Much like its predecessors, both of the PG 5’s colorways consist of white, blue, and black, a nod to the game console’s colors.

The first design sports a mostly white upper with black accents on the tongue and lining similar to the  white outer shell and black of the console. This is complete with glowing blue highlights on the heel Swoosh, soles, and branding on the tongue.

The second design is covered in deep blue tones similar to the PS5’s system background screen. Its tongue, collar, and heels are contrasted with a solid white.

A gradient blue accents both colorways on the air cushioned outsoles that mimic the PS5’s DualSense 5 controllers. Mini “X”, “O”, square, and triangle icons that are found on the controller buttons are designed and printed onto the shoes for both designs as well. PS5 branding can be spotted on the heel, the side of the midsoles, the tongue, and hang tag.
