Nike's PlayStation Sneakers Are Back [Update]

Nike's original and super-limited 2006 release of some PlayStation-branded AF1s became something of a cult classic, so this week they're bringing them back.

I used this video games platform to call Paul George's first signature shoe (the PG1) 'trash' last year, so it's only fair I return in 2018 to say his second is 'not trash'.

    I'm looking at these trying to work out how they relate to the PS brand....

      OK well these def weren't the sneakers that were here when I commented. These I can see how they're related to the PS brand.

    Oh hell yeah, copping these for sure. Air Forces are probably the only pair of Nikes I genuinely like to wear. It's the classic design with a beautiful colorway. I dig it.

      AF1 are amazing. i have been exclusively wearing them for over 10 years now. they are some of the most comfortable and durable shoes i have ever worn. I never used to understand why people would pay more than $20 for a pair of shoes till i started wearing them lol.
