Here's some stats I was thinking for this: While attacking it boosts your speed by 10% or so. It can be dropped and picked up.

Only while attacking?  I'm not sure how that will work, some enlightenment?  Perhaps the ability to run across water with the downside of not being able to submerge?

Only while attacking means while your shooting.

Yeah, soldier for example only can shoot 4 rockets and they have a delay between them.  I think it should maybe be the opposite, speed you up when you are not shooting and for 1 second afterward.  That way you don't get permanent speed heavy (unless that was your goal).  How much faster were you thinking?

So is this for the heavy only or should we also be considering different effects for other classes?

I like this better.  Can't be worn with blizzard backpacks / backpacks?

Scout will be booking with these.  And I can see spies becoming pretty deadly.

Well there is a limit in speed and Scout is the fastest any class can go*
*Without getting messy

I was thinking this can be worn in conjunction with other items because technically they are in a different slot. Backpacks, Blizzard Packs, Cows, Spiders all are equipped on your back whereas this is on your feet :)

Can we make it so that if you pick up shoes while you have shoes on you get a temporary speed boost?  So that we don't have a bajillion shoes everywhere?

Sure on pickup of another pair of shoes it could have like 10 seconds or so of +20% speed boost.

I've been on and off coding this and polishing up the animations for when the shoes are on the ground.
Been having to go through the items_game.txt and check to see the speed bonuses and penalties, hmmm I can just parse through it. Hmm I'll sleep on it.

Will be using wings instead of shoes
John2k came up with the new name: Redbull

The dropped model will be a Redbull with the wings (still to do)
With the wings attached it will give you a slightly higher gravity but remember the main purpose of this roll is to increase speed not gravity.

Redbull gives you wings
