The sneakers like the golf shoes use sensors to help detect where your weight is and it gives you tips to improve your fitness. The Samsung smart shoe is one of the top smart shoes soon to be on the market, along with the E-ink smart shoe.


Smart Shoe Pricing

The shoe hasn’t even come out on the market yet but it has a price tag ready for when it hits the shelves.  This high technology shoe will be priced around 499 dollars for the E-ink smart shoe.  The Samsung smart shoe is a little less expensive at about 200 dollars.  The difference is that the Volvorii brand is more expensive to begin with which drives up the price of the shoes.  Where as the Samsung shoes are installed into Nike shoes which are slightly expensive but you get the brand name and the technology for less than the E-ink smart shoes.  It also depends on what you kind of smart shoe you want, sneakers or heels? Before it can even come out the developers need a few more thousand dollars to be able to start selling the smart shoe.  They need approximately $50,000 to be able to sell the product.  Once the shoe is on the market they plan to expand the company and variety of shoes they have.

Smart Shoes for Your Girlfriend

Currently the only smart shoes out there are for women.  The heel is the most common form of smart shoe currently and is tested and worn by women.  If the market is profitable in the women’s department then the company is considering expanding to men’s smart shoes.  They just want to test out the smart shoe first and see how it works.  The women’s smart shoe is a start to a whole new world of technology.

Smart Shoes on the Market

Smart shoes have not yet hit the market. The heels and the shift sneakers are both being perfected and have not been completed yet. These high technology shoes may be the answer to many fashionistas or trendy peoples prayers.  Although the shoes are pretty expensive to the average person the shoes may be worth the investment.  Instead of having to buy 10 different heels in different styles and colors you can buy one pair of heels to fit all of your needs.  The same with the shift sneakers, you can buy one pair of sneakers instead of buying five different colored sneakers.  In the long run it may pay off to have the high technology shoes.  These color changing shoes will either be a big hit or may be a failure.  We’ll have to wait and see when they are officially released on the market.


Smart shoes are all the new technology.  Companies around the world are racing to create the best smart shoe and get it out on the market.  The new technology uses smartphones which is a big attraction to many people because it is easy and convenient.  Also, this technology will be big with athletes because not only are they running and golf shoes, they give you advice on how to become a better athlete.  Although, the shoes are not on the market they are starting to become popular.
