Shoe design

Contest Closed
Description:
I am looking to explore the idea of "reinventing" shoes. I'm looking to create a shoe that turns from a heel to a flat. In order to do so i need a mechanism for the heel to flip out and lock into place from a groove on the sole of the shoe. The heel itself would be based on a lever where you can push the heel into a groove of the bottom of the shoe to make the shoe a flat. Then click it out using a very simple unlocking system on the sides of the shoe ( a bit like when you unclick the lid of a calpol bottle pressing on both sides) to make it into a heel.
Wants:
Ideally what i am looking for is a mechanism that locks and unlocks a heel into place using 2 buttons on both sides of the shoe to be pressed to release. The heel must have a 90 degree flexibility and support the weight of a woman when clicked into place. To bring the heel into its groove again to make a shoe a flat, i would like to use the weight of a person to press down at an angle onto the heel a bit like a spring (using their feet as a force) in order to lock the heel back in.
Ask for Sample:
A sample would be great with a paper copy with a diagram showing how the sample was assembled together.
Software:

SolidWorks Simple Box with 2 Cords - Freelance 3D Designer Contest
Keep the dimensions of the box exactly as they are in the 2D version (they are in imperial but can be changed to metric in the solidworks file) I'm looking for a clean 3D Solidworks file of the exterior with the 2 cords that can pull out almost to look like an assembly drawing in Solidworks. I'm not looking to get detailed on what the product is or how it will work, but the top port is a Micro USB, and the bottom port is a Lightning USB. The notches on both are for fingernails and a cord will pull out. There is a very small power button on the bottom and 4 LED lights on the back side that I will update soon. I'm looking for conceptual nice looking design to use for sale of the product.
