Creating sneaker collaborations with PlayStation and Nike Basketball has been one of my favorite pastimes in recent years, and I’m so thankful to this community for supporting me and sharing in my passion. Like many of you, I’ve been a die-hard PlayStation fan all my life, so it’s an honor to introduce my newest creative project with my favorite brands: the PG 5 PlayStation 5 colorway.
Just like the PlayStation 5 console, the PG 5 is my platform to take my game to the next level, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring these two elements together in this new partnership with PlayStation. Nike and PlayStation designers, including Yujin Morisawa – the artist behind the PS5 console’s design – worked closely together to bring the spirit of my game and the look of PS5 to life in this unique collaboration.
Here’s a peek at what you can expect to see in the design this time:
- As with all my PlayStation collaborations, the tongues of the shoe have the PG and PlayStation logos on them.
- The colors of the shoe are heavily inspired by the industrial design of the PS5 with references on the sock liner and outsoles.
- It wouldn’t be a true collaboration with PlayStation if we didn’t include the iconic PlayStation shapes, which are spotted along each shoe in the same pattern as on the DualSense wireless controller.
Each pair also comes with a special hangtag celebrating my continued partnership with my favorite gaming brand. I hope everyone is as excited as I am for this one.
The PG 5 PlayStation 5 colorway drops in select regions starting on May 14, 2021. For more information on the release and availability in your country, download the Nike SNKRS app (if available in your country) or keep an eye out on your local Nike website.
