Abilities

The Bit 'n' Bridle Loafers come with Run Speed Up as the primary ability. As a 1-star item, the Bit 'n' Bridle Loafers come with two additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of them from Crush Station for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 2 stars will add another secondary ability slot for a total of three slots. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since they are made by the Annaki gear brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Sub) and a lower chance of rolling Special Saver to fill their secondary ability slot.

Etymology

"Bit" and "bridle" refer to two separate parts of horse tack. In the case of this gear item, it refers to the golden clasp found on each shoe, which resembles the assembly of a bit. It is also a play on the seahorse theming of the clasps.

Additionally, the style of real-life loafer these shoes are based on, originally created by Italian fashion designer Aldo Gucci, are called "horse-bit loafers" for similar reasons.
