As if 7 league boots weren't enough, the boots he snatched from the ogre were magic in another way: they shrank to fit the person wearing them.

The seven-league boots were very large and long ; but as they were fairy-boots, they had the quality of adapting themselves to the legs of the person who wore them, large or small: and, accordingly, they fitted him at. Seven-League Boots are a magical pair of boots that allow the wearer to travel at remarkable speeds while taking seemingly normal steps. They contain a djinni with the capability to access and move through a theoretical eighth plane. They were first found in medieval Europe. Verroq possessed a pair of seven-league boots, which were later used by Nathaniel following Verroq's death.
