Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

Wading Boots (aka Swamp Boots) are rubber boots that are worn to protect Banjo and Kazooie from various otherwise-damaging terrain, such as Piranha Water in Bubblegloop Swamp, while using the Stilt Stride ability.

The boots are time-limited, so the pair must work quickly to cross the terrain before they expire. Pressing B button (N64) will end the effect early before the time limit has expired. Wearing Wading Boots causes Kazooie to walk slower than usual in Banjo-Kazooie, while there is no speed change in Banjo-Tooie. However, jumping is impaired in both games. When alone, Kazooie can use the boots but Banjo cannot.

The Wading Boots appear much less in Banjo-Tooie due to the abundance of liquid hazards that would make the boots useless. While they appear multiple times in 6 different areas in Banjo-Kazooie, including Grunty's lair and are useful in all cases, they only appear in 3 areas in Banjo-Tooie, with one instance being the move tutorial. Also unlike Banjo-Kazooie, they only appear once in these areas, meaning they appear much less in the sequel.
