As a kid I had light-up shoes. Nike offered shoes once that had a little chip in them that would sync with your smart phone to show you how many calories you burnt while running (Running? What's that??)
Who can forget those iconic self-tying shoes from 'Back to the Future'?
Well the folks at Pizza Hut are trying to take the footwear world into the future, with pizza-ordering shoes. Yes. Because it's too hard to pick up your phone can call.
The chain created 64 special-edition "Pie-Tops" both in honor of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament starting this month and the fact that it is really easy to get a pizza.
The bad news: these shoes won't go on sale to the public. However, the 64 pairs will be made available to some lucky individuals as part of a future promotion.
The shoes use Bluetooth technology and geolocation to know where to deliver the pizza, says Pizza Hut, once wearers place their order by pressing on the shoe's tongue.
So, maybe pizza shoes aren't in our immediate futures.
