NBA star Paul George reveals his latest collaboration with Nike. Inspired once more by his love of PlayStation his newest signature shoes carry a classic colourway.
Paul George debuted his latest signature shoe at Oklahoma City Thunder’s away game versus the Golden State Warriors. The NBA star is famous for his ball skills on the court and his love of Playstation away from it.
In January this year George launched his PG2 signature shoe that took style cues from Sony’s PS4. PlayStation forms the inspiration once more for his latest collaboration with Nike.
Finished in the original grey found on the first PlayStation console, Paul George’s PG 2.5 signature shoes feature subtle detailing mirroring those found on Sony’s iconic controllers. Once again George’s logo features on the tongue of the right shoe whilst the traditional four-colour PlayStation logo takes pride of place on the left.
PG 2.5 is the third collaboration between Paul George and global sports giant Nike. In each instance the shoes have referenced the player’s love of video gaming.
As explained on nike.com: “Before, I played video games just because it was fun,” George says. “Now I do it because that’s how I relax. I need an exit from reality sometimes, to get away, to be in a different place and different moment.”
Nike PG 2.5 x PlayStation will be available from select retailers and via the SNKRS app globally from December 1st.
