Frost Walker is an enchantment to boots that creates frosted ice blocks when walking over water, and causes the wearer to be immune to damage from certain blocks such as campfires and magma blocks when stepped on.
If moving on ground (not falling, jumping, or flying), any still water blocks with air above within a circle radius[Java Edition only] or square radius [Bedrock Edition only] of 2 + level around the block being moved to transforms into frosted ice. This works only if the player is on the ground.[Java Edition only] The water blocks must also be on the same level as the block being moved to in order to become ice.
Continuous motion is required for ice to remain when light levels would otherwise cause it to melt. When a player stops walking on the ice created by the enchantment, the ice gradually melts from around and under the player (at which point the player falls into the water). In addition, the ice created from Frost Walker lasts longer during the night because there is no sunlight to melt it.
If boots enchanted with Frost Walker are put on an armor stand that is pushed by a piston/slime or honey block onto water, Frost Walker works as normal on the armor stand.
Also, enchanted boots with Frost Walker can be applied on foxes when held.[BE only]
