Maxwell Smart's shoe phone would be a handy gadget, but you don't always need a phone. For other moments of crisis, there's the Johnnie Tan Leather Brogue, a shoe from the Oliver Sweeney brand of shoes and the Johnnie Walker brand of whisky. The heels contain tiny compartments for storing whisky bottles. The sides have the Johnnie Walker striding man trademark and the bottoms of the shoes are transparent, which would seem to diminish their effectiveness at concealment.
