I really don't understand why. I'd rather have Travel or Mercury's in almost every situation.

Boots of mobility allow you to get to places faster, even if they don't help in combat. Sure, they might not help in running away much, but flashing somewhere they cant see you might give you enough time to have the ability activated.

Besides, you should be attacking enemies in combat, not moving around too much, right?

Its personal opinion, I suppose.

Also, whats travel?

For swiftness, some people just benefit more from moving faster and have no benefit from other boots. I.E. gangplank who doesn't need Mercury's or Zerkers.

I agree with Swiftness. I much prefer Mobility and it saddens me when these people with the + 3, not + 2, speed can escape from me and just out range my abilities if I get in combat or anything. I see the Swiftness boots used pretty often, always when someone is ou tpacing me just enough to live.

I once ran down a highlanding Yi with Swiftness and Malice and Spite.

It made my day.

Boots of mobility is best used on Eve, Twitch, Kat and Kass (although I go sorc boots, I could see the appeal of mobility)

Mobility is used on ganker heros for taking advantage of ganking opportunities.

Swiftness is used when:

zerkers isn't that important for you +
being fast is better than 20 spell penetration for you +
the enemy team doesn't make you want treads +

Examples (IMO) are blitzcrank, veigar, anivia. Being fast is very important for landing good stuns\walls\grabs on these heros.

makes me feel better about going boots of swiftness over sorc with veigar.

because yes veigar is great at damage.

but 1 good placed aoe stun in a team fight and its becames a 1 sided battle

I thought he already moves like a speed-***** with his double buff.
