Smart sneakers Li Ning Smart Review

Two Chinese giant technology companies Xiaomi and national Chinese sports brand Li Ning worked together on this model and released smart sneakers Li Ning Smart. Let's see what they can do!


Sneakers come in small recycled cardboard box in brown colour which has logo of the company Li Ning. On the side is a special holder for easy shoes carrying.

Inside the box are sneakers themselves (in our review is blue model) and sensor that adds "smartness" to shoes.


Sneakers are in bright blue color, which is very good for running shoes, as a runner will be clearly visible on the road. The sole is made of so-called "foam", it absorbs well and softens feet hitting the pavement and other coverings. Underneath it is protected from abrasion, rubberized inserts of blue and green colors.

Main part of shoes made of synthetic material, which is well blown by the wind while running. On side of the heel there is yellow logo of Li Ning. Trainers are excellent fit and quality stitching, tailoring them to no complaints.

Inside is a removable yellow insole, and in left sneaker under the insole is a special opening for sensor.
