Yes, it can be a good item if you get 20000 when u start, but the problem is that you don't! By the time u get one, it's already late game, and that's when people already get like 3000+ hp, it's useless. also the stats and cost is too high.
Someone name a hero that is good with this boot. You might say fragile melee agility heroes should get it, but I say treads with strength would be a lot better.

I don't really see a real purpose of this item. You might say that it can help u escape, but I think buying that for 100 gold is just ridiculous.
Eaglehorn (All agility items in general):
I have no idea why would people want to buy agility items, cuz they are seriously expensive and they suck! I have evidence:
Eaglehorn grants you +25% Attack Speed, 3 1/7 armor, and if u r an agility hero, 25 damage.
Let's say if you want to buff ur hero so much, so u bought 4 eaglehorns, which costs 13200 gold.
To get the 100% attack speed, you can get 2 hyperstones (4400 gold). To get the 13 armor, you can get a plate mail and a ring of protection (1575 gold). To get 100 damage, 2 demon edges and a blades of attack would be enough. (5350 gold)
Added together is 11325 gold, not counting the extra 10% attack speed i counted in the hyperstone, and the missing armor on the ring of protection.
That's almost 2000 gold apart!
And if you get 4 eaglehorns for a strength/intelligence hero, then u r totally stupid. Cuz u don't get the bonus damage. 11325- 5350= 5975
So getting 4 eaglehorns for an agility hero is like throwing away 2000 gold, and for a strength/intelligence hero, it's like throwing away 7225 gold!
R U with me???
