Reversible-sole shoes

Make the soles of shoes reversible - confuse Shelock Holmes at crime scene
  [vote for,

make shoes such that the soles can rotate 180 degrees.

then as u walk away from the crime scene, the foot trails will appear like u were walking towards the crime scene..

u can also use this to confuse people in many other situations..

       Rather an old joke, don't you think?

       Cedar, "Device to aid in the commission of a crime" is not grounds for deletion. You need to remove that.

       On line.   

       Hey, he doesn't need funny shoes to do that.

       Or you could just have shoes that leave an ostrich shaped print that will really confuse Holmes

       Didn't Wile E. Coyote do this?
You seem to have dropped these: "y" "o".

       Baked, amazingly, by the Soviet special forces. There is a joke too...   

       A lone soldier is crossing Dartmoor, trying to evade the "enemy". He comes to a patch of snow.   

       If he walks straight across, he's ordinary infantry.   

       If he makes a point of avoiding it, he's a Para.   

       If he turns round and walks backwards, he's SAS.   

       (Substitute Corps, Regiment, nationality as appropriate)

       Wouldn't this fail to confuse anyone but the most inexperienced observer, since the depth of an imprint depends on the direction of movement?
