And Now, Basketball Shoes That Can Order Pizza! Anyone? Anyone?

Before you get too angry about this, please note that Pizza Hut has made only 64 pairs of these Pie Top shoes — one for each team in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament (Selection Sunday is March 12). So it’s unlikely that anyone you know will be wearing them.

Unless you’re friends with Chubbs from Teen Wolf or Larry Finklestein from Meatballs.

I believe that Nostradamus predicted that one day we’d develop basketball shoes that can order pizza, and that would portend the end of western civilization. The fact that this is extremely crappy Pizza Hut pizza may delay our doom for a little while, because who is going to be ordering this? Only people who are confused and think the button is for inflating the soles. Engadget:

Pizza Hut just unveiled a pair of Bluetooth shoes, Pie Tops, that order a large pizza for you at the press of a button on the tongue … there’s a mobile app to both set your order defaults and change the button push requirements.

Like most of the company’s publicity grabs, you won’t get to buy these yourself. However, Pizza Hut tells us that there will be a “handful” released to the public at some point in the future.

Poor Grant Hill.
