Smart shoes that can track your workouts aren’t a new thing. Pizza Hut, however, has created smart shoes that are the polar opposite of fitness. The Pie Tops II, a sequel to last year’s Pie Tops sneaker, are here as part of an ad campaign for March Madness.
能追蹤鍛煉軌跡的智能鞋已經不是什么新鮮事物，但是，必勝客最近發明了和健康背道而馳的智能鞋——餡餅二號（The Pie Tops II）。這雙鞋是繼去年推出的為大學生籃球聯賽打廣告的餡餅一號運動鞋升級版。
Despite existing primarily as a marketing tool, the Pie Tops II are real shoes. Like the original Pie Tops, the Pie Tops II can order pizza — from Pizza Hut, naturally — through a button built into the tongue of one of the sneakers, which connects to your phone via Bluetooth. The Pie Tops II add an additional feature to the left shoe: a second button that can pause your TV (in theory so that you can get off your couch and get your pizza).
The pizza theme carries through to the, shall we say, garish, design of the shoes, which feature a cheese grater-esque mesh, “extreme marinara splash” highlights, and, for an extra dose of complete lack of subtlety, the word “PIZZA” emblazoned on the sides of the shoe. The shoes come in either red or a somehow-even-worse “wheat” tan.
The Pie Tops II shoes are going to be a limited run, similar to their predecessor. Each shoe is custom-made by the Shoe Surgeon. Fifty pairs will be available to purchase through HBX for an unspecified price sometime during the week of March 19th, and additional shoes will be given away via social media.
餡餅二號將和和餡餅一號一樣限量銷售。鞋品牌Shoe Surgeon獨家定制每只鞋子。購物平臺HBX 上售出50雙，價格將于3月19日公布，其他鞋將從社交媒體平臺出售。
