Kimmy itemization guide
Kimmy, is a really mobile champion and as such is one that requires items that can provide a mix of CDR, movement speed and ability power in general. Given below is a list of items you can build along with the reasoning and situation for each item.
Boots are of course a basic necessity in any situation and in this case, the three boots that can be built are Arcane boots, Rapid boots and magic shoes. Purchasing each is primarily dependent on the situation.
Arcane boots if you’re pushed on the defensive, magic shoes to push your lead with the additional CDR and rapid shoes for ease in kiting.

An item that synergises very well with Kimmy’s skillset. Not only does it boost base ad but it also provides an extra 10% damage on disabled opponents. This includes effects from Kimmy’s slow. The additional movement speed ( Attack speed conversion is just an added bonus.
For a more safer item blood wings is a really good pick. It increases your HP as well as ap providing you additional sustain in teamfights. This item is particularly useful against brawlers and high priority assassins. The additional HP ensures you cannot be burst down easily, forcing assassins to target other squishy champions.
Another sustain item, unlike Blood wings however, this item provides spell vamp and also allows for takedown HP.
If you build the above two items, especially in higher ranks. It’s unlikely that the enemy team will not build any Magic resistance. Devils tears prepares you for the chances that they build MR.

The attack damage and the 10%CDR is really effective and works very well on this champion. Ad to this the fact that your auto attacks increase movement speed, the item is perfect on a mobile champion like this one.
Like hunters strike, this item also has a passive on consecutive auto attacks. Unlike Hunters strike, this causes a 150% damage increase on every third strike on an enemy.
