Samsung-sponsored smart golf shoes now on Kickstarter

The Iofit smart golf shoes created by Samsung spin-off Salted Venture tee up on Kickstarter.


Golf is a challenging game but help -- in the form of smart shoes -- is on the way.

Samsung spin-off Salted Venture on Tuesday confirmed its Iofit shoes have landed on Kickstarter and should hit stores in February 2017.

With an expected sticker price of $260, early bird backers of the project should be able to scoop up a pair for a more reasonable $189. Still that's a lot to drop on what are essentially a set of fancy sneakers packed with unique electronics.

For more details on just how these kicks are expected to improve your golf swing, and even weight lifting stats, take a look at our Iofit hands-on.
