  • Sorcerer's Shoes item.png Sorcerer's Shoes is an extremely good item for magic-based champions, as it allows you to ignore 15 of your enemy's magic resistance. Combining these with magic penetration runes can be devastating for opponents with low magic resistance.
    • In contrast, Sorcerer's Shoes item.png Sorcerer's Shoes is less effective for non-offensive casters such as supports or tanks, as their typically low magic damage stats prevent the item from receiving its full value, compared to the higher damage results of a Carry.

  • It is possible to sell these boots at late-game once you have Void Staff or other magic penetration items such as Liandry's Torment item.png Liandry's Torment, as the extra magic penetration is arguably negligible.
    • It's usually recommended then to buy Ionian Boots of Lucidity item.png Ionian Boots of Lucidity as most users of Sorcerer's Shoes work well with cooldown reduction. However, depending from the champion you are using or the enemies you are facing, you may want to buy other types of boots, such as Mercury's Treads item.png Mercury's Treads (due to the tenacity).

For nearly a century, the greatest mage in Valoran resided in the scorched desert of the Zear realm until the first crusade of the Rune Wars devastated the entire region forcing millions to flee.
