How it works

Smart Footwear

The emerging smart footwear is an concept where shoes have the ability to perform different actions.

Different footwear will function differently. One shoe is a fitness shoe. The shoe has to the ablitly to keep up with steps, calories, and etc. Another shos has a tracking device, mainly for kids. There are mutliple shoes will the ability to instantly changle colors and designs by an app.

Benefits

Smart shoes is just an idea right now, therefore there is no price.

A competitive product would be activity trackers. The features in a activity tracker are featured in the smart shoe. However, the smart shoes has more features therefore, you should buy them instead. 

Competitive Products

COST

 

I don't think the footwear will last. People can just buy a activity tracker for a so much cheaper price. I'm pretty sure the shoes will cost a lot, so people would rather buy different shoes. To begin, the shoes may do good, but the hype will began to die over.

Will it last?
