How to Get Running Shoes in "Banjo-Kazooie"

By Neil Edwards

Travel around the world faster in "Banjo-Kazooie" using Kazooie's Talon Trot technique instead of walking. In Gobi's Valley, Bottles the Mole shows you how to use running shoes that speed up the Talon Trot for a short time. Several jiggies in later levels are only possible to obtain with the extra speed of the running shoes.

Enter Gobi's Valley from Grunty's Lair, then Talon Trot up to the sphinx in front of the oasis you start in.

Climb on top of the Sphinx. You will see a red feather pad on the Sphinx's back.

Jump up in the air on the red feather pad, then fly to the pyramid with a bullseye sticking out of its top. Facing the same direction as the Sphinx, the pyramid is located on your left.

Talon Trot to the back of the pyramid, then walk along the ledge toward the wall.

Walk up to the molehill. Bottles pops out and teaches you how to use the running shoes.
