They are not to be confused with Spring Shoes which have a similar appearance.
Spike Shoes will increase your effective stomp damage, allowing you to kill high-health enemies such as Cavemen in a single hit. They are also effective against certain enemies that are not usually harmed by jumping (such as Mammoths and Giant Frogs). For those familliar with the original Spelunky, it is important to note that Spike Shoes DO NOT allow you to safely jump on Mantraps anymore.
Spike shoes can be worn at the same time as spring shoes, allowing for both effects at once.
