  • Sorcerer&#039;s Shoes item.png Sorcerer's Shoes is a very good item for ability power-based champions, as it allows you to ignore 15 points 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 is less effective for non-offensive mages such as supports or tanks, as their typically low magic damage abilities prevent the item from receiving its full value, compared to the higher damage results of a Carry. One of the two defensive boots would likely be a better pick, as the added survivability will be of more value to these roles.
  • Sorcerer's Shoes are less efficient against enemies with high magic resistance. However, they synergize well with other magic penetration items, percentage items such as Void Staff item.png Void Staff in particular.
  • It is possible to sell these boots at late-game once you have Void Staff item.png Void Staff or other magic penetration items such as Liandry&#039;s Torment item.png Liandry's Torment, as the extra magic penetration is arguably negligible.
