I'd give 'em to mord. increase his usefulness. As you said he lacks some resistance, so getting a little more leeway in his range would allow him to better position himself to not get hit by magic. Ike will pretty much destroy anything that gets in his path, so giving him boots will just give him comparable range to mord and exacerbate the problems with mord not being useful. Plus, if Mord hasn't yet maxed his levels, this might better enable you to get him the easier kills and level him up a bit more, further increasing his usefulness.
