Paul George + PlayStation: Introducing the PG-2 PlayStation Colorway

A new collaboration between PlayStation and one of the biggest gamers in the NBA.

If you know me, you know my game never stops. Whether I’m at home or on the road, I’m always playing on my PS4, which is why I’m excited to announce my official collaboration between Nike Basketball and PlayStation with the PG-2 “PlayStation” colorway.

Just like basketball, I’ve had a knack for video games since I was a kid. When I was 8 or 9, I used to amaze my uncle and all his friends by consistently beating them in all the sports games we’d play. And if I saw something cool while I was playing, I’d go outside and try it out on the court or the field. So in a way, sports and video games were always feeding off one another to me.

This collaboration has been a long time coming. Ask me what my favorite PlayStation memory is and I’ll tell you it’s when my dad got me a PS2 for Christmas. I’d been dropping hints left and right because I knew that was it. That was the next big thing. You could say the same with Nike. As a kid, I’d make sketches of what I wanted my Nike shoes to look like because it’s something I’ve always wanted to be a part of. Now I have the opportunity to make something very special and personal to me with the help of two of my favorite brands.

Working with designers from both Nike and PlayStation, we took inspiration from the console’s DualShock 4 controller and the iconic symbols that have been a part of every PlayStation product to create a colorway that honored my game both on and off the court.

A few interesting things that you should know about the colorway:

  • The tongues of the shoe sport the PG and PlayStation logos, which illuminate and pulsate blue just like when turning on the console
  • The back heel of the left shoe has a unique barcode that contains a PSN voucher code, which can be redeemed at PlayStation Store for a Paul George Dynamic Theme for your PS4
  • The colors of the sneaker pay homage to the buttons on the DualShock 4 controller
  • The iconic PlayStation symbols are embossed in patent leather on each shoe
  • The look of the PG Dynamic Theme is reflected in the sock liner on each shoe

I consider myself one of the biggest gamers in the NBA. Ever since getting my PS2 for Christmas as a kid, my game has gone with me wherever I go, so working with PlayStation was something that felt inevitable.

The PG2 “PlayStation” colorway drops globally on February 10, 2018. For more information on the release, download the Nike SNKRS app.

    I Need These shoes i Wonder whats the code for it maybe a privat game or ps Plus

  • The PSN voucher means PlayStation plus membership or just the theme? And are they going to release in India, so I should hype or not.

  • christilley1985

    How many will be available?

  • juanescobar86

    They are not in the app anymore. Where do I get them? Had them saved for February 10th and they are gone, says error if I look for them.

  • Very sneaky Sony X Nike.. Now when you look at the SNKRS.app after the last update for the App.. When you go to the “PG2” section it shows “Drawing will start Feb 10”.. Does this mean that not everyone can purchase this shoe ? what do you guys mean by drawing ??

  • ChEv_cHeLiOs-619

    Is this Shoe only available for US Customers?

  • Will they be available in India too?

  • xSliipperyFoxX

    Yo I want a pair so much I have the Paul George 2 camp green gums and the Paul George 3 just black and white I would really love a pair I am a big Paul George fan and a playstation it would be a dream come true to get these shoes for real tho

  • partytime157

    I’m a normal size 12 but I have wide feet, so I’m thinking size 13? Suggestions?

  • It seems to me that globally means: “Only in the USA”.

  • Too bad they had a “drawing” for them. I had my money ready and signed into the website as soon as it when live. Tried to purchase and got told 30 mins later I didn’t make the cut. Sucks, I figured they would be readily available for anyone who wanted to get them. Terrible way to sell them.

    Please release these to the uk, I want them but I don’t want to pay $700 on eBay for them!!! Why does everything get released in America only when you have worldwide fans??? It annoys me so so much, it’s like saying America is the best so screw every other country when I bet most Americans prefer Xbox or PC anyway. I want these shoes because I love PlayStation, have got every console and this is how you repay your fans You’re rubbing it in my face and it hurts.

    • It says they drop globally i thought that meant worldwide? @PlayStation should be sued for false advertising

  • Will be getting them soon.

  • Notorious_Cub

    Disappointed. You guys said world wide release and India did not get these

  • Narutoexpert187

    I missed my chance. OMG!!!!

  • Narutoexpert187

    Live in the London and haven’t heard anything yet, although, it could just because I don’t have many sources to go off. Were these shoes sold in London stores (any of them).
