James Bond-style shoe comes equipped with hidden spy gadgets and laces that cut through wood

What do you buy the man who has everything for Christmas? How about a pair of shoes James Bond would be proud of?

Shoemaker Oliver Sweeney and luxury website VeryFirstTo.com have teamed up to create "The Secret Shoe," adorned with a secret compartment. What's inside? According to Forbes Magazine, it's packed with the kind of gadgets and gizmos that could help in everyday emergencies; from losing your jacket on a night out to being mugged, car-jacked or kidnapped.

The gadgets are hidden within the shoe and covered with the inner sole, which can be easily peeled back ensuring they remain a secret to everyone but the owner.

The secret shoe appears to be an unassuming half boot hand made from deerskin with three gadgets in each shoe chosen from a selection of twelve including the world's smallest mobile phone, miniature spy video camera, swiss army knife, gps tracking device, bank notes and a contactless payment ring.

In addition to the items hidden within the shoe, the laces themselves are made of kevlar and can act as a friction saw cutting through wood or plastic, should you ever find yourself zip-tied.

Even the soles of the shoes can be personalized with fire writing the kind of details a forgetful spy might need reminding of such as blood type or gps co-ordinates.

And the good news for the diminutive spy is their secret shoes will add two inches their height.

The bad news? A pair will cost a pretty penny. According to Forbes, they'll run you about $2,700. Being a spy isn't cheap.
