In 1993, Jackson, along with two other inventors, Michael L. Bush and Dennis Tompkins, filed for a patent on the “anti-gravity” shoes they invented.

These special shoes had a triangular groove in the heels that caught onto a bolt projecting from the stage floor that allowed Jackson and his dancers to lean forward beyond the center of gravity. The King of Pop used this gravity-defying illusion to wow audiences in live performances of the song Smooth Criminal.
