The High Jump Boots (ハイジャンプブーツ Hai Janpu Būtsu ), also known as the Hi-Jump were an upgrade found in the 2-D Metroid games. As indicated by the name, the Boots allowed Samus Aran to jump much higher. In Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Zero Mission, the Spring Ball is granted along with the boots.
Official Nintendo Player's GuideEdit
"When you get these boots, Samus’ jumping power will increase one-and-a-half times. Even items which couldn’t be reached before because of their location can be obtained easily with these."

- The High Jump Boots are one of three items not present in Metroid: Other M, the other two being the Spazer Beam and X-Ray Scope. Despite this, the Space Jump actually allows her to jump slightly higher as if she were wearing the High Jump.
- The High Jump Boots have never made an official 3-D appearance.
- In Metroid II: Return of Samus, the sound of the High Jump Boots will ordinarily echo, but in certain enclosed areas will not.
- Their appearance sometimes resembles the Pegasus Boots from The Legend of Zelda series.
