Ultimate Hunter is it Worth? + Boot Choice
Short Answer
Ultimate Hunter is only worth taking if you build Mobi boots.

Details
I'll provide proof for all the following claims in the following section. First, it's important to note that stacking Ultimate Hunter and Ionian boots is overkill. It is also overkill and inefficient to build solely focus on mobility. With these points in mind, there are only two build options that make the most use out of CDR and mobility without taking either to the extreme. The first option is to use Relentless Hunter with Ionian boots. The second option is to use Ultimate Hunter with Mobi boots.

Ultimate Hunter and Mobi's provide the best stats late game. You will only save ~2 seconds on your ult late game and all other abilities will be ~0.5 seconds slower. You will also have the most MS with Mobi's but it will also all be gone in a team fight. The two downsides to Ultimate Hunter, ability CDR and in combat MS debuff, are huge downsides for Pyke's playstyle. On the other hand, Relentless Hunter and Ionian boots solve both of these huge issues. The downside with this combination is basically just the MS loss because saving ~2 seconds on your ult is almost nothing. Relentless Hunter does provide a little bit of a buffer for the MS loss because it will double your out-of-combat MS which will still make you faster than most champions.

A quick summary of everything above is that Relentless Hunter and Ionian boots are technically more efficient to build, however, if you prefer Mobi boots then you should take Ultimate Hunter. Both options are very strong so just pick whichever fits your playstyle the best. Relentless Hunter and Ionian boots is good for when you want to take on a more carry playstyle because it will allow you to spike earlier. Ultimate Hunter and Mobi boots is good for when you want to take a more passive role where you work on setting up playings for your team to get them fed.

I personally take Ultimate Hunter and Mobi boots when I have a mid-late-game team and I can trust the people I'm playing with (not solo Q), so I can guarantee good roams where we always accomplish something. In any other situation, I take Relentless Hunter and Ionian boots to carry myself.

Proof
Secondary Runes
Overview
You can take pretty much anything you want for secondary runes on Pyke. As long as you aren't trolling and choosing runes that don't worth then any rune tree is fine to use for your secondary runes.

Precision
Precision is useful for surviving late-game team fights. Precision will leave you vulnerable early-game. PoM if you can't manage your mana. Triumph in all other cases. Legend: Tenacity when you need tenacity. Legend: Alacrity in all other cases.

Inspiration
Inspiration is useful for surviving early-game poke lanes. Inspiration will not help much if at all late-game. Take Biscuit Delivery and Time Warp Tonic or Cosmic Insight based on preference.

Resolve
Resolve is useful for surviving early-game fights. Resolve will help a small amount late-game, but in most cases, it will not help much late-game. Take Unflinching and Second Wind or Bone Plating based on preference.

Sorcery
Sorcery is useful for focusing on heavy roaming. Take Celerity and Nimbus Cloak or Waterwalking based on preference.
