just in time for march madness, pizza hut and their collaborator, shoe surgeon, have given fans a chic, functional little accessory. connect your phone. select your pizza. sync your shoes’ bluetooth and, uh, presto. your pizza hut app will order you a pizza hut pizza, thanks to your pizza hut shoes, all while watching march madness — brought to you in-part by pizza hut. 50 pie tops will be available for purchase on hbx.com, toward the end of march — potentially more to follow later in the year.
