No, these are not ni-tech, electronic maps to be used on a cell phone or a hand-held portable. These are not even folded paper road maps. Judi Werthein, a artist / designer, has created colourful shoes for use by Mexicans looking to cross the border into the United States, complete with a removable insole that carries a map of the border area and a mini compass and flashlight. Selling for $215 US in a San Diego boutique, these shoes are being given away for free to would be migrants in Mexico before they cross the border.

The question is: does scale or map extent vary with the shoe size?
