The sneakers pair up with the wearer’s smartphone and a Pie Tops app for both Android and iOS. By pressing a button placed on the tongue of the right shoe, the order of Pizza Hut’s $5.99 deal of two-topping medium pizzas would be placed. The app would open up to verify the order and the address. Also, another button on the tongue of the left shoe will allow the wearer to pause live TV when the pizza arrives on the door, not letting the wearer miss on anything. DVR receivers from various firms including DirecTV, Spectrum, Xfinity, Fros and Dish will support the shoes, reported USA Today.
