Unit repair[edit]

Boots can be repaired in an anvil by adding units of the armor material's repair material, with each repair material restoring 25% of the boots' maximum durability, rounded down.

Mobs[edit]

If a zombie, husk, stray, piglin, or skeleton is wearing armor, there is a 8.5% chance (9.5% with Looting I, 10.5% with Looting II and 11.5% with Looting III) for the mob to drop boots upon death. The boots are usually badly damaged, and may be enchanted.

In Bedrock Edition, vindicators and pillagers that spawn in raids have a chance to drop iron boots, which are usually badly damaged and have a 50% chance to be enchanted.

  1. a b c d e f All enchantments are equally probable, including treasure enchantments (except Soul Speed), and any level of the enchantment is equally probable.
  2. a b c d Enchantment probabilities are the same as a level-20 to level-39 enchantment would be on an enchantment table that had no cap at level 30, and that was able to apply treasure enchantments (except Soul Speed), and where the chance of multiple enchantments is not reduced.

  4. a b The item has between 20% and 65% of its total durability.
  5. The item has between 80% and 100% of its total durability.

Trading[edit]

In Java Edition, novice-level armorer villagers have 40% chance to sell iron boots for 4 emeralds. Apprentice-level armorers have a 50% chance to sell chainmail boots for an emerald. Expert-level armorers always sell enchanted[note 1] diamond boots for 11-27 emeralds. Apprentice-level leatherworker villagers have 23 chance to sell leather boots for 4 emeralds.

Armorer villagers may give the players with the Hero of the Village effect chainmail boots.

In Bedrock Edition, novice-level armorer villagers have a 25% chance to sell iron boots for 4 emeralds. Apprentice-level armorers have a 13 chance to sell chainmail boots for an emerald. Expert-level armorers have a 50% chance to sell enchanted[note 1] diamond boots for 8 emeralds. Apprentice-level leatherworker villagers have a 50% chance to sell leather boots for 4 emeralds.

  1. a b When creating an enchantment offer, the game uses a random enchantment level from 5 – 19. The enchantments are never treasure enchantments.

Bartering[edit]

Piglins may barter iron boots with Soul Speed when given a gold ingot.

Fishing[edit]

Leather boots can be caught as a "junk" item when fishing.

Usage[edit]

Boots can be placed in the fourth armor slot of a player's inventory for activation.

Defense points[edit]

Defense points are each signified by half of a chestplate in the armor bar above the health bar. Each defense point reduces any damage dealt to the player that is absorbed by armor by 4%, increasing additively with the number of defense points. Different materials and combinations of armor provide different levels of defense.

The following table shows the amount of defense points added by boots.

Material
Leather 1 (🛡)
Golden 1 (🛡)
Chainmail 1 (🛡)
Iron 2 (🛡)
Diamond 3 (🛡🛡)
Netherite 3 (🛡🛡)

Durability[edit]

The following table shows the amount of damage each piece of armor can absorb before being destroyed.

Any "hit" from a damage source that can be blocked by armor removes one point of durability from each piece of armor worn. Damage taken that armor doesn't protect (such as falling or drowning) does not damage the armor, even if it is enchanted to protect against that type of damage. The following chart displays how many hits boots can endure.

Netherite armor is not damaged by fire when worn.

Material
Leather 65
Golden 91
Chainmail/Iron 195
Diamond 429
Netherite 481

Repair[edit]

Boots may be repaired by using them along with some of their crafting material (leather, gold ingots, iron ingots, diamonds or netherite ingots) in an anvil. Chainmail boots may be repaired in this way with iron ingots. They may also be repaired by crafting them together with another pair of boots of like material, or with the Mending enchant.

Enchantments[edit]

Boots can receive the following enchantments:

Piglins[edit]

Piglins are attracted to golden boots and pick them up, examining them for 6 to 8 seconds. Other boots do not attract piglins but can be worn by them. They prefer stronger boots over weaker boots, with one major exception: They always prefer golden boots over all other boots, throwing out stronger boots to equip them. Enchanted boots are preferred over unenchanted boots.

Powder Snow[edit]

Grass Block JE7 BE6.png
This section describes content that may be included in a future update to Bedrock Edition.
These features have appeared in Bedrock Edition development versions, but the full update containing these features has not been released for Bedrock Edition yet.

Leather boots can be used to safely cross powder snow without sinking in it. The block will act similarly to scaffolding, allowing the player to sink in by pressing crouch and move up by pressing jump.
