Other than that, I personally think it's a good idea...
The price of this item is huge though... And there's nothing really unique about it...
Maybe... Boots of Speed, Rejuvenation Bead, 400 Gold...
+15 Health Regen per 5 seconds (Same as Regrowth Pendant)
UNIQUE PASSIVE: Enhanced Movement 2 (does not stack with other Boots)
And one of:
UNIQUE PASSIVE: Minions/Monsters deal 5 less damage?
UNIQUE PASSIVE: 2 Gold gained per 10 seconds?
UNIQUE ACTIVE: Places an invisible Sight Ward that reveals the surrounding area for 3 minutes (3 minute cooldown) ?
UNIQUE PASSIVE: Reduces spell cost by 20%?
UNIQUE PASSIVE: Attacks grant vision of target for 2 seconds?
Anyway, I think your suggestion is Over-Priced and has too much sustain... IMO, scale back the cost, scale back the sustain and add something UNIQUE...
gp10 items are balanced by the need to sell them later or upgrade them to an item without gp10.
GP10 boots cannot exist.
Ward actives are frowned upon. AD junglers only have Wriggle's Lantern because they are too item-dependent to pick up an early gp10 in the jungle to help pay for wards.
Reducing Spell cost would be too difficult to balance.
Minion damage reduction would be ok, but 5 is too much.
Vision might also be ok, but sustain boots would not need an active like the defensive boots.
Either way, sustain boots would not be implemented. If Riot was willing to allow those, we would have them already.
