The ideology of ''Seven League Boots'' (as a literary component), is related to most European Countries, and can be traced back to perhaps as early as the 14th Century AD. Used as a ''magical component'' in stories, the ''hook'' is that such magical footwear is the ultimate prize given to those who achieve some form of greatness or overcome some impossible task. As a reward, the boots ''allow'' it's wearer to make ''great strides or leaps'' of several miles with one stride.
