Totally depends on the champ, specific game, who you're up against and your personal play style. I have yet to play a character where I get them first, but with most characters they're my 1st or 2nd item after I go shop for the first time.

Usually I try to time it so I have enough gold to buy my first real item and boots all at once.

For example, when going from boots 1 to boots 2, you originally gain 50 speed for 350 gold.
When you upgrade to zerker boots/tabei/sorc boots/merc treads/ you only gain an additional 20 movement speed, and their gold cost is MUCH greater.
Good point.

Yeah, 'zerker boots are the worst of the bunch.

Personally i build my start item first (sheen for blitz for example) then get level 1 boots and upgrade later as needed. I like to see how the game is progressing before i decide which boots to get.
