Why do so few supports take boots of mobility

They tend to stick with the rest of the team most of the time anyway, so being faster than all those slowpokes really isn't that important. Maybe it can help when dropping down wards, but you shouldn't be going too far away from your team when you do that anyway.

Not once did we break the rules, we only broke the barriers in their minds.

I always build Mobility on my supports. The added movement speed is more important to me than anything the other boots give.

I buy them on most CC-based junglers. Really help out initiators like Maokai and Naut.

Depends on who you are and the situation. If you are like an aggressive support such as Taric, Alistair or Leona then it can work but if the enemy team has a LOT of hard CC then you are better off getting Mercs.

I personally dont like to get mobility boots on supports who are naturally fast like Janna, Lulu or Sona. With these, Ionian or Merc treads work better.

Supports need to use their skills as much as possible so Ionian boots are the best way to go.
