Boots of lightfootedness are a quest item which the player must find and obtain downstairs of the "Room of Fear" during the Temple of Ikov quest. These boots must be equipped by the player in order to cross a bridge and reach a lever room on the other side. If the player does not wear them during their crossing they will fall off the bridge and into an area filled with Scorpions- in addition to being hit for up to 16 damage. The Boots are not required to cross the bridge when returning from the lever room. They have no other notable uses and afterwards remain cosmetic boots.
The boots visual appearance is nearly identical to regular leather boots, other than a purple pixel which appears when the camera is rotated at certain angles.
