The first lot of 3,000 shoes which has integrated GPS system that will help to track down people with dementia who are going out and missing is just transported from the manufacturer called GTX Corporation to the footwear company Aetrex, while plans to develop such product were announced two years ago.

But well in advance of GTX claimed their newest product to public, another manufacturer already thought about other type of people - the prostitutes.
"Our first sandal, the demo version of the future Platform 001 sandal model, was derived from the prostitutes lived in ancient Greece and Roman Empire, who enticed customers with their sandals which left racy "follow me" footprint on the ground," The Aphrodite Project website explains.
"Our modern sandals combine those poetical pictures from antiquity with design and safety features intended to meet the necessities of today's sex employees."
The Aphrodite Project is making sandals which are intended to defend prostitutes with a loud siren to frighten off dangerous attackers and with GPS tracking system that may send warnings in case of the danger.
But along with the usefulness of those shoes another danger may appear.
