GPS Wingtips Will Help Point You Toward Home, Are Like Ruby Slippers for Guys

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

If you've ever started stumbling home from the bar and been so drunk you didn't know how to get home, these GPS wingtip shoes from British artist/designer Dominic Wilcox are the perfect invention. Wilcox created the shoes (which have little arrows on them, of course) at the request of the nonprofit Global Footprint Project. The shoes contain GPS technology, which syncs up with a computer. The left shoe points you home, while the right one keeps track of how you're doing.

What's the over/under on Kanye West wearing these?
