Boots of striding and springing were a pair of magical boots that allowed the wearer to potentially become faster, and jump further.
The wearer of such boots had their movement speed increased to 5 ft (1.5 m) per second, unless it was higher, in which case it did not change their speed.
Those who wore these boots would not feel burdened by carrying a large amount of weight, including heavy armor. As well as this, the wearer could jump triple their standard distance.
Tharden Rockseeker, a dwarf explorer, wore such boots whilst camped in the Wave Echo Cave. He, however, was killed by Nezznar, and his brother was taken hostage.
