Everyone knows that there is a long-lasting debate between Xbox and PlayStation, with each fanbase claiming that their console is the best, however now the gaming giants are branching out into another industry with a whole new debate… Sneakers.
Sony and Microsoft are now collaborating with Nike and Adidas respectively to produce PlayStation and Xbox-inspired sneakers.
The Sole Supplier reveals that the recently leaked Xbox sneakers are more in demand than the upcoming Nike PG5 PlayStation 5 Colorway release. Looking at the increase in interest for both, data shows that Xbox is in the lead by 84.38%.
The Xbox sneakers will be a collaboration with Adidas and are one of four due to be released in 2021 with other releases planned for 2022.
Inspired by the Xbox console itself, the sneakers will feature black, white, and green colours commonly associated with the console and the recognizable Xbox logo on the heel of the shoe. They will also come in Xbox-branded boxes.
Although there has been no official announcement, leaked documents detailing the releases state that the first release will be a promotional version of the adidas Forum Tech Boost style, followed by two pairs of Xbox adidas Forum Mid and a Forum Tech Boost across October and November.
Is this a tactical leak from Xbox to steal the attention from the PG 5 announcement? 👀
This leak comes after the Nike x PlayStation sneakers announcement last week. The PlayStation-inspired sneakers will be released in May for $120 and feature a heavily console-inspired design including a recognisable blue and white colourway.
Is this ‘leak’ a way for Xbox to steal the limelight from PlayStation? Who knows… The only thing we do know is that Xbox is currently in the lead in terms of demand for the console-inspired sneakers and we can’t wait to see the releases.
Keep an eye out on The Sole Supplier for more information on the Xbox sneakers when they receive an official announcement. PG 5 PlayStation 5 colourway drops in select regions starting on May 14, 2021.
