Big Ol' Boots are an inventory item in the Baldi's Basics series.


The item resembles a pair of photo-cropped black rubber boots.

When right-clicking with this item selected, the boots will slowly wave over the screen from top to bottom. This ability runs out after 15 seconds, where the boots are then shown waving from the bottom back to the top.

However, even when its ability is still in effect, walking on stationary Gotta Sweep still slows the player down.
