The Dash Socks are an item in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. Mario, Luigi, and Paper Mario get them from a trio of Paper Toads in Sunbeam Plains. They are activated by holding after using a Team Jump. The Dash Socks can be used to run at high speed, bloom Spinny Flowers for Coins, or use catapults. In certain missions, pressing , or while dashing will cause the Mario Bros. to slide, which is useful for catching fleeing Paper Toads and Nabbit. Dashing into an enemy on the overworld initiates a First Strike in which all three dash straight into the field enemy on the battle screen and inflict damage. However, dashing into a spiked enemy will cause the Mario Bros. to take damage.
The Dash Socks' mechanics cannot be used when Mario and Luigi are separated from Paper Mario in Gloomy Woods, or if Paper Mario is in a secluded area by himself.
