"Boots designed for hiking up snowy mountains. They evenly distribute your body weight so you can maintain your normal walking speed over deep snow."
The Snow Boots are a piece of leg armor found in Breath of the Wild. They have a base defense of 3, and they increase Link's walking speed on snow. They can first be obtained after obtaining the Camera Rune by speaking to Bozai outside of the Gerudo Town whilst wearing the Gerudo Veil, Top, and Sirwal, and he will lend Link his Snow Boots in exchange for a promise of a photo of the Statue of the Eighth Heroine. After Link shows this photo to Bozai, he will request the Snow Boots back, in exchange for the Sand Boots.
In order to permanently gain the Snow Boots, Link must return to Bozai after receiving the Sand Boots, whilst still wearing Gerudo Vai garb, and Bozai will ask for a photo of the Sword of the Eighth Heroine. If Link correctly presents an image of this, he will obtain the boots permanently.
The Snow Boots cannot be enhanced when on loan during The Eighth Heroine sidequest, and must be obtained permanently after completing The Forgotten Sword sidequest before enhancing is available. Enhancing Armor requires that Link has unlocked as many Great Fairy Fountains as the desired star-level.
