Sailfish Boots are boots that allow the user to run super fast. You can get this item from Wooden Crates and Iron Crates. When the user is running fast they get water particles coming out of their backs. After a build-up, the user can run up to a maximum speed of 31 mph without other movement accessories. Hermes Boots, Sailfish Boots and Flurry Boots are functionally identical, and are interchangeable when crafting Spectre Boots.
- This item increases the player's base speed from 15 mph to 30 mph.
- Sailfish Boots can be equipped with the Hermes Boots or Flurry Boots, but these effects do not stack.
- Sailfish Boots, as well as Hermes Boots and Flurry Boots, are particularly useful for speedruns, as they can greatly shorten running time.
