The Sprint Shoes from Final Fantasy VII.

Everyone likes the man who gets his work done quick. That's why no one used to like me, I suppose, and the very reason why I'll never let go of my Hermes Sandals. I hear it only takes gysahl greens to make them, but given their price, there's gotta be more to 'em than just some tasty greens!
