Location and Uses

OoT3D Hover Boots Icon.png

The Hover Boots are found within the Shadow Temple in the westernmost room of the first basement floor. The Lens of Truth can be used to see the room's entrance hidden behind a fake wall.[1] They are obtained after defeating Dead Hand.

The Hover Boots allow Link to hover across gaps and over water momentarily.[2] When equipped, they provide no traction, making Link slide when walking or running.[2] Link can be propelled by gusts of wind to cross over larger gaps.[3] The Hover Boots also prevent Link from sinking into the sands of the Haunted Wasteland and the Desert Colossus.[4] They also prevent the platforms in the fire barrier section of Ganon's Castle from sinking.

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, the Hover Boots appear as a Badge. When created, it lengthens the duration of the Focus Spirit of a Warrior.

Trivia

  • In The Wind Waker, Link can achieve a similar effect to the Hover Boots by purchasing a Tingle Balloon using the Tingle Tuner. Doing so allows him to walk across gaps for a period of five seconds as if it were solid ground.
  • In Hyrule Warriors, Young Link momentarily uses winged boots for his sixth Strong Attack combo to move around quickly. These boots bear a resemblance to both the Hover Boots and the Pegasus Boots.
