nike Paul George PlayStation colourway is being revived for a December release, but the new PG 2.5 x PlatStation colourway is going old school this time around.

Following the release of the PG-2 PlayStation Colorway back in February, this second collaboration focuses on “bringing that original PlayStation inspiration to life”.

In a post on the PlayStation blog, George lists a few of his favourite features of the new colourway:

  • The tongues of the shoe still have the PG and PlayStation logos that light up and pulsate blue, but this time we added the original four-colour PlayStation logo that lights up on the other side of the tongue
  • The strap across the top front of each shoe provides stability to really lock you in
  • The iconic PlayStation symbols are embossed in patent leather on each shoe, just like on the original PG2 x PlayStation Colorway

“I was blown away by the response to the release of the PG2 x PlayStation back in February,” George said. “As a huge fan of PlayStation, I was honoured to get the chance to collaborate on something that so many of you loved. Because of that, I’m happy to announce that PlayStation, Nike Basketball, and I have returned with a new collaboration, the PG 2.5 x PlayStation Colorway.

“For those who know me, gaming is a big part of who I am – I love the fans and I love this community, so it was amazing to see the gaming and sneaker worlds collide with the original PG2 collaboration.”

You can take a gander at the shoe in the gallery below:

“This collaboration is very special and personal to me,” he added. “I’ve been a PlayStation fan ever since I was kid, so I’m excited about continuing to partner with a brand that I grew up loving.”

The PG 2.5 x PlayStation colourway launches worldwide on December 1.
