The Banana Basics is a pair of shoes in the Splatoon series.
In Splatoon, they are a 1-star item produced by Krak-On and come with the primary ability Bomb Sniffer. They can be purchased from Shrimp Kicks for 400.
In Splatoon 2, they are a 1-star item produced by Krak-On and come with the primary ability Bomb Defense Up DX. They can be purchased from Shella Fresh for 400 or from SplatNet Gear Shop for 1,000.
The Banana Basics are a pair of lo-top canvas shoes. They are mainly yellow but fade to a light green towards the heel, hence the name. The laces are yellow, and the toe cap and sole border are white. The patterned soles are light brown and feature the Krak-On logo in their centers. The Krak-On logo is also featured on a small white tag on the front tongue of the shoe.
The Banana Basics come with Bomb Sniffer as the primary ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Shoes, prevents the wearer from also having Ink Resistance Up or Stealth Jump. As a 1-star item, the Banana Basics come with one additional slot for secondary abilities, which may be increased to a maximum of three slots with a Super Sea Snail or 30,000 cash for each slot. Since they are made by the Krak-On brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Swim Speed Up and a lower chance of rolling Defense Up to fill their secondary ability slot.
The Banana Basics come with Bomb Defense Up DX as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 2, they can have any other primary ability normally available to Shoes. As a 1-star item, the Banana Basics come with one additional slot for secondary abilities, which may be increased to a maximum of three slots with a Super Sea Snail for each slot. Since they are made by the Krak-On brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Swim Speed Up and a lower chance of rolling Bomb Defense Up DX to fill their secondary ability slot.
