Boots worthwhile?

Ok so since the enchantments for boots have been removed, they are now much less stat efficient and in many ways just take up an item slot, giving Cassiopeia and other such champs a huge advantage as her passive gives her free boots speed essentially without costing a valuable item slot, while those like hecarim are' left in the dust' as they can no longer get that extra bit of speed or utility. Are boots as essential as they once were, or will we start seeing more and more builds like those redmercy recently suggested as his builds which do not include them at all? Thoughts?
