INNOVATION: Why can’t air tags be put in a shoe?

I wonder when someone in the shoe business gets the bright idea to enable shoes for children and mentally disabled adults to have an Apple Air Tag or Tile Tracker to be inserted?  Then when someone goes missing, they can be quickly found.  Seems like an easy design change.  I was thinking about cutting the heel of a sneaker, hollowing out “cave”, putting an Air Tag in, and the epoxy the cut.  I was concerned that it might make the shoe uncomfortable.  I’m going to wait for him to outgrow his current pair and has a new pair ready to put into service. Then do a human factors test,  Laugh!


Found an interesting report of doing this exact idea.
