The Red Shoes are an anime-only Magic Item.
While wearing the Red Shoes, the user's feet start dancing on their own, with the user having no control over them. The user will thus be able to perform great dance moves whilst wearing these shoes, without having to practice the particular moves beforehand. The activation of the shoes is displayed by the shoes glowing for a brief period. Once wore, the shoes will keep dancing until the user's heart stops, however, their effects can be nullified by the wearer's strong sense of shame. Alternatively, if a person has a strong passion for dance, then they can stop the effects of the shoes freely.
- The Red Shoes are a nod to the fairy tale "The Red Shoes", featuring a pair of red shoes that would make the wearer dance continuously.
- Originally, the Red Shoes took the form of a pair of boots. Cancer modified them into a pair of of slip-on dance shoes, nearly identical to the regular black shoes that Gray was already wearing.
