The Hellfire Treads are a pre-Hardmode accessory that give the wearer the ability to walk on all liquids and have immunity to lava damage for 7 seconds upon contact. It also reduces lava's base damage from 80 to 35.

The Hellfire Treads are functionally identical to the Lava Waders, except for the purely cosmetic trail of flames. Although the Hellfire Treads are a combination of two items, only one has actual effects. If equipped in a vanity slot, the trail of flames is still visible.

  • The Lava Charm, Lava Waders, Molten Charm, Terraspark Boots, and Demonic Hellcart stack with the Hellfire Treads to increase lava immunity by 7 seconds each, to a maximum total of 42 seconds.
  • It is suggested to keep the Flame Waker Boots and Lava Waders as separate items, as Hellfire Treads cannot be used to craft Terraspark Boots, which are statistically more useful. One can wear Flame Waker Boots as a vanity accessory for the visual effect.
