The Vaulting Boots of Valtorr are a mystically-enhanced pair of boots used by Karl Mordo to move freely in the air. They increase the wearer's leaping ability and nullify the adverse effects of impacts from high landings and are also capable of allowing the wearer to briefly walk on air. When in use, the boots emit orange sparks from the footfalls.
