Boots cost three-fiddy, that's not very much.

You need boots so that you can get to the scene faster, and so that you can chase enemies when needed. It's a make-or-break component of every single champion. If you don't have boots, you simply cannot catch up with everybody or everything that's going on. You're slower to running towards your turrets, which means you'll more than likely lose them. You'll have an extremely hard time catching up to champions that HAVE boots, which in turn means they'll die less, stay on the map more time, push more turrets faster, etc.

So boots are a staple to every. single. Champion! [period]

You'll always need boots to chase or intercept. Saved many a team mate because i was able to make it to the fights with my boots.

Not only is not getting boots a generally poor idea but sorc boots are so good on annie. She has really high base spell damage and not the best ap ratios.

Boots is the single handedly most important item for Annie. You can quote me on this.

1. Laning is a phase essential to the rest of the game, so it's good to get in lane more quickly
2. Sorc boots is one of the only items that give mPen
3. Lets you get to allies faster
4. Lets you chase more efficiently as well as get into position for ganks easier
5. if you get movement summoner spells instead, you don't have space for more offensive choices
6. Lets you position for incinerate better
7. it's friggin cheap.

Boots give you more than +1. Sorc shoes give you +2 and are definitely worth it. It would be fine to not get boots on annie if your opponents didnt either - you dont need to run faster than them. You do however need to be able to run AS fast as them.

I'm slowly gravitating towards getting Merc Treads in every game, no matter the situation.
