Arguably too many optional or straight up useless modifiers, while the actually useful modifiers can probably be found elsewhere and in bigger quantities.
1) The phys resist is nice but optional.
2) Jitan cooldown reduction is useless.
3) Phys/magic damage is pretty much useless for Mind Flay builds.
Only redeeming qualities are +2sk, the pierce and the spell focus but you can probably get ornate or eerie crafts with better spell focus and with actual spell damage + lack of MO space compared to a craft. The +2sk doesn't compensate enough compared to a ornate craft with innate lightning damage, so it's somewhat easy to get something that is at least as good as Spirit Walkers. It's not that it's a bad item, just not desirable enough to go out of you way to acquire, considering they probably are pretty damn expensive, might even be the most expensive item for the boots slot. You could probably spend half of the tg on just shrines and you would have a competitive choice, compared to Spirit Walker.
