The Cyclone Boots are a relic acquired in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. They are a pair of magical boots that enable the wearer to move at tremendous speeds. They were originally a gift to Cornell, the first Lord of Shadow, but were taken from him upon defeat, and are now used by Gabriel Belmont. They can be used in combat, but most notably for allowing Gabriel to jump further by jumping after sprinting. After becoming the Prince of Darkness, Gabriel abandoned the use of the Cyclone Boots as he no longer needed them due to his vampiric speed. They were eventually excavated from Victory Plaza in Castlevania City during the modern era.
Cyclone Boots combat techniques
- Sprint Thrust: Finishes off Gabriel's sprinting with a blast attack, the closer to the target the more effective the move. Can send even the mightiest of foes to the ground.
- Flame Claws: Combining Shadow magic with the Dark Gauntlet and the Cyclone Boots, the player is able to unleash a ranged flaming claw attack.
- Shoulder Charge: Using Shadow magic, power up Gabriel's charge into an attack using shadow energy. Can also be used to smash weak doors and walls.

- According to a City Memorial, the boots were created by Rinaldo Gandolfi.
- It's possible the Cyclone Boots were used by Victor Belmont (albeit heavily modified) as it is stated that he searched the ruins of Dracula's castle to find Gabriel's old equipment.
- One of the boots' techniques, Flame Claws, is shared with the Chaos Claws.
