Update 05/05/21 03:10 – Sony has now officially announced these sneakers on the PlayStation Blog, with them being made available in select regions from May 14, 2021.

- As with all my PlayStation collaborations, the tongues of the shoe have the PG and PlayStation logos on them.
- The colors of the shoe are heavily inspired by the industrial design of the PS5 with references on the sock liner and outsoles.
- 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.

The images which were posted by laceuphk on Instagram are reportedly set to release in May and offer two variants, one which is blue and another which is majority white. Each pair dons the iconic PlayStation symbols, alongside the PS5 logo and the PG5 logo.
The shoes are reportedly set to cost $110 and it isn’t clear if they will release in other territories, beyond the United States of America. There isn’t much information about them yet, but you can see a number of images from them here:
