This is not a joke. Pizza Hut is once again releasing their Pie Tops II special edition shoes. The Pie Tops II will be available the week of March 19th.
Last year we saw Pizza Hut release the original Pie Tops, but they were only available through special circumstances. This year it seems that they will be available in two colors, red and wheat, and only 50 pairs will be released!
Pizza Hut says they are keeping the price secret until the release date closes in.
What can the Pie Tops II do, you ask? The shoes connect to your smartphone and with a push of a button located on the right tongue of the shoe, it automatically places an order for a pizza. Of course, you have to confirm the order on the Pizza Hut app before the order is complete.
A new addition to this year’s Pie Tops II is the ability to pause/play live TV with the shoe’s left tongue, which Pizza Hut claims is so you won’t miss any of the basketball action. It connects to the receiver for your cable provider (Direct TV, DISH, Fios, etc.).
It sounds like a goofy joke, but these are real. You may ask yourself, “Who would buy a pair of these ridiculous shoes?”.
No doubt, sneaker-heads will be all over the HBX website, who is said to be the exclusive retailer for the shoes.
