Iron Boots
+25 Movement speed
+200 Health
Immunity to the Airborne effect of enemy abilities.

Recipe
Boots of Speed (350g)
Ruby Crystal (475g)
+ 325g
= 1150g

Maybe not all airborne cc, but surely knockback/knockup. I think this item will be good to be available when you are playing a champion with channeling abilities and suffering from the hard cc of the enemy team.

Immunity to knockups would make it the most broken item in the game, especially since it's relatively cheap and gives a stat that is good on every champ (Health)

Edit: just realized you said knockbacks as well............you just made an item that makes Alistar completely useless

This would allow you to milk those.

I am firmly against changing how you can't milk those.

Basically what I had in mind was to make the champion more slower but tanky. Yeah comparing the price with the other boots, there's not difference that justify the great effect of it, but the price could just be increased and the knockback/knockup immunity could have a delay between everytime it blocks a airborne cc, just like banshee's veil but with less time (something like 10 seconds).

As stated before, this would completely ruin champion's like Ali, Blitz and Lee Sin. Perhaps a better passive would be to reduce the distance knocked back by say, 50%?

Displacements are BALANCED around there being no items to counter them, so no.

Take away the CC removal and I'd like it, I've always wanted some HP boots in the game. The CC removal is a bit tacky and too much.

Oooo! I really like this idea!

Obviously, it needs to be something like this:

Lodestone Boots
Boots of Speed (350g) + Ruby Crystal (475g) + 625g = 1450g
+45 Movement speed
+200 Health
UNIQUE Passive - Gain a spell shield that blocks the next incoming Knockup. This shield refreshes if you haven't taken damage from champions in 25 seconds. While on cooldown, you lose 20 Movement Speed.
UNIQUE Passive - Knockbacks only move you 50% of the normal distance.

I'd explain why this is broken, and go on about how you people STILL don't know how to find a Search bar in a forum, but right now my brain is broken and doesn't want to get out the real facts explaining why it's broken.

But yeah, Search bar. That and some people have already explained why it's bad already.

I'd rather see Mercurial Scimitar work against those types of CC than this.

This would be incredibly undercosted for its effect as boots, far too situational, and crazy overpowered in the situations it would work in.

I made a suggestion for MC to handle those CC types thats still near the top of the item forums, if you care enough to look.
