Boots Worth Keeping in Diablo 2
What you're looking for on boots is mostly survivability and utility. A good pair of boots is pretty universal amongst all of the class/builds in the game for this reason. The best pair of boots will look something like 30% Faster Run/Walk, 10% Faster Hit Recovery and 40 to Fire, Lightning and Poison resist. Cold in place of Poison is fine too, although more stuff uses Poison in the game.
All Classes (Best Boots)
Req: 20 - 30% Faster Run/Walk
Highly Rec: 10% Faster Hit Recovery
Rec: Life, Mana, Dexterity or Strength, Life Replenish, Fire Resistance, Lightning Resistance (Other resists are decent but not as good)
