Can you spot why these heels won’t fly?
The high heels appear to not be shoes at all but, rather, poorly disguised guns. Which, of course, do not belong on a plane.
But these heels aren’t harmful, except maybe to the feet of the person wearing them. They’re actually what the TSA calls replica guns. But replica guns aren’t allowed on planes either. So they were confiscated.
A photo of the heels was tweeted by a Transportation Security Administration public affairs representative with the caption, “Also, what not to wear through a #LGA checkpoint.”
