Chinese major Xiaomi is expanding its product offering in India by launching its sports shoes branded Mi Menâ€™s Sports Shoes 2. This is the first time these shoes are being sold here. The company has chosen its crowdfunding platform online to sell the product which is being made available in three colours black, grey and blue.
On the pricing front, these shoes are being offered at a discounted price of Rs 2,499, against the market price of Rs 2,999. Xiaomi has set a goal for itself to sell 5000 pairs on the crowdfunding platform and it has crossed that target comfortably with over 7750 orders already booked and counting. The offer on the site is open for another nine days. These orders have come on just day 1 of the 10-day window allowed. The orders being now booked will be delivered from March 15 onwards.
On the basic specifications of the Mi Menâ€™s Sports Shoes 2, Xiaomi claims it has been assembled with 5-in-1 uni-moulding technology that combines five different materials making them shock-absorbent, durable, and slip-resistant. The five are synthetic rubber outsoles, vacuum press midsole, TPU midsole balancing patch, cushion patch, and a PU supporting layer.
Explaining the merits of the accessory, the company says that there is a fishbone structure in these sports shoes and this gives them the ability to offer cushioned comfort to the wearerâ€™s feet, while reducing the chances of accidental sprains. Whatâ€™s more you can even drop them into your washing machine so that it gets cleaned thoroughly. This is made possible due to the fabric that is described as the breathable mesh variety. Xiaomi would like to call its Mi Menâ€™s Sports Shoes 2, ultra-comfortable.
Besides these shoes about which the company had sent out a teaser a day earlier, Xiaomi has brought into the Indian market in recent times, new models of TV, a Mi Soundbar and a fast-charging USB cable.
