Sun-Chasing Boots 追日靴.jpg

The Sun-Chasing Boots were the boots worn by the giant Kua Fu (夸父 kuā fù) in the story "Kua Fu Chases the Sun" (夸父追日 kuā fù zhuī rì). They  are said to grant the wearer tremendous speed.

With these boots on the wearer is said to be able to cover a distance of 1,000 leagues during the day time, and a distance of 800 leagues during the night.

In one version of the story, Kua Fu took his boots off and shook the dirt that had accumulated in them out on the ground and formed a mountain.
