Scoundrel’s Boots of Maneuver

I am presenting a new magical item below in Pathfinder RPG format, but I am sure the more mechanics savvy readers could adapt it to the system of their choice.  The wonderous item allows characters to make additional 5′ foot steps (or shifts, in 4th edition parlance) that becomes effective for maneuvering into a more effective combat position (think flank & charge).

Slot feet; Price 7,000; Weight 1 lb.

DESCRIPTION

When taking a 5′ step, the wearer of these multi-buckle leather boots, as a free action, may elect to move an additional 5′.  These boots may be  used to increase the distance of a 5′ step 3/day but may not be activated more than once per round.

  1. I like the concept of this item. But for 7,000 gp I wonder if perhaps the additional 5ft step (or shift in 4e lingo) could be tied to the character’s speed or Dexterity.

    Example:
    Activating these boots lets you shift half your movement/Dexterity (minimum 1sq) as a free action.
