The Valkyrie 1000 is a running shoe designed to hyper accelerate the kinetic movements of living organisms.
The Valkyrie 1000 greatly increased the speed of the wearer. The sole human pair eventually allowed the subject to move at hyperspeed, easily faster than the human eye could follow. However, testing on the shoes was not yet complete, and so prolonged use resulted in the subject becoming "stuck" in hyperspeed, unable to return to normal speed when desired, or to remove the shoes.
Kim was given the only human pair of Valkyrie 1000s in order to stop the Bebe robots, who could also move at hyperspeed. However, Kim's using the shoes on other activities as well increased her speed to the point where it was extremely difficult for her to return to normal speed at will. The same was true of Rufus, who also borrowed a pair, and while he did not use them as much as Kim, presumably wore his even longer than she did.
- The Human version of the shoes revealed that Kim's a size 7.
