The Boots of Striding have the same durability as leather boots but come with added bonuses:
- Jump height is increased to three blocks.
- You are able to move much faster.
- Falling damage is reduced by half.
- You can walk over a one block tall obstacle.
The Boots of Striding can be enchanted like normal boots.
Holding the Sneak button while wearing them reduces jump distance to normal levels.
Be aware that the hunger bar depletes faster while wearing them because the wearer is, effectively, always sprinting.
You must be running and with enough vertical space to jump. If you are crouching, or don't have enough free space to make the full jump, you only jump the normal distance.
