Kaleidocera krakows are footwear that are part of a broader set of kaleidocera equipment. They are notable for having the highest resistances of any footwear available in Caves of Qud.

Kaleidocera Equipment

Kaleidocera equipment, including the kaleidocera cape, kaleidocera muffs, and kaleidocera krakows, have some of the highest all-around resistance values of any equipment in the game. Each piece of equipment also grants a bonus to Ego and a small chance to refract light-based attacks.

Kaleidocera equipment can be obtained by butchering the corpse of a kaleidoslug. However, the kaleidoslug has only a 6% chance of dropping a corpse when it is killed. Once a corpse is obtained, butchering the corpse guarantees one piece of kaleidocera equipment, but the specific piece of equipment obtained is random - each has a 1-in-3 chance of being butchered from the corpse.

Advantages and Disadvantages

This section is opinion-based. Your mileage may vary.

Despite having the highest resistances of any footwear in the game, along with several other bonuses, the AV and DV values of the kaleidocera krakows (♦1 ○1) may be considered too low for some players when compared to alternative high-tier footwear, like the zetachrome pumps.
