    Aside from the icon it doesn't make much sense that these are boots. All other ingame boots give a plus on movement speed and normally exclude each other because the +ms is not additive. So everybody normally ends up with one pair of boots which is quite realistic (of course you don't actually equip these items and you have multiple necklaces/weapons/whatever in your inventory but for boots it has always been different). "Boots" of Elvenskin are the only exception - even the similar +str and +int items are a belt and robe.

    So they should probably be name the item shin guards/shoulderpads/arm protectors of elvenskin, which would also fit to the current icon which is kinda unidentifiable.

    they shouldn't be called boots anyway IMO. New player may confuse them with speed boots (or upgrades)

    I think it's the first step they're making to renaming them into Anklets of Elvenskin or something...

    Hmm... now that you think of it... Elven skin? I don't think that Invoker and the others would be happy to wear skins of people of their kind

    This has been discussed somewhere else already but hell yeah, either a) change the icon or b) change the name.
    Or else it will confuse the hell out of users.
    Furthermore, it does not fit compared to other boot icons here: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=33702
