18-year-old Siddharth Mandala of Hyderabad has developed an "electroshoe" that will allow women to fend off attackers. One kick with the shoe and it'll deliver a powerful electric shock to an assailant. The shoe also automatically recharges itself through energy harvested from the wearer's footsteps.

So far Mandala has only developed a prototype. And unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any footage of the electroshoe in action.

The idea reminds me of the spiked defense shoes from 1955.

Rosa Klebb's spiked shoes are far more practical. As long as your opponent doesn't have a chair in their hands.


Or a pistol...

Jethro Bodine from the 'Beverly Hillbillies' also had a dagger in his shoe when he was a double naught spy. Unfortunately, he put it in backwards.
