The gadgets are hidden beneath the sole of the each shoe and even the laces of the shoes have been gadgetized.

They’re made out of Kevlar and can be used to cut through wood or plastic – so if you find yourself frequently cable tied, then these are probably the shoes for you.

Not only this, but the shoe also hold the world’s smallest phone – no bigger than your thumb.

Six gadgets can be stored between the shoes and you can choose from: the world’s smallest phone, a tracking device, a Kerv payment ring, a currency capsule, a Swiss Army knife, a torch, a USB stick, a compass,  miniature video camera,  an aftershave atomiser, a miniature pen and a pill case.

Made from deerskin from red deer on Scottish estates, each shoe takes two weeks to be handcrafted by experts.

And if you’re interested, you can also get a fire writer to inscribe your details in the shoe: from name to co-ordinates to blood type.
