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, but the yellow laces remain the same. The toe cap and sole border are white. The patterned soles are light brown and feature the Krak-On logo in the middle of them. The Krak-On logo is featured on a small white tag on the front tongue of the shoe.
The Banana Basics come with Bomb Sniffer as a main 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 have one additional slot for secondary abilities. 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.
