The Black Boots are a legs armor in Dark Souls II. They are part of the Black Set.

In-Game Description

Boots worn by the great sorcerer Straid.
Straid was a sworn brother-in-arms of the ancient king of old Olaphis. Together, they slew the Ancient Dragon, and tasted of omniscience.
However, even the renowned wisdom of Olaphis was not enough to control the peculiar magic birthed by his arts.


The whole set is gifted by Straid of Olaphis after trading four or more boss souls with him. Straid can also be killed at any time, and the boots will be available from Merchant Hag Melentia for 4,800 souls.
