Maxwell Smart had one so why can’t I? The shoe phone is freaking awesome! Maybe it’s not the most practical thing in the world but it’s cool!

IMG_2139I basically built this thing in secret, nobody knew about it. So the first time I unveiled it was pretty freaking hilarious. I was out to a fancy dinner with my girlfriend Rosie. We were all dressed up and celebrating our anniversary. I asked a friend to call me at exactly 8:17pm. When 8:17 rolls around I get a phone call (I made sure to have the ringer all the way up so everyone in the restaurant could hear it). I let it ring a few times before I bent down, took off my shoe, removed the heal, and answered the call.

Nobody knew what the heck was going on! Not even Rosie. I had a short conversation, hung up, put my shoe back on, and continued on with the dinner. It was great! I highly recommend doing something like this yourself.

I made it using an old bluetooth headset like this one. Just take it apart and stick it inside the heel of your shoe.
