Questions about armors and shields - affect on speed?

Armors are divided into classes such as light, medium heavy and more, what effect does this have on the character (if any) does it affect the running speed like with shields? I can't find info about this at arreat summit so I thought I'd ask here...

Someone clarify please!

Note that the speed penalty is Effective_FRW (like Skill_FRW), not Item_FRW which is subject to diminishing returns.

Going from light armor to heavy armor is not the same as going from 30% FRW boots to 20% FRW boots.

See here for more info. Even though it says 1.09d, it is valid for 1.11b

Ok I see, thanks for the help! I like to run fast with my javazon, but now I have a medium armor but a light shield, 40FRW boots, titans 30FRW and valk wing 20FRW. Maybe I will make a Stealth runeword (+25%) in an archon plate to increase it even more :p And maybe buy that cats eye amu with 30% FRW. I'd run like hell... but this means I need a lot of resists and I don't afford anni or torch yet... Is it possible to get more FRW except for from charms? I mean rings, belt or gloves?

M'avina's Tenet belt (20%). No gloves or rings. It would probably be better to get an Act 1 merc with harmony for the Vigor Aura.

Thanks for the list, however both Aldurs and IK boots have +40FRW, I'm thinking about the mavina belt, maybe =) But then it comes to the fact that playing with my barb after playing with my ama feels so SLOW T_T ... But running fast helps a lot and is fun =)
