After the first PlayStation PG 2 instantly sold out, Nike is tapping that well again with Paul George’s latest sneaker, the PG 2.5.
This PlayStation collaboration will forgo the usual black and blue colorway for a crisp all-white look. The sparse hits of color on the Swooshes are broken up by the familiar galaxy print used on the insoles. PlayStation branding hits the tongues and insoles, while Paul George’s name is featured at the heels in a PlayStation-like font.
As many of you know, the PG 2.5 is an iteration of the PG 2. The main difference is the added strap, which comes from the PG 1. “Instead of incorporating Flywire as we did on the original, we conceived a new strap for the PG 2.5 built from a new webbing,” said Nike designer Tony Hardman in a statement.
The Nike PG 2.5 features the 11mm thick forefoot Zoom Air unit, cored-out heel for impact protection, and small TPU shank for torsional rigidity from the PG 2. You can take a look inside that shoe by checking out the Nike PG 2 deconstructed. To find out how this shoe performs check out Nightwing2303’s Nike PG 2 Performance Review.
There is no official word yet on when this shoe will drop but expect a very limited release via Nike SNKRS in the coming days.
