The Department of Homeland Security has put out an advisory to airlines in the last 12 hours, to be aware of talk about explosives in shoes.

Department officials say this is not a new threat, and officials tell CBS News that no direct threat has been made.

But some discussion was threatening enough to cause feds to issue a warning to airlines and security officials around the world, for all flights bound for America.

If you're flying anytime soon, we're learning you could see more pat downs and shoe checks as a result.
