GPS has made its way to stylish, designer shoes.

Their purpose? To point you in the right direction. Literally.

Here’s the lowdown. It’s a pair of designer shoes with GPS and communicator built in for the two to talk to each other. When you tap the shoes together, it points you to the right direction, which you can transfer to the shoes with a special maps app via a USB connection. The right shoe measures how far (or close) you’re to the destination, while the left shoe points you to the right direction—all with fancy LEDs that light up appropriately with a rechargeable battery.

No word yet on pricing or availability, but we hope they make it to the market soon.

Pretty wild, huh?
