Sony collaborated with NBA star Paul George on PlayStation 5 sneakers

PS5 + PG13 = a new pair of video game inspired sneakers.

Sony is partnering with Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George on a new pair of sneakers inspired by the design of the PlayStation 5.

The PG 5 PlayStation 5 Colorway are available in white with accents of blue and black. The tongues of the show feature the PS5 and George’s personal logo. And the NBA star’s  jersey number, 13, is etched into the side of the shoe near the heel. 

The different shapes featured on the PlayStation controller’s buttons are featured as well as a pattern similar to the PS5’s DualSense controller.

“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,” wrote George in a blog post published May 4.

The new sneakers will launch in select regions on May 14. A listing on Nike’s website shows the shoes will be available May 27, priced at $120.
