Lke the vast majority of the available accessories, Elevating shoes can be created through Alchemy; through a lucky Sweet Success creation, it can be made from the start already at a rank of +1, then with successive melding with other copies of itself, an individual pair of Elevating shoes can be ugraded to up to a +3 rank, adding a total of 3 other additional effects to their base one; these effects are chosen at random from a pool of possible bonuses available for this particular accessory, the Eleveting shoes having additional percentaces of extra experience among the possible bonuses.

In order to create a pair, at least one of its recipe variants is necessary to having been found.

The Quick recipe, like all Quick recipes except for the Gold ring, can be bought by exchanging Mini medals, 15 in this case; alternatively, like its counterparts, the Classic recipe and the even better Luxury recipe, it can be found very rarely as a secret drop from Metal slimes, Liquid metal slimes, or Metal king slimes. Alternatively, all of these recipe variants could potentially be found inside a treasure chest, but even more rarely than from the enemy drops.

As such, since it is not ideal to find as a drop a Quick recipe that could had been purchased instead, it is preferable to spend some Mini medals and learn the Quick recipe as soon as possible, thusly increasing the chances for the monsters to drop the better, rarer quality recipes rather then the ones that are already more easily accessible.

Dragon Quest Heroes II[]

The Elevating shoes return once again as an accessory in Dragon Quest Heroes II, being exclusively obtained as a rare drop from the Liquid metal slimes. They offer a +20% more experience to the character that has them equipped, and can be stacked with the effect of the Elevating Orb from Maxi Malone, which adds another +5%.

Unlike most of the other Accessories available the Elevating shoes, like the Gospel ring, cannot be further enhanced through the use of Alchemy, having only its initial node in the bonus grid.
