Electronic Arts has partnered with Addidas to launch smart insoles that will track player performance in FIFA Mobile.

The product's existence was confirmed after an initial tease was posted to Instagram last week. The Addidas GMR insoles will utilise Google Jacquard tracking tag technology to measure user's performance through movements, such as ball control and kicks.

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala makes an appearance at the end of the video, with the player unlockable in-game for those that purchase the footwear.
