Is Pizza Hut NUTS? Or do we really all need to order pizza by pressing a button on our shoes?


So, this is real. Pizza Hut has launched a pair of running shoes, yup, what our parents used to call “sneakers” that allows you to order a pizza from the comfort of your–shoes! You don’t gotta go no place, you don’t gotta do nothing, just press a button on your shoes (once you tie in your smart shoes with your smart phone) and there’s even a default order in case all you have the energy for is to press the button.

Me, I’ll wait for Sushi Shoes, but I gotta take my hat off to Pizza Hut, not for the shoes but for knowing how to stay in the NEWS!

First learned of this through Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show monologue last week and looked it up. Yup. It’s a thing.

Remember when Maxwell Smart’s shoe phone seemed far fetched on Get Smart?

Is Pizza Hut nuts or brilliant?

  1. The irony: Embedding the very embodiment of unhealthy eating and inactivity in an item that, ostensibly, represents exercise—or at least mobility. There’s no place like America.

  2. Interesting take, Sara Rosinsky. I guess instead of “Just do it”, the motto is “Just don’t do it”, just press a button during the commercial and the pizza will be there before the next commercial.

  3. Take a load off those tired dawgs and use those sneakers to chill and fill those cravings.

    OMG..dying to see what the next invention will be!

  4. Crazy, right, Sharon? I guess that’s where the expression “What will they think of next?” came from.
