These GPS shoes for children help parents keep track of their kids while kids get to be stylish on the playground. Budiu graphic sneakers have a GPS tracking system embedded in them so parents can keep on top of their offspring's location.

Developed by Angela & Lucas, every pair has an integrated GPS chip in the tongue that is capable of narrowing down the shoe's location within 3 meters outside and 50 meters inside. The GPS shoes are paired with a smartphone app that parents or guardians can use to find their kid on a map. They are also able to message the child through the app. If shoes get left behind or lost, this app will be able to locate them as well.

This product is being marketed as footwear but more so as a service.
