Default Enhances and non-slot items

Hello!

We are confused by such items like "Kneepads of Allure", "Singing & Dancing Sword" and other "non-slot" items. Tell me please, can I put an Enhances on them?
For example, "Singing & Dancing Sword" is non-slot item, but it's a weapon (right?), so I can enhance it with weapon enhancer?

If your question is about cards identifying themselves as Weapon Enhancers, then those are covered by the FAQ answer:

Quote:
Q. Exactly what is a "weapon"?
A. In a more rigorous game, we would have labeled all the swords, axes, etc. as "weapons." Try to use common sense, even if this IS Munchkin. As a general rule, any item that uses Hands and is not already labeled as something else can be considered a weapon, as can items like the Singing and Dancing Sword that are obviously weapons.

OK, it is clear now, thank you.

Then what about other non-slot items like Kneepads of Allure, Spiky Knees, Pantyhose of Giant Strength and Stepladder - can I label them like a Boots using same logic? Or they are like not mentioned "attributes" and don't belong to any part of a body?

I am not sure what you are asking? If you are asking about "Footwear", then "Footwear" would be printed on the card, since that is a defined Slot.

Yes, about "Footwear".
I mean, FAQ says that Singing & Dancing Sword is a weapon because it looks like a weapon.
Kneepads of Allure, Spiky Knees, Pantyhose of Giant Strength and Stepladder looks like they are using legs (but not using slots and don't labeled as a Footwear), so, Footwear Enhancers could be put on them or not?

P.s. sorry for my strange formulation :)

No. "Footwear" is a specific slot defined in the Rules. If a card does not say "Footwear", then it is not "Footwear".

All of your examples are qualified as Items, so anything that affects an Item will affect them, but, since they are not items that take up a specific slot, (headgear, footgear, etc...) they are not affected by things that target specific slots.

This has all mostly been said in this thread, but I figured I'd collect it all in one place.
