BATTERY IN HEEL RUNS LIGHT ON SLIPPER
Created originally for a New York theatrical production, illuminated dancing shoes are now on the market. A small bulb on the tip of the shoe is illuminated by a dry cell battery concealed in the aluminum heel. It lights when the dancer kicks the heel on the floor, striking a switch, seen in the photograph below.
