Red/Blue Jade Artifact Boots •••

Dragon Treads to Victory are a pair of lightly armored artifact military boots which were crafted by a Shogunate-era dragonblooded infantry officer after suffering through a prolonged and grueling campaign. They leverage the mystical characteristics of the Red and Blue Jade incorporated into their construction to provide enhanced mobility and to offset the effects of fatigue resulting from spending long periods of time on the march.
