You'll never be lost again:

With Wilcox’s No Place Like Home shoes, the magic doesn’t come from clicking your heels twice but from GPS. Program your destination, and the leather footwear will tell you where to go. There’s a GPS receiver in the heel of the left shoe, and a circle of perforations reveal LEDs that light up to indicate the direction to travel. The right shoe indicates distance travelled, with a row of red LED lights that illuminate as the wearer gets closer to home. The leather soles are decorated with doodles of buildings and places in Wilcox’s signature style.
