The Treads have the following magical characteristics:
- The boots magically adjust to fit the wearer and serve as warm and tough footwear in any weather or terrain.
- The wearer gains a Good bonus to endurance when traveling on foot.
- Attempts to follow the wearer via tracking or divination suffer a Good penalty.
- Thrice per day the wearer can walk across any surface as if it were a broad and stable path across solid ground. This power operates irregardless of the surface's orientation or strength. The wearer could, for example, walk across a pool of water, cross a great chasm on a thread, run up the side of a building, or run across the sky by stepping from snowflake to snowflake during a winter storm. Each invocation of this power lasts up to thirty minutes.
