Hey guys, Slip here!
There’s a brand new event on Poptropica’s Home Island! It’s called Feats of Speed. You simply need to beat Speedy Sam in a race to get the prize! (Samwow5, I didn’t know you liked track and field! 😛)
Once you land on Home Island, go to the left and you can easily spot Speedy Sam running on the treadmill. (He’s more fit than Samwow5! Just kidding. 😉 )
Once you talk to him, he then dares you to beat him in the race to the PoptropiCon roof. The mini-game is similar to the race between you and the Cheetah Bandit in the first episode of PoptropiCon. If you need help, check out this video!
That was quick!
After you beat Speedy Sam, he will ask you to beat the world record. The default world record is 14 seconds, and the only way to receive the sneakers is to beat it! When you’re done, Speedy Sam will grant you your very own running sneakers — it’s the first time we get shoes to keep!
The sneakers work like Cheetah Bandit’s bottle cap amulet. When you move, it leaves a magic trail behind you. Cool, right?
Speedy Sam also tells us that this won’t be the last sneaker you’ll have! There will be another prize next week, so better train yourselves for the next challenge! What do you think it is?
What’s your world record? Make sure to like this post and share your world records in the comments!

I got the shoes.My record is 12.33 seconds.Tell me if you beat my record in the comments
12.23 barely beat ya I can not find the sneaks
my new one is 12.16 seconds
Of course, I can’t even log into Pop for a few more hours cause I have a fever and I haven’t had the strength to out of bed for like 3 hours and I can’t even go walk over and grab my computer…I barely could get up to check the PHB on my iPad.
You still got the first though! XD Hope you get better.
I don’t have them I did the hard game ?!
Keep clicking him and doing it till you get the shoes, I hope that works. I had that problem too
Wow this is cool. We finally have shoes!!! Hurrah!!!
*Throws random cookies for everyone*
Yay cookies! *noms* WANT MORE oAo
*Throws more cookies for Silly Pelican, but then the cookie monster comes and eats them all*
WHY COOKIE MONSTER WHY?!?!?!?!
I shall get some good revenge, Cookie MONSTA.
I can’t. The cookies are gone :c
No! too late for cookies!
This is the worst thing ever!
can i have more cookies?
SHOES FOR ALL
YAAAAAAAS THE SHOES ARE HERE
I’m gonna go beat Speedy Sam maybe tomorrow… because tomorrow I have two quizzes in school and today I have to study :c
Yay. Studing. 😛
That would only ever be said sarcastic, don’t worry.
Is this item temporary?
lol, I had to.
It’s SUI only D:
I know, I noticed that. >.>
So much Ariel lol :D. I am so excited to check this game out!!!
13.92 seconds. Man, I gotta hit the gym…
I think it’ll work better when i use an actually good computer though.
10.76 I ca not find shoes in inventory
Wow that’s FAST 😉
I can’t believe that the hackers and whatnot were right about this!! I’m so happy that we can now have shoes!!!!
Rad update (for once)! Despite the recycled mini-game, at least Poptropica made it so that it offered something new and interesting. 🙂
I know it may seem impossible, but my high score is .63 seconds. Ha ha! It surprised me that it’s actually possible.
Yeah I got mine to be 00:00:66 seconds with a glitch, it is possible.
I’m guessing next week’s prize would be another pair of sneakers with a different color, just like in Spencer’s post.
And then the next week will be another color. And then they’ll just give up on the event part way for a great while like with the Monkey Madness event .
Yeah! I’m rockin’ ’em shoes! They look so funky :3
These shoes look pretty cool but why don’t they work on non SUI’s? Anyway something weird just happened, when I logged back in my item card was gone! I couldn’t race again to get them back either. So I logged back in again to do a comparison with the cap amulet, to find my shoes were gone from my feet! I logged back in AGAIN and saw that speedy Sam was gone too!!! Poptropica, whats going on?!? 😦
This is weird, they came back again. Why did that happen?
P.S: neither the running shoes (should be called lightning shoes) or cap amulet make you go any faster, but they still look cool.
I sort of wish they would make shoes that are just normal and work on non SUIs too and don’t make you do something special.
There was a glitch.
Hey all – We have squashed a bug that temporarily disabled the Feats of Speed mini-game. For those who have beaten the race, please return to the Home Island so that you can keep your sneakers forever. We apologize for the inconvenience. But hey, the race is fun, right? Thanks to everyone for participating!
Thanks 4 the info!
Slip, while I was looking through my Pop friends’ profiles, I noticed you became a member.
have fun with ur new membership :c
Woah 46 comments already? Nice!
The problem is that you can’t wear it on non SUIs or any other SUIs besides home island! 😦
I personally adore these shoes and would be willing to wear them anywhere, even without it’s power UvU
They work for me on Realms…
When will they be on non SUIs, because I saw a blank item card in my inventory.
P.S: the Twisted Thicket amulet (the goblin) is the only thing that makes you go faster
Love the shoes! I died my bangs purple to match! XD
whoa! these shoes are cool. i run track and my favorite running event is the 100. anyone run track?
(I don’t because i am a weakling!)
