There's a new Playstation x Nike Air Force 1 Low set to release "soon," but the exact date and time has not yet been announced. It was rumored that the limited edition sneakers would release last night via Nike SNKRS Stash just before the E3 conference that’s taking place in Los Angeles from June 12-14. However, that wasn't the case.
That being said, Nike has just released official images of the video game console-inspired sneakers and made them available for select consumers in LA via Nike Early Access. To see if you're eligible to cop the kicks, visit Nike.com.

Nike and PlayStation have a long-standing relationship that began over a decade ago, when the two brands combined for a limited edition run of Air Force 1s that coincided with Sony's release of the Playstation 3 in 2006.
The 2006 collab, limited to just 150 numbered pairs, were originally only available to Sony employees, preferred Nike ambassadors and lucky sweepstake winners. According to Nike, their product design team worked closely with PlayStation to come up with the design, which originally included a premium leather sample with laces in red.
"When the PlayStation team finally got their hands on it, they knew they had something special that deserved to shine. That shine was provided with the addition of patent leather to the shoe’s toebox, eyestay and midfoot paneling. Purple laces would replace the red, topping off a design that screamed PlayStation. Complete with the striking fade at the heel and the timeless PlayStation logo, this would become the PlayStation x Nike Air Force 1 as we know it today. A meticulously crafted design that perfectly embodied the collaborative efforts from Nike and PlayStation."
"As part of the production process, nearly all round one samples of the initial premium leather version were destroyed. Fast forward to 2018, Nike and PlayStation continue to forge a strong legacy of collaboration. Fans of both brands can only imagine what comes next."
