Fallout 2 (left) and Fallout Tactics version (right)
A pair of sturdy rubber work boots. They'll keep the sludge out, at least for a while.”— In-game description
With these old wading boots, you can walk on puddles of toxic waste safely until they melt.
They do nothing to insulate you from electrically charged floors however.
- Two pairs of boots can be found in Trapper Town in Klamath.
- Another pair can be found in a locker in the caves themselves.
- Smiley also has a pair if you wish to steal them, but you should let him keep them since you'll be taking him out of the caves.
- Another pair can be dug up from the the Den's graveyard.
The boots help greatly in the toxic caves, where puddles of waste are plentiful.
