Expendable Lad's boots
Plural: pairs of Expendable Lads' boots
Expendable Lad was a famous sidekick back in the Silver Age of Twilight. Of course, his name wasn't really Expendable Lad it was Buffy or Binkley or Sparrow or something. Nobody ever really remembered his name; all they remembered was his terrible, terrible luck. Be it being shot with a freezing ray, being reverse aged to a toddler, being turned into a newt, being launched to the moon, or any number of horrible, weird, and outright absurd things that seemed to happen to him on a nearly monthly basis. Many people think his costume didn't help, either. Regardless of what abilities they conferred, the Concentric Red Rings of Power were universally regarded as a bad idea.

These are his boots. In addition to his outfit being blamed for his tendency to have horrible things happen to him, Expendable Lad had a horrible habit of jumping into the middle of things, even when he was terribly outclassed. While you need no encouragement to engage in such foolishness, the aura around these boots might inspire someone else to step up and take charge.
