Xiaomi has making a number of unorthodox products of late including the Mi Water Purifier, Mi Scale, and Smart Shoes etc. Sadly most of their products are still limited to China. However there seems to be an alternate way of getting your hands on the Li Ning made smarts hoes.
The Li Ning smart shoes were first launched back in July in China. The smartphone maker had apparently supplied a fitness tracker chip attached to the sole of the Li Ning made sport shoes. As a matter of fact the chip was made by Huami, a Xiaomi subsidiary who also makes the Mi Band and the Mi Band Pulse.

The Smart Shoes can track your steps and a calories burnt while you walk or exercise while wearing these shoes. Furthermore Li Ning has made these shoes waterproof as well as sweat proof.
Apparently the Li Ning Shoes which was launch back in July this can now be imported worldwide via a GearBest. The basic edition smart shoes is priced at $44.04 (Rs 2,860 approx.) At this price point it is a shoes that worth trying. In fact shoes from reputed players like Reebok, Adidas, Puma end up costing the same in India and that too without a fitness tracker in-built.
Nevertheless do bear in mind that you may end up being charged customs charges on importing them to India. However in most occasion you will get away without incurring customs duties. Just in case you do end up being charged custom the charges would be nominal for a shoe.
The Li-Ning made shoes are available in six different colours namely - Blue, Neon Green, Red, Black, Green and Orange.
