Rune boots are a pair of boots made out of Rune. They require a Defence level of 40 to equip and are solely dropped by Nechryaels, which require at least level 80 Slayer to kill. Players without the required Defence level can choose to wear Climbing boots instead, which have the same strength bonus but lower defence bonuses.
As with all metal boots, this piece of armour cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
Rune boots are also a requirement for one hard and one elite clue scroll.
