I thought they would prevent drowning.

Eels proved me wrong.

Formal identification

...Can be done by wearing them, standing on water, and removing your boots. This will, of course, wet your inventory and may cause drowning as usual, making it useless in practical terms. Being underwater (e.g. polymorphing or the amulet of magical breathing) and putting on boots generates the message "You slowly rise above the surface." but does not ID the boots. -- Qazmlpok (talk) 05:09, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
