PIZZA HUT DIPS INTO SMART FOOTWEAR

The sneakers called The Pie Tops have a built-in Bluetooth radio that syncs to a mobile device with the Pizza Hut app. To place an order, the wearer presses the red circle on the tongue of the shoe and to receive whatever order they have pre-saved in the app.  The wearer must then unlock their smart phone to confirm the location and sooner or later they will have pizza. The sneakers are hand-stitched by “Shoe Surgeon” Dominic Chambrone. The Pie Tops were created as part of an ad campaign starring Grant Hill, a retired basketball player. You can also order pizza through Twitter, Amazon Echo, Facebook Messenger and more. A limited number of the sneakers have been created and given only to an exclusive group of media to promote.
