CES 2018: Don't worry, you won't have to throw away your stupid shoes

Only elite athletes need apply.

Samsung appears set to announce Smart Shoes at CES 2019.  (MSPoweruser, 12/30/2018)
Samsung has been dabbling with various fitness sensors in clothing and shoes for some years now, and it appears the company may be ready to release a set of trainers with built-in sensors to help elite athletes stay on top of their game.

Does the future of wayfinding involve smart shoes?  (Brand Culture, 11/30/2016)
Imagine a pair of smart shoes that connect wirelessly to your smartphone’s navigation app, like Google Maps or Apple Maps. In countries where the wayfinding signage is in English, locating your destination is easier, but what if you’re in a foreign country where the signage is in another language? When smart shoes become mainstream, you’ll be able to key in the location you want to visit or just key the location of your hotel, and at the end of the day, your smart shoes will find your way home without seeming lost and frazzled.
