The wading boots are an item in Pipe Down! They are a pair of white high-heeled go-go boots that come inside a glass box. They originally belonged to Princess Toadstool's uncle, Count Morrelli, who is the Mushroom Kingdom's greatest fisherman. They are one of three pairs of shoes, alongside the army boots and the cowboy boots, that Mario and Luigi can obtain from Toadstool's magic shoe vault. They can be given to the Clawgrip tolling a tunnel, which satisfies it enough that it lets Mario and Luigi pass, or they can be used while Ludwig von Koopa is conducting his ballet. Once Mario pulls them out, they wetly fall to the ground. One of them falls to its side and produces a steady stream of water; the other then falls over to create a school of guppies, creating a small pond full of fish. While Mario and Luigi find it pretty, they realize that it does nothing to stop Ludwig. Toadstool then says that she wanted them to bring the cowboy boots, and in fact, the only way to defeat Ludwig is if the cowboy boots are used.
