The New Nike PG2s were Released in Partnership with PlayStation

Paul George, the NBA superstar on the Oklahoma City Thunder, has recently released his newest signature shoe, the Nike PG2, and the kicks pay homage to various generations of PlayStation. Indeed, the shoes have been released in partnership with PlayStation, offering up goodies in the form of fun design quirks as well as special voucher codes embedded directly on the shoes.

To an outsider, the most notable aspect of the Nike PG2s will undoubtedly be the light-up tongues. Powered by a Li-ion battery, the shoes' tongues glow blue with a PG logo on one side and a PlayStation logo on the other. The lights have three settings: off, on, and pulse, which is meant to shift and vibrate like a PlayStation controller.

To the wearer, though, the best part of the Nike PG2s might be the voucher code printed onto the backheel of one of the shoes, which gives access to a unique graphic theme for the PlayStation.
