The Purple Hi-Horses are shoes in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.
In Splatoon, they are a 1-star item produced by Zink and come with the primary ability Special Duration Up. They can be purchased from Shrimp Kicks for 800.
In Splatoon 2, they are a 1-star item produced by Zink and come with the primary ability Special Power Up. They can be purchased from Shella Fresh for 1,000 or from SplatNet Gear Shop for 2,500.
The Purple Hi-Horses are a dark blue-purplish 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 Duration Up as a main ability. As a 1-star item, the Purple Hi-Horses have one additional slot for secondary abilities. Since they are made by the Zink brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Quick Super Jump and a lower chance of rolling Quick Respawn to fill their secondary ability slot.
The Purple Hi-Horses come with Special Power Up as a main ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 2, they can have any other ability normally available to Shoes. As a 1-star item, the Purple Hi-Horses have one additional slot for secondary abilities. Since they are made by the Zink brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Quick Super Jump and a lower chance of rolling Quick Respawn to fill their secondary ability slot.
- 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".
