Krak-On is one of the older fashion houses in Inkopolis and has quickly become popular with squids who can effortlessly mix grandpa’s hand me downs with more cutting edge new pieces. Krak-On’s Basics line is a favorite across multiple generations of Inklings.

Krak-On (Japanese: クラーゲス Kurāgesu) is a brand within Splatoon and Splatoon 2, and the designer of the Krak-On Splat Roller. Krak-On gear has a 5x five times chance of getting S2 Ability Swim Speed Up.png Swim Speed Up as a sub-ability, and a 1/2x chance of getting S Ability Defense Up.png Defense Up as a sub-ability in Splatoon, and S2 Ability Bomb Defense Up DX.png Bomb Defense Up DX (formerly S2 Ability Bomb Defense Up.png Bomb Defense Up) as a sub-ability in Splatoon 2.

Krak-On's focus seems to be retro footwear that is usually alternative or quirky in its style, with such shoes as clogs, canvas high-tops, and canvas slip-ons. This retro theme is even continued with a Waistcoat and a Work cap.

According to SplatoonJP, Krak-On mainly produces natural-style shoes. [2]

  • The name Krak-On is likely a pun on the legendary sea monster kraken and "crack on" as words of encouragement. This is further supported by the fact the Krak-On Splat Roller has the Kraken as it's Special Weapon.
  • Krak-On produces the most shoes of any brand, selling 13 different items.
  • It has been speculated that Krak-On's logo and some of its products are based on the real-life footwear brand, Converse.
