The Intel Curie-powered smart shoes will have a price tag of around 299 Yuan which converts to around $45 USD. But, they might never make it to the U.S market, if they do the price is likely to be higher.

However, the shoe’s official name falls short of memorable with all of its 9 syllables. Xiaomi’s connected kicks are called: 90 Minutes Ultra Smart Sportswear.. Maybe it’s shorter in Chinese..

The companion app provides insights into your activities at the end of your sessions and is compatible with iOS and Android.
The Intel Curie chip inside, not only makes the shoes smart but also allows them to run for up to 60 days before needing a recharge. Intel Curie is set to shake up the world of wearable tech by bringing advanced analysis to to all types of sports, such as Parkour, BMX and snowboarding in the near future.
