Airport security is weird. Last thing I need is some guard thinking the shank is some metal knife embedded in my shoe and pry the sole apart.
I remember coming back from a conference is Mexico and while in Mexico City (before returning to US soil), security held me up, took a small canister, pulled out a damp looking piece of cloth, wiped my shoes with the cloth, then placed it back in the canister before telling me to leave. I still don't know what it was for. I doubt it was complementary Reno treatment...
