Night Noise Shoes

Shoes that can make night noises

When you are sitting outside on a warm night, you can call to the crickets by rubbing your Night Noise Shoes together.

This is because the inner surfaces of the edges of the soles are textured in such a way as to imitate the sounds of crickets. This idea has no practical value, other than attracting/confusing the local wildlife, or for driving everyone mad in the immediate vicinity.

       I'm not aware that there could possibly be a better defense of an HB idea. [+]

       Why just one noise? An inflatable heel pad could croak like a bullfrog every other step. Build in a few other sound generators and you'd have a pair of musical shoes.
