"You going to wear that while you fight crime? Those heels could be deadly weapons."

''"What is currently sticking in your foot is a Mitzi 'Pretty Lucretia' four-inch heel, the most dangerous footwear in the world. But what should really worry you is that I was forced practically at knifepoint to take ballet lessons as a child, which means I can kick like a mule...and I have another shoe."
—Adora Belle Dearheart, Going Postal
"Elizabeth's shoes: These spiked-heel artifacts function, when paired, as Slippers of Spider Climb (q.v.) and confer a 15% bonus to movement-based Thieves Abilities. As thrown weapons, they have an effective range of 5′ and cause 2d4 damage at +1 to hit. As bludgeoning or piercing weapons (armor type penalties apply) they cause 4d4 damage at +1 to hit. When used against orange goblins they function as Power Word Kill magic user spell, with no saving throw applicable. Each shoe has 1-12 charges that can be expended once per day to cast Charm Person per magic user spell, at 20th level ability."
"You won't last two minutes out here. Especially in those ridiculous shoes."
— Owen Grady, Jurassic World

"Oh, trust me, anytime anyone on set complains like, 'This is really hard; I'm getting tired,' I'm like, 'Everything you're doing, I'm doing in stilettos, OK? I'm doing as much as you. All these stairs we're walking up, I'm doing it in heels.'"
