Known as the Pie Tops II, the shoes retain the same functionality of allowing its users to order pizza straight from the sneakers. However, they're not just any pair of sneakers from the pizza giant. Interestingly, the Pie Tops II boast of another feature as well: they can pause your TV. Well okay, it wasn't quite that simple-the shoes actually send a signal to your phone, which you can confirm to get a single pizza delivered to your home.
Pizza Hut, if this wasn't already clear, is the official pizza of the NCAA March Madness and the Final Four.
Complete with cheese-grater mesh and extreme marinara splash
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. Pizza Hut will make 50 pairs available on www.hbx.com, the fashion and lifestyle global e-commerce site from Hypebeast, the week of March 19.
This year, Pizza Hut has taken things up a notch in the name of never missing a second of March Madness. Those that aren't feeling the red colorway will be able to pick up a pair in the new light brown variant dubbed "Wheat". Keep your eyes on the Pizza Hut Twitter account as well as their Instagram page in the coming days for more details. Upon ordering, customers can avail of a two $5.99 two-topping medium pizza deal during the tournament duration.
