Pizza Hut Gives Fans a Slight Chance to Buy Pizza-Ordering Shoes

Playing up their NCAA March Madness partnership, Pizza Hut has come up with Pie Top IIs, the second version of their pizza-ordering basketball shoes with a very limited number being offered for sale to the public.

The first edition, Pie Tops I, came out this same time last year but were only given out to select celebrities and members of the media. Both shoes are embedded with a button that orders pizza (using Bluetooth to connect to your phone and Pie Tops app) but the Pie Tops II can also pause your game (as long as you have that functionality set up with your cable provider and don't want to use the remote for whatever reason).

If the novelty or concept appeals to you, you can try buying one of the 50 pairs that will be available at www.hbx.com, the online curated apparel store from Hypebeast, the week of March 19, 2018. The pizza chain has also been giving out some pairs on its social media channels.

Pie Tops IIs come in two colors: red (inspired by the Pizza Hut logo) and wheat ("one of the most popular new hues to sneaker enthusiasts"). Beyond the above functions, here are some of the features of the new shoes according to Pizza Hut:

- "Extreme marinara splash"
- "Cheese grater mesh"
- "Branded Pizza Hut lace tags"
- "Extra 'cheese pull' laces"
- "Branded inner soles"
- "Mixed material upper – patent, suede, nubuck and gum"
