The Spirited Breath Shoes can be found off any Mau inside Mist Mane Village.
A 'Worn Wooden Box' has a 100% drop chance and spawns on a couple of fixed locations!
One I know for sure is when you move down into the village, just before the first bridge there are 2 huts on the left side of the road.
It spawns next to the first hut, sometimes can be solo'd if the mob spawns a bit away from it!
If you're not using the kisk method; Tell your group to NOT do this quest untill you're done and going home since otherwise you'll be spread with the ppl who did do it back at the start and the others who didn't still at the top and that might cause a lot of trouble trying to get 2gether again!
Also when you're going for specific quests and not just to grind for exp/hairs going in from the north way is WAY faster since you can skip almost everything there pretty safely so even with randoms who jump/walk around like crazed ppl you can do that :P
Glide from mushroom
You guys glide from the mushroom to the foot of the other mushroom. However there is a boss spawn and a summoner spawn at the spot where you land!
You can also go for the tree which stands on the left side of the bridge, easy glide and no mobs there :)
Nice guide mate! Think a lot of ppl will find some help with cruising this area for their first time :)
