They were first seen in the 1991 Sega Mega Drive release of Sonic the Hedgehog and have appeared in some form in most Sonic games made since.

Speed Shoes are usually accompanied by either by an increased tempo of the in-game music, or in more recent times, a dedicated jingle. The latter method is generally seen on platforms where speeding up the music cannot be achieved for technical reasons (for example, Sonic the Hedgehog CD where audio is streamed from a CD-ROM at a set rate).
