Add a 4% movement speed bonus on Boots of Swiftness, which increases by another 16-17 MS right off the bat.
While leaving it only 24-25 MS difference with Boots of Mobility, its price is also raised by 300 gold more.
Additionally, the out of combat speed for Boots of Mobility is changed from 70 to 80 MS.

Boots of Swiftness - 90+ & 4% MS (1300 gold)

  • Nautilus - 300 + 90 + 4% = 406~ MS (106+)
  • Pantheon - 330 + 90 + 4% = 437~ MS (107+)

Boots of Mobility - 130+ MS (1000 gold)
  • Nautilus - 300 + 130 = 430 MS (25+ MS)
  • Pantheon - 330 + 130 = 460 MS (24+ MS)

there definitely needs to be some major differences of the two, for its hard to see swiftness do anything at all, a slight buff to swiftnesslike .5 MS added

You are Any champion whit standart 315 speed. Your lane enemy has the same range than you, and the same Ms. He buys Ionian boots, you buy swiftness. You win all trades and can poke far better because you are faster than him. He can't catch you and you can catch him.
They are not useless, not the best boots either.

From 90 MS to 90.5 MS. What difference does that make?

Rushing Boots of Swiftness is never a good idea, so by the time you actually buy Boots 3 (BoS), you all have fast enough attack speed that the movement speed you gain from Boots 3 will not be worth it anymore.

Boots of Swiftness should probably be left with the same effect, just 100g cheaper. (900)

Boots of Mobility should increment every second until Move 5 is achieved, instead of waiting 5 full seconds for it to kick in.

not point 5m but the boots give 3 just buff to 3.5

also rushing fast boots is a strategy of gankcentric junglers.
