Swiss Army Boots

This would be a set of boots (winter boots, ski boots, work boots) that have hard, cup-shaped removable pieces that can be stored over the toes. The two of them can be assembled together to produce a wide scoop.

In the side of the boot (or stored in the heel), there would be tubing that would attach as a handle (either telescoping or screws together like a pool cue).

Yours for only 3 easy payments of $9.95. But wait, there's more! Act now and you also get additional attachments which store to the sides or within various parts of the heel.

An ice scraper attachment for that same tube handle.

Two one-way valves into and out of the air-soles, with a piece of tubing and every step you take can help inflate a tire or air-mattress.

A toe-controlled dual-kickstand that deploys out of the boot, with adjustable heights to act as a poor-man's cruise control while driving.

Bottle cap opener (the obligatory multi-tool feature).

       //Be a real life Maxwell Smart// I'm flattered. But is this really a wise objective?

       Sorry guys, I'll check out my ideas more thoroughly before posting next.   

       Swiss Army Bagpipes would be great! My first move would be to attach a different instrument.
