The Faux Sharkskin Platfins come with Ink Resistance Up as the primary ability. As a 1-star item, the Faux Sharkskin Platfins 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. 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 amiibo gear brand, they have equal chances to roll any secondary ability.



  • Concept art of an Inkling wearing Shiver's amiibo gear set can be seen in The Art of Splatoon 3; the artbook showing this concept art was released before the Deep Cut amiibo were officially announced.
  • The Faux Sharkskin Platfins have the tallest soles of any shoes currently in Splatoon 3.
  • The hole space in the Faux Sharkskin Platfins' underside resembles the holes found in okobo, wherein small bells are typically placed.


"Platfin" is a portmanteau of "platform", referencing the tall soles, and "fin", referencing the fins on sharks.
