These clever shoes look remarkable like normal tap shoes - but they have a secret. When activated, every heel to toe tap and shuffle is transmitted to a beacon on top of the dance studio/music hall, that then relays to the authorities.
This is handy for dancing spies as well as this rare but possible
scenario : your star dancer has been trapped beneath several tonnes of rubble during an earthquake at the Albert Hall - once activated, the tap, tap, tapping of the shoes in morse code will guide search and rescue teams to their location.
Comes in navy and cinnamon.
||Maybe they'll try that in the next 007 movie.
||This would be more interesting if proposed as a more fun way for telegraphers to work, instead of just tapping the morse code with their fingers.
||Also an alternative: tapped telegrams instead of their sung version (is "sung" a word?).
