Notes

  • The flat movement speed bonus of Boots of Speed and everything that it builds into is unique and thus does not stack with other boots.
  • Ninja Tabi's damage reduction stacks multiplicatively with armor and other damage reduction effects.
  • Ninja Tabi increases your effective HP against basic attacks by around 13%

Trivia

  • Despite its appearance, tabi are a type of Japanese footwear that resemble white socks. Also despite how it is commonly pronounced by players, the item's name would supposedly be more accurately pronounced as "neen-jah tah-bee".
  • Ninja Tabi's appearance is a palette swap of its armor-counterpart,  Mercury's Treads.
  • CassiopeiaSquare.png Cassiopeia is the only champion that can't buy boots.

Patch History

v8.7

Armor decreased. Basic attack damage reduction increased.

Ninja Tabi have become a ubiquitous purchase recently. It's fine when tanks pick up Ninja Tabi—after all, their core job is to tank damage—but when marksmen are buying them, it's probably a bit much. We want Ninja Tabi to remain a core purchase for tanks who need to be able to take punishment from marksmen and other basic-attackers, but less for marksmen who just want some armor to survive against assassins.

ARMOR : [30] 20
BASIC ATTACK DAMAGE REDUCTION : [10%] 12%


v7.11
Basic attack damage reduction decreased.

Ninja Tabi should be the go-to item into a ton of physical damage, and its additional tankiness against basic attacks gives it baseline effectiveness against at least the marksman in most games. At the moment, it’s the right choice pretty much whenever the enemy team has any physical damage on top of their marksman, so we’re dialing back that baseline value.

BASIC ATTACK DAMAGE REDUCTION : [12%] 10%


v6.10
Passive reduction up.

Right now there’s only one thing Ninja Tabi have in common with actual Ninja: you can’t see them anywhere. While Mercury Treads are purchased situationally against heavy magic damage, Ninja Tabi aren’t hitting the mark against physical damage right now, so we’re giving them a bump.

BASIC ATTACK REDUCTION : [10%] 12%
