Why these boots were ever made has long been the subject to speculation among the sages of Candlekeep. Some suggest that a certain noblewoman was gifted them by an ethereal lover so that she could join him for a tryst. Other simply point out that the boots are useful for any mage to become intangible to attacks while devastating an opponent with offensive magic.
