The Wind Shoes is an item you can craft early in Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy by unlocking it from the Skill Tree, but gathering the materials for it at that stage might be a challenge. This guide will teach you everything you need to know to craft the Wind Shoes in the game.
How To Craft the Wind Shoes in Atelier Ryza 2
Unlock The Wind Shoes Recipe
If you haven’t already, spend SP to unlock the Wind Shoes recipe from the Skill Tree. Press X on the Nintendo Switch to open the menu and select ‘Skill Tree’. Scroll to the right and you’ll eventually come across the Wind Shoes recipe.
Upgrade Thread Development Level
Find Romy in the Erster Central District of the Ashra-am Baird region and choose the ‘Development’ option. Press X and choose the Filter option. Under the Category area, choose Threads and save the setting. Sell her items under this category to increase your Thread level. You should eventually offer a material that unlocks the Sorcery Rose at Dennis’s Workshop (got it at LV 5 for this guide).
Buy Required Material
Fast travel to Dennis’s Workshop and find Dennis. Press the Buy option and purchase the new Sorcery Rose material for 350 Cole; you’ll only be able to purchase 2 max per day (you can go back to your house and rest if you want it to instantly restock).
Craft the Spirit Bottle
The Spirit Bottle is the most important ingredient you need to craft the Wind Shoes. Before you can get the Spirit Bottle, you’ll need to craft the Alchemy Paint. To get the Alchemy Paint recipe, you need the Mixing Oil recipe. The Mixing Oil recipe can be unlocked from the top-right corner of the Skill Tree once you have enough SP. You’ll also need the Morphing ability unlocked from the Skill Tree to morph these recipes into the final Spirit Bottle recipe.

The toughest ingredients you’ll need to find are the Lapis Papillion and the Dark Crystal Fragment.
The Lapis Papillion can be found at the Southern Outskirts, Maiden’s Catacombs, and the Sunken City of the Stars. You may need an upgraded Bug Net and/or a high gathering level before you’re able to catch it.
The Dark Crystal Fragment can be found at the Capital Outskirts, Abandoned Mine Railway, Southern Outskirts, Ancient Mana Workshop, and Maiden’s Catacombs. You’ll need an upgraded staff gathering level to get this material from crystals scattered throughout these areas.
Craft Wind Shoes
Travel back to your Atelier and open the Synthesis menu. Find ‘Wind Shoes’ and craft it. At this point in the game, you should have sufficient ingredients to make it. The Lapis Papillion and the Dark Crystal Fragment will be the toughest to obtain.
The Wind Shoes increase your movement speed in the game. It isn’t a required item to craft.
