The Frostspark Boots are a highly useful accessory for movement. It allows faster ground speed, flight, and mobility on ice. The Frostspark Boots can be acquired in pre-Hardmode and can be combined with the Lava Waders, on PC, Console, Mobile, and tModLoader, to create the Terraspark Boots.
To craft the Frostspark Boots, you will need the following materials:
- Rocket Boots
- Hermes Boots or Flurry Boots or Sailfish Boots or Dunerider Boots
- Anklet of the Wind
- Ice Skates

Step 1: Spectre Boots
There are four types of base level running boots that exist which increase the player's movement speed by a very high margin, allowing them to sprint. All four of these boots have the same effect (except for the dunerider boots, which grant even more speed on sand) and can be used interchangeably in crafting.
The Hermes Boots are likely the first variety of sprinting boots that the player will encounter, and are very easy to discover early on. They can be found in Gold Chests in underground cabins that can generate in all biome undergrounds, except for the Ice biome.
Flurry Boots are also very easy to encounter in the early game generating within Frozen Chests, acting as an Ice biome counterpart to Hermes Boots. Since the Ice biome often spreads underneath the spawn point even if the player does not spawn directly within the Snow biome, Flurry Boots are highly likely to be encountered if the player tunnels down deep enough near spawn. However, one should be careful, as the Snow biome is on the same side as the Dungeon, so the player should take care not to enter the Dungeon and wake the Dungeon Guardian if the player has not yet defeated Skeletron.
The Sailfish Boots are obtained from opening Wooden Crates and Iron Crates found via fishing, and are semi-common rewards from opening them, with a 2.5% chance of being received from the former and a 5% chance of being received from the latter. The Wooden Crate is the most common Crate found via fishing, with the Iron Crate being second-most common.
Dunerider Boots can be found in the Underground Desert, in desert houses. This biome can be dangerous to new players, so you'll probably be best off avoiding this one. You can also catch them in Oasis Crates and Mirage Crates

Step 2: Lightning Boots

Crafting the Lightning Boots
These two accessories can be combined with the Spectre Boots at a Tinkerer's Workshop, yielding the Lighting Boots.
Step 3: Frostspark Boots
Ice Skates can be encountered in Frozen Chests and also in Frozen Crates and Boreal Crates just like the Flurry Boots. Keep in mind that frozen crates only appear in pre-hardmode and boreal crates only in hardmode. If you need to fish for the crates then getting crate potions, a good fishing rod and good bait will help speed up the process.
