LED shoe Brake light

I wanted to make LED 'brake lights' one for each shoe that light up when you stop walking but it needs to not trigger when you step when walking only when you stop, how would I do this?

magnetic reed switch (?) - using a circuit which involved both shoes...

Have sensors in the shoes that sense when they're parallel. When walking your shoes will be offset when they hit the floor. When you stop you'll bring your feet together. Detect when your feet are together not when they impact the floor.

Couldn't i use 555 timers or capacitors, so after a 3 second delay they light up?
