What's amazing with shoes is the stuff you can put on and in them. Included are retractable and attachable items. Alternatively, they can be magical or run on AppliedPhlebotinum.

Can overlap with NiceShoes (if the shoes are pimped out enough), ShoePhone (if the item is actually a shoe).

Compare JetPack (which covers Rocket Boots), TrickedOutGloves, ArmedLegs, ShoeSlap. See also MagicalAccessory.
