From t-shirts to sweatshirts, hoodies and socks, video games and clothing go together like hands in gloves, and I'm all the happier for it. Because I love video games and... well... clothes are a necessity. And, stop me if you think I'm wrong, I reckon there are few things cooler than a fly pair of video game themed sneakers. Don't you?

Nike - CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max

Nike - Blazer High Premium Atari CX2600 "Game Select"

Based on Atari's classic 2600 console, these utterly gorgeous Blazers are designed to resemble one of the most beautiful consoles of all time. With black leather and an illustrated brushed wood finish, I think these are probably better suited to the mantlepiece than the sidewalk. Look at them! They're... they're amazing...

Freaker Sneaks - JRDN4 X PS4 “20th Anniversary Edition”

Around $950

The first of two PlayStation-themed Air Jordans, these beauties brought the noise in order to celebrate PlayStation's 20th anniversary. With PS4 branding dotted all over the shoes, and... HDMI ports in the heel (they don't do anything btw)? These make me feel even worse for missing out on the limited-edition 20th anniversary grey PS4.

Freaker Sneaks - JRDN4 X PS4 “Black Edition”

Around $950

And finally we have Freaker Sneaks' second PS4-themed entry, and this time they're based on the classic black version of the beloved console. Similar in aesthetic—besides color obviously—to the 20th anniversary edition, the Back Edition also comes with HDMI ports on the heel, because why not?!
