Miz Mooz claims that no matter where you go, you can just insert the phone in the pre-designed toe section of the shoe. Stretch your leg to the perfect angle and snap away the selfie with touching a motion sensor with your toe.

This has the added advantage of getting a wider angle and having both hands free to be in the selfie.

The shoe portal has a docking socket which will ensure that the phone stays fixed inside the shoe. Both the shoes in the pair will be able to hold the shoe enabling a wider angular range to the user.

The next steps would to make them rechargeable or waterproof. So it is just the start for a new designer range of new kind of technology friendly footwear.
