I’m sure I’m not the only one who will be farming out mats ahead of time to grab a pair of these:

Binds when equipped
1293 Armor (+0)
+138 Agility
+128 Stamina
+85 Intellect
Red Socket
Yellow Socket
Blue Socket
Socket Bonus: +8 Agility
Durability 105 / 105

Requires Level 80
Item Level 264

Equip: Increases attack power by 216.
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 92.
Equip: Improves haste rating by 77.
Disenchanting requires Enchanting (375)
Sell Price: 14g60s26c

Without taking the gem slots into account (but assuming, of course, that they’ll be enchanted with leg armor), these pants offer 514 total Attack Power to Enhancement Shamans, and the right mix of stats we look for outside of Hit and Expertise.

If you gem according to socket colors, a red epic and a yellow or orange epic can net you an additional 68 Attack Power — 40 (red), plus 20 (yellow), plus 8 (socket bonus). That’s reason enough to go for the socket bonus, especially if you could use the yellow slot for Hit or Crit.
