(RNN) - Pizza Hut just announced the release of new shoes for March Madness; Pie Tops, sneakers that can order pizza.

The limited-edition sneakers use geolocation technology to allow wearers to have a pizza delivered to them wherever they may be.

A notification is sent to the Pie Tops app when a wearer presses the Pizza Hut button on the tongue of the shoe.

According to Adweek, the idea originated from advertising agency, Droga5, and was executed by the “Shoe Surgeon” Dominic Chambrone, a designer that is well-known for his trademark custom sneakers.

The shoes will be extremely hard for the public to obtain as only 64 pairs were made to reflect the 64 teams that compete in the NCCA Basketball Tournament.

Former NBA player Grant Hill is featured in in a commercial about the shoes that will air during the tournament.

The shoes will not be released to retail.
