Nike has announced it is teaming up with Hot Wheels on the next instalment of the PG 6 trainer, which will also delight fans of LA Clippers.
The Hot Wheels collaboration pays homage to the LA Clippers basketball player Paul George’s love of muscle cars.
Commenting on the collaboration on LinkedIn, Richard Dickson, Mattel president and COO, said: “Hot Wheels-infused throughout, complete with checkerboard prints and flames, this is sure to bring much heat to sneakerheads, Hot Wheels fans and basketball fans both on and off the court.”
The trainer also features Paul George’s number 13 and Nike’s signature backwards swoosh. The statement footwear is equipped with a full-length foam midsole, a supportive lacing system and rubber along the outsole, which gives the wearer stability, durability and control on the court.
To complement the collaboration release, Mattel has created a Paul George Hot Wheels custom circle tracker die-cast deco car to match the special edition Nike PG 6. The vehicle will be available from 23rd November on the Mattel Creations website.
“Paul George is always striving to be better, always pushing to do more,” Nike says on its website. “Lightweight and responsive, this is the perfect shoe for anyone determined to raise their game.”
The Hot Wheels PG 6 will be available for purchase on 23rd November on Nike.com and in selected retailers.
