The BlobMob Flip-Flops were first revealed in the announcement trailer for Splatoon 3 on 17 February 2021. Their name was revealed in the Splatoon 3 Direct.


The BlobMob Flip-Flops come with Ink Resistance Up as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, they come with any other primary ability normally available to Shoes. As a 0-star item, the BlobMob Flip-Flops come with one additional slot 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 1 or 2 stars will add a secondary ability slot per level, up to a maximum 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 Emberz gear brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Intensify Action and a lower chance of rolling Special Charge Up to fill their secondary ability slots.

Translation notes
