War between PlayStation and Xbox Console switches to Nike / Adidas branded shoes



The war of PlayStation consoles against Xbox is about to shift from gaming to something very different – shoes. The two gaming brands of Sony and Microsoft have partnered with leading sportswear and apparel brands Nike and Adidas to produce PlayStation and Xbox themed shoes.

The PlayStation / Nike shoe was unveiled last Tuesday and features a special collaboration with Los Angeles Clippers’ NBA star Paul George. According to him, the project was co-designed with Yujin Morisawa, the artist behind the PlayStation 5 console. Here are the highlights of the design:

  • As with all of my PlayStation collaborations, the tongues of the shoe bear the PG and PlayStation logos.
  • The colors of the shoe are strongly inspired by the industrial design of the PS5 with references on the liner and the outsole.
  • 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 hang tag celebrating my continued partnership with my favorite gaming brand.

The PG 5 PlayStation 5 colorway will be available from May 14 in select regions.

As for Xbox, the collaboration with Adidas is not official yet, but Complex has managed to get the truth and a leaked image of the actual shoes).

Complex adds that this is only a “first round sample” and the end product could be different.
