This smart sneaker concept does more than connect to your smartphone -- it is also capable of syncing with Pokemon Go. Based in New York, startup Vixole designed a shoe that has a built-in digital interface that allows you to easily customize the way your footwear looks and express yourself in new ways. Now Vixole has taken that idea to the next level by enabling the sneakers to be Pokemon Go-enabled.

This is not the first wearable accessory to pop up surrounding the viral augmented reality game app, but it is an interesting way to repurpose the smart sneaker sensors and mobile connectivity. Although the shoes are not yet available, the concept shows how wearable technology and games can come together.
