The Purple Hi-Horses are a dark blue-purpleish color with a white Zink arrow on each side. There is a smaller version of the Zink logo above the gray lace, and around the lace is neon yellow. The soles are the same color gray as the laces.
The Purple Hi-Horses come with Special Power Up as a main ability when purchased from shops or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 2, this item can have any other ability normally available to Shoes items.
- The Purple Hi-Horses were originally called "Purple Hi-tops", and had either Quick Respawn or Comeback as their main ability; the icon was ambiguous. They were also a 2-star item, and cost 2,000 instead of 800. This can be seen in an image released before Splatoon was finalized.
- This suggests that the other types of Hi-Horses may have also been called "Hi-tops".
