SNEAKs and HEADSETs are two in-game assets that allow users to earn while they move! These assets can be used individually or simultaneously to boost earning. Can’t decide between getting a SNEAK or HEADSET? Here’s everything you need to know to help make your decision easier! 


SNEAKs are Step App’s in-app assets that have various categorisations which contribute to the overall monetary value and the earning potential of each SNEAK.

What we love about SNEAKs: 

  1. SNEAKs for all fitness levels.
    Since there are different types of SNEAKs with varying speed intervals, you have a lot of choice when it comes to selecting the SNEAK for you, whether you like casual walks or high-intensity runs. 
  2. Clash Duels.
    With a SNEAK that is Rank 2 or higher you have the opportunity to participate in Clash Duels for a chance to increase your earnings, even on days when you don’t feel like walking or running. Learn more about Clash Duels here.
  3. Flexibility.
    There are many ways to upgrade your SNEAK and its earning potential, whether you use gems, reroll your stats, or continue to level up your SNEAK, the possibilities are endless. 

SNEAKs come in different types and have different attributes and qualities.

Types of SNEAKS

There are four different types of SNEAKs: the Walker, the Hiker, the Racer, and the Coach. Just like purchasing sneakers in the real world, there are a lot of factors to consider and get excited about when purchasing SNEAKs on Step App. You want to purchase a SNEAK that fits your lifestyle and the type of movement that you typically do! 

SNEAK Attributes 

Each SNEAK has four unique attributes: Activity, Luck, Resistance and Balance. The attributes influence your KCAL earnings, and will increase when you level up your SNEAK (which yes, means even higher earnings). You can level up your SNEAK via your inventory tab where you can use your KCAL to pay the fee for leveling up.

SNEAK Quality 

There are five SNEAK qualities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary. The quality of the SNEAK influences the basic attributes of a SNEAK. Did you know, the higher the quality, the better the base attributes of your SNEAK?

HEADSETs can be worn individually or paired with a SNEAK for higher earning capabilities. 

What we love about HEADSETs: 

  1. Earn more KCAL.
    You will be able to earn even more KCAL if you already have a SNEAK by wearing both simultaneously when you move.
  2. Increased utility of KCAL.
    You can now use your KCAL to purchase HEADSETs which increases the utility and value of users’ existing tokens.
  3. Increased accessibility.
    With HEADSETS being a lower cost, this in-game asset makes Step App more accessible, allowing more users to start moving to earn with Step App.

HEADSET Attributes 

HEADSETs have 3 attributes: Activity, Luck, Resistance. This is different from a SNEAK which has Balance as an additional attribute.

HEADSET Quality 

There are currently 3 quality variations of HEADSETs: Common, Uncommon and Rare


Are you unsure whether to purchase a SNEAK or HEADSET?

Here’s how they compare to each other:

*Gems can be inserted into “Gem Slots”. Once Gems are inserted into these slots they will be activated. 

*Chests are in app items that you can stumble upon when moving.  Chests contain valuable rewards and the chance to receive one depends on the Luck attribute of your GEAR. Chests can contain KCAL, Level 2 Gems and/or boosters for Clash duels.

Stay tuned for more updates, insights, and exciting developments. We  have some more in-game assets coming soon, keep an eye out for them!
