Xiaomi has launched a non-gadget this time. This offbeat device is called Xiaomi Mi Men’s Sports Shoes 2. The shoes have been incorporated with Uni-Moulding Technology which helps it to absorb shocks. At the same time the shoes are slip-resistant and water-resistant. One of the key highlights is that the shoes can be washed in a washing machine without causing any damage. There are layers that have been combined in order to include synthetic rubber outsoles, vacuum press midsoles.
Also, the combined layers include TPU midsole balancing patch, cushion patch and PU supporting layer. The Xiaomi Mi Men’s Sport Shoes 2 has a 10-fishbone structure that, according to Xiaomi, provides support for the arch. At the same time, the fishbone structure helps maintaining balance and reducing chances of sprain. The reason behind the Xiaomi Mi Men’s Sport Shoes 2 being washing machine-washable is, that it is made of mesh fabric. The shoes are available for sale via Xiaomi’s crowdfunding platform at an introductory price of Rs 2,499.
The Xiaomi Men’s Sports Shoes are touted to have been manufactured with the help of 5-in-1 Uni Moulding Technology. Such kind of production is cost-effective and involves combining moulds of different material into a single layer.
The Xiaomi Mi Men’s Sports Shoes come in three colour options—they include black, blue, and grey. The black colour option has a uniform paint of black till the sole. On the other hand, the blue and grey versions have a white sole. The maximum size of these sports shoes is 11 number (UK) and as mentioned, can be bought through the website.
Xiaomi has set a target for selling as many as 5,000 units and the listing for the Mi Men’s Sports Shoes 2 will be live for five days. The original pricing of the Xiaomi Mi Men’s Sports Shoes is Rs 2,999. This price will eventually be established for the product from its current price that is Rs 2,499.
