Not to be confused with Shadow's Air Shoes from Sonic Adventure 2.

Description, Sonic Unleashed[1]

The Air Boost Shoes (エアブーストシューズ Eabūsutoshūzu?) is a Level Up Item for Sonic the Hedgehog in the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version of Sonic Unleashed.


The Air Boost Shoes are a pair of shoes resembling Sonic's Power Sneakers, but with small white wings on the sides. When wearing the Air Boost Shoes, they allow Sonic to use his Air Boost, a variant of the Sonic Boost performed in midair, which can be very useful such as by getting to the next day stage in the same area.


In the Xbox 360/PS3 version of Sonic Unleashed, the Air Boost Shoes can be found Chun-nan's Entrance Stage (In the Wii/PS2 version of the game, Sonic possesses the Air Boost Shoes from the beginning). In order to obtain it, Sonic must possess the Wall Jump Shoes Level Up Item.

Upon entering Chun-nan's Entrance Stage, the Air Boost Shoes can be found on the top of a high cliff to the left. To reach the top of this cliff, Sonic must scale the hollow found in the front of the cliff with the Wall Jump. Once on the top, the Air Boost Shoes are there for the taking.


  • With correct timing, by boosting on the ground, then jumping, then doing a Jump Dash, it is possible for the player to clear the long jump required to get to the seemingly inaccessible area where Dragon Road Act 1 is, making it possible to skip this Level Up Item.
