A pair of Hyper Boots (きわめのブーツ, Extreme Boots or Mastery Boots?) is a Boot-class piece of armor found in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. Visually, the Hyper Boots are represented by a green boot.

In Golden Sun and The Lost Age

In both games, the Hyper Boots are a Slot Machine prize, which can be acquired in Tolbi (in Golden Sun) and Contigo (in The Lost Age) with Game Tickets and lining up five Boot icons in a row, and winning as a prize either the Hyper Boots or the Fur Boots and Quick Boots. As Boots, it can be worn by all Adepts.

In a perfect game, this can be considered among the best of the Boots. Equipping it on an Adept that focuses on physical assault with Unleash-based weapons is a must for most, for the increased chance of Unleashing will increase the user's overall power in battle by a rather high amount. These are ideal boots to wear in both games in the series; In Golden Sun, Isaac can become a very powerful warrior if he is given the Gaia Blade (the first game's "ultimate weapon", whose Titan Blade effect has an unleash rate of 35%), the Warrior's Helm to increase that unleash rate by 10% (and Venus power by 10 as well), and Hyper Boots to increase it by a further 12%, his physical attack will have a 57% chance of Unleashing the spectacular and strong Titan Blade effect, which is very beneficial. The Unleash rate can be further increased by 6% by equipping the Spiked Armor — the only body armor in the first game to possess a modifier for Unleash — to achieve the highest possible Unleash percentage of 63%.

In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, a similar but much stronger equipment recipe can be used to make either Isaac or Felix a supreme powerhouse warrior. The Sol Blade is the second game's ultimate weapon, and its Unleash's consistent potential for devastating damage is nearly unmatched. It also has an unleash rate of 35%, so to increase that rating, the Adept who wields the Sol Blade is outfitted with the Valkyrie Mail to increase that unleash rate by 20%, a pair of Riot Gloves to increase it by another 20% (as well as increase physical attack damage by a bit), a Mythril Helm to increase it by 12% more, and Hyper Boots to increase it by a further 12%. The Adept ends up with a 99% chance of attacking with Sol Blade's Megiddo effect each time he attacks; his ability to damage single opponents each turn is superior even to high-powered summon spells.

It is evident that Hyper Boots are an immense benefit to Adepts whose battling habits center around physically assaulting the opponent, but on an Adept that focuses on casting Psynergy, the boots are largely wasted. Better boots for those Adepts, then, would either be Dragon Boots, which provide better defense as well as resistances, or Quick Boots, which increase agility. (It should be noted that you can get one pair of Golden Boots in the game, which is a powered up version of the Quick Boots, so that should be equipped in its place on one Adept.)
