Rock-shell boots are a piece of armour. Players don't need any stat or quest requirements to be able to wear the boots or gloves, unlike the other pieces of Rock-shell armour. The boots can be obtained from Giant rock crabs and King sand crabs as drops or by trading with another player.
The player does not need to wear the boots along with the other pieces of the rock-shell armour set to have an honorific added to their Fremennik name in Rellekka. They are neccessary to make the armour into a set to store in a Costume room.
