Pizza Hut’s magical sneakers are back and this time they have even more power than ever! Like the first pair of Pie Tops, introduced last March, these shoes can order pizza for you at the touch of a button. Well, sort of. They actually send a signal to your phone where you can confirm a pizza order. That’s good enough for us!
The new upgraded sneaker, aka Pie Tops II, also have the ability to pause your TV. That way you don’t have to worry about missing any of your shows when your pizza order actually arrives. So far, they’re compatible with Spectrum, DirecTV, XFinity, Dish, and Fios. Check out the video below to see them in action.
The shoes were designed by Dominic Chambrone and are custom-made by the Shoe Surgeon himself. They come in two colors: red and wheat (you know, the color of pizza crust). Here’s the amazing way Pizza Hut describes their feature: “extreme marinara splash, cheese grater mesh, branded Pizza Hut lace tags, extra ‘cheese pull’ laces, and branded inner soles.” Your feet will never feel more delicious.
While the shoes will be available for public purchase the week of March 19, they’ll be in limited supply. Only 50 pairs will be made, and while the price hasn’t been announced yet, we imagine it’ll cost a lot more than a standard pepperoni pie.
These insane sneakers are all a part of Pizza Hut’s March Madness marketing campaign. They are the official pizza sponsor of the NCAA tournament. (No word on whether any of the players will be decked out in these bad boys.) This announcement comes less than a week after Pizza Hut replaced Papa John’s as the official NFL sponsor, pushing the brand further into the depths of the sporting world. Probably because it takes a lot of extra exercise to work off all those cheesy calories.
