The Dunerider Boots are an accessory that increases the player's maximum movement speed. It can be found in Sandstone Chests in the Underground Desert, and in Oasis Crates or Mirage Crates.

When equipped, it grants the following bonuses:

  • Increases the player's maximum movement speed to 22.5 tiles/second (31 mph)
  • When moving on any Sand, Sandstone, or Hardened Sand, increases maximum movement speed by 15% (to 39.38 tiles/second or 54 mph by default) and increases acceleration and deceleration by 75%, from 0.3 tiles/second² to 0.525 tiles/second² and from 0.75 tiles/second² to 1.3125 tiles/second², respectively

  • The significant movement speed bonus on sand is unique to the Dunerider Boots. Combining them with Rocket Boots to craft the Spectre Boots will remove it, hence it may be better to use another type of boots to craft the Spectre Boots.
  • Using Dunerider Boots alongside Sand, Sandstone, or Hardened Sand runways could be considered a pre-Hardmode alternative to Asphalt.


  • The Dunerider Boots' tooltip is a reference to the science fiction media franchise Dune. The deadly sandworms in Dune are attracted to rhythmic vibrations in the sand, which indicate the movement of prey. To escape the notice of the sandworms, a traveler in the desert must learn to "walk without rhythm" in a manner that simulates the natural sounds of the desert.
