Great little educational tool for the kiddies. A switch sealed in each heal and a little speaker on top. Each time the kid takes a step, it tells them which is right and which is left. That ought to drum it into them pretty quick. Also, you can include a special message for when the switches are pressed too quickly in succession; "Stop running, you little b*****d!"

       Quite confusing for a little tyke who might put on shoes backwards.
Howsabout a lace tension sensor? "Tie your laces, or you'll trip over them!" I've seen 14-year-olds who need this feature.
