Key Features: Unlike the PG1, the PG2 arrives sans strap, instead opting for a more traditional tongue construction. “Dynamic wings” are featured at the forefoot for enhanced lockdown and to provide a snugger fit, while the Zoom Air unit has also been increased to 10 millimeters for improved propulsion and overall traction.
Release Date: February 10
Editor’s Notes: Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George has released his second signature shoe with Nike — and it’s pretty wild. Inspired by the baller’s love of gaming, the shoe features a whole host of PlayStation-specific nods. Designed by Nike Basketball’s Tony Hardman, the PS logo is featured on a tongue which lights up, along with a starry graphic on the midsole and sock liner. You can get said graphic for your PS4 with a code that comes with the sneaker.
“As soon as I discovered PlayStation, I was throwing hints here and there to my dad — cutting out the clipping of a video game, cutting out the clippings of the PlayStation, leaving it on his dresser,” George told Nike. “I remember on Christmas morning, I unwrapped my gift and sure enough, it was the PS2. I’ve been a PlayStation guy ever since.”
Look out for the limited-edition kicks on the feet of George when the Okloahoma City Thunder square off against the Cleveland Caveliers tonight.
