* ''Videogame/MegaManX'': Part of Dr. Light's PoweredArmor enhancements are Tricked Out Leg Armors. X1's leg armor enables him to dash (a feature X has from the start in later games), X2's lets him do dash in the air, X3's enables 3-way air dash (including upwards), and with the Leg Chip he can either air dash twice or air dash after a dash jump, X4's (both Fourth and Ultimate Armor) gives him air dash and hovering. X5's Falcon Leg lets him ''fly'' (for generous seconds and makes him all but invulnerable during flight) and Gaea Leg makes him immune to spikes, not sliding during wall clinging and able to push certain blocks, X6's Blade Leg enables 4-way very fast air dash that makes him go through enemies and Shadow Leg makes him immune to spikes, not sliding down during wall clinging and a high jump that makes him do CeilingCling, X7's lets him glide in the air, X8's Icarus Leg gives him a higher jump, Hermes Leg gives him faster running speed and ability to dash through enemies, and Ultimate Leg combines the two.
* ''Videogame/MegaManZero:'' the third and fourth game enables enhancements to your armor parts, including your shoes. It ranges from increasing running speed, {{double jump}}ing, jumping on water surfaces, giving friction to FrictionlessIce, protection against blowing winds, dashing through enemies, sliding down walls slower, and, in case of the secret Ultima Chip, ''almost all of the above''.

great place for kids to hang out. They're located in the great outdoors, provide a high vantage point, and are naturally secluded -- but just close enough to sneak into the kitchen for sandwiches and lemonade. They make good clubhouses, and "no babies allowed" is an easy enough rule for them to make when they're up so high. Rope ladder optional -- otherwise just nail a ladder of boards to the trunk. For some reason this trope is prevalent in WesternAnimation.

* ''Series/{{CHiPs}}'' had an episode involving a series of broad-daylight jewelry store robberies. A woman would walk in to the store posing as a potential customer and would eventually ask to see some of the more high-end merchandise. The woman wore platform shoes (it was TheSeventies, after all) with small roller skate wheels hidden in the soles that would pop out when activated. When the store employee came back, she would then grab the items and the skates would allow her to make a fast getaway.
