The Strapping Reds are a pair of flattish shoes with three thick Velcro straps instead of laces and short, blue-gray socks worn underneath. They are mostly red, with a white stripe toward the bottom and a white zig-zag pattern on both sides. On the topmost strap is the Splash Mob logo in white. The sole has a red stripe going around the entire shoe.
The Strapping Reds come with Ink Resistance Up as the primary ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Shoes, prevents the wearer from also having Bomb Sniffer or Stealth Jump. As a 1-star item, the Strapping Reds come with one additional slot for secondary abilities, which may be increased to a maximum of three slots with a Super Sea Snail or 30,000 cash for each slot. Since they are made by the Splash Mob brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) and a lower chance of rolling Run Speed Up to fill their secondary ability slot.
The Strapping Reds come with Ink Resistance Up as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 2, they can have any other primary ability normally available to Shoes. As a 3-star item, the Strapping Reds come with three additional slots for secondary abilities. Since they are made by the Splash Mob brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) and a lower chance of rolling Run Speed Up to fill their secondary ability slots.
