Editor's take: Sony’s PlayStation 5 remains next to impossible to find at retail, but maybe shoes modeled after the new console will prove easier to obtain? On second thought, considering how much sneaker culture has grown in recent years, maybe not.

Sony is again partnering with Nike and basketball player Paul George on the new PG 5 PlayStation 5 sneakers. The white and black upper is inspired by the console itself, accented with touches of gray and blue alongside graphics that match the symbols found on the PS5’s DualSense controller.

PlayStation 5 designer Yujin Morisawa worked closely with Nike and George on the design of the shoe.

This isn’t the first time Sony and Nike have come together on a collaboration of this caliber. Back in 2018, the two created the PG 2 PlayStation Colorway sneakers, which featured a built-in lithium battery to illuminate the PG and PlayStation logos. It doesn’t appear as if the new PG 5s have such functionality.

Interested parties can look for the PG 5 PlayStation 5 Colorway kicks to drop in select regions starting May 14. They carry an MSRP of $120 although given what we suspect will be limited availability, the street price (if you can find them) could be a good bit higher.

They aren't half bad, too often these collab just make some tacky looking walking billboard. These look like proper Nike shoes first, with subtle PS5 influence.

I guess also, white and blue is an easy combination.

Sony, Nike and the NBA, all things I live without....the trifecta of garbage!
Oh yes, Nike is only producing the best runner shoes in the world, based on world records. And one of only two companies (other one being Adidas) to implement large scale recycling.

I hate smart@sses that want to look clever by hating on mainstream things.

Disclaimer: long-distance runner for 15 years, half marathoner for a decade. Right now, owner of a Pegasus 36 (regular running), a Pegasus 36 Trail (summer trail running / hiking), a Pegasus Trail 2 GTX (winter trail running / hiking), and a Terra Kiger 6 (street walking). Did over 1000 km running and around 350 km hiking in 2020 alone. Now, please tell me about how "garbage" Nike shoes are, I'm sure you have a lot of insight.

I feel this is one dumb tie up. Instead of paying Sony for using the brand, Playstation, on it, may be they can make the shoes cheaper using the same color scheme?

Aren't you special? Can I have your autograph?
