The '''Running Shoes''' (Japanese: '''ランニングシューズ''' ''Running Shoes'') are a piece of equipment developed by the [[Devon Corporation]]. They were introduced in {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}} and have become a standard feature inof allthe [[core series]] games thereafter.
==In the games==
The Running Shoes are typically received shortly after the beginning of the game. In {{3v2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, and {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, the Running Shoes are given by the player's [[mom|mother]] before they leave on the journey. In {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, their [[mom]] sends them to the player via one of [[Professor Oak]]'s aides, who is met in [[Pewter City]], right before entering {{rt|3|Kanto}} and after battling [[Brock]]. In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, they are given by the old man who gives the player a tour of [[Cherrygrove City]]. In {{game|Black and White|s}}, they are given by the player's mother after the player first ventures onto {{rt|2|Unova}}. In {{game|Black and White|s|4=2}}, they are given by the player's mother after the player is introduced to the [[Pokémon Center]] by [[Bianca]]. In [[Generation VI]], although the Running Shoes are no longer a distinct item, the player is still wearing them from the right from the start of the game (as noted by a {{tc|Hiker}} in [[Vaniville Town]] in {{pkmn|X and Y}}) and can use their running ability at any time.

===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
In [[Pokémon Adventures]], {{adv|Ruby}} has a pair of Running Shoes, given to him as a birthday present by his father, [[Norman]]. They, like the in-game ones, allow Ruby to run far faster than normal. The manga also explains that the running shoes use compressed air to propel him.
* In {{3v2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, the instructions [[Mom]] reads are different than the ones on the table in the player's house. Mom reads "Press the B Button while wearing these <sc>Running Shoes</sc> to run extra-fast! Slip on these <sc>Running Shoes</sc> and race in the great outdoors!" while the ones in the house read "Press the B Button to run while wearing your <sc>Running Shoes</sc>. Lace up your <sc>Running Shoes</sc> and hit the road running!"
