These modified boots of speed were originally intended to boost the wearer's speed rating to even greater rates: They make the wearer as fast as if a Haste spell had been cast upon someone wearing normal boots of speed. Unfortunately, the wearer cannot attack, and the strain of rushing around so fast quickly tires even the most stalwart of heroes. Their nickname is "Heel of the Coward," for that summarizes their most obvious use: running away.
