Guess Sony wants to build up that anticipation for their PlayStation 5 with any means possible. Earlier this month, Sony teamed with fashion giant Zara to produce a Sony PlayStation-themed sneakers. Oops I forget to mention that this is actually a pair of kids sneakers. Read on to find out if you could fit into the largest size available. Unlike Sony's other sneakers collaborations which are more restricted to the niche markets, this pair o diminutive PlayStation footwear appears to have broader appeal thanks to its design.
Sony PlayStation Sneaker pays homage to the very first PlayStation 1
The upper parts of the footwear are decked in grey with black colour trims which is an ode to the original 1st PlayStation. Moving on to the collar area of the sneakers and you will see more prominent presence of PlayStation: A full-fledged PlayStation graphic can be seen on the tongue of the shoes while the heels sport the iconic PS1 "Power" buttons! Aww...how nostalgic right? The tongue and heel tabs are both adorned with the PlayStation text graphics.
The iconic buttons on the controller of the PlayStation console
There will be no laces here so no tying is needed. Instead an elastic band stretches across the top of the foot and is imprinted with the familiar signature triangle, circle, square and X combo just like that of the face buttons of the PlayStation controller. At the bottom, a heel "air" bubble will provide that much needed cushioning for your little ones (or you). Since this PlayStation x Zara sneakers are designed for kids, the biggest size you can find is a US 7. So if your feet are small, you can get a pair for yourself. Otherwise, this Sony PlayStation x Zara Sneaker can be bought at Zara Webstore now for only US$50 (RM200). Your kids will love it.
