Material Leather

Boots of sneakiness are one of the basic type of boots in ADOM. They have base stats of [+0, +0] and increase Dexterity by 2 while worn, although variations from this are common.

They appear as greased boots, leather boots, soft boots, or worn boots when unidentified, with the most common appearance being leather boots.


Two points of dexterity usually translate to a slight increase in DV and missile to-hit and damage (plus 1 extra point of speed if Dexterity gets increased to 17 or higher). It's better than nothing.

Hurthlings, however, lose two points of dexterity for wearing any boots, so to them a standard pair of boots of sneakiness is a zero-sum game unless the bonus is higher than 2.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
