Leading smartphone maker Chinese company Xiaomi is all set to expand its business in India with the launch of smart shoes. The company has released the official teaser on Monday. The company launched the first-generation Mi Smart shoes under its Mijia brand in China back in 2017. However, Xiaomi brought the successor to its original smart shoes just last year that arrived as the Mijia Sneakers 2 last year.
Company posted a teaser image through the Mi India Twitter account on Monday. The image showcases a shoe and features a tagline that reads, "Ready to put your best foot forward." The company is also using a hashtag #BFF that comes as an abbreviation of the "best foot forward" phrase to suggest the upcoming launch. However, Xiaomi hasn't confirmed the price and launch schedule of its smart shoes in India. The Beijing-based company notably forayed into the market of smart shoes by launching its '90 Minutes Ultra Smart Sportswear' under the Mijia brand.
Talking about the price of the shoes, it carried a price tag of CNY 299 (roughly Rs. 3,200).
last year, Xiaomi expanded its smart shoe lineup by launching the Mijia Smart Sneakers 2 shoes that sport a 5-in-1 uni-moulding design - with a thin polyurethane film separating each mould. The Mijia Sneakers 2 are available in China at CNY 199 (roughly Rs. 2,100).
