The Strapping Reds are a pair of flattish shoes with three thick Velcro straps instead of laces and short, blue-gray socks worn underneath. They are mostly red, with a white stripe toward the bottom and a white zig-zag pattern on both sides. On the topmost strap is the Splash Mob logo in white.
The Strapping Reds come with Ink Resistance Up as a main ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of shoes, prevents the wearer from also having Stealth Jump or Bomb Sniffer. As a 1-star item, the Strapping Reds have one additional slot for a secondary ability. Since they are made by the Splash Mob brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) and a lower chance of rolling Run Speed Up.
