For over 20 years, Tiempo has been synonymous with premium leather football boots. The new Tiempo Legend 6 builds upon that legacy with innovative craftsmanship for dominant touch. “Tiempo players start the attack,” says Nike Football Designer Vianney de Montgolfier. “We prioritize the touch and precision they depend on. With Tiempo Legend 6, we challenged ourselves to work with legendary materials in a new way.”
Nike Football is known for revolutionising the game through innovations like Nike Flyknit and Dynamic Fit collars. But Nike’s design team grew up wearing the era’s leather boots and retains high regard for the material, as well as the soft touch associated with it. Collectively, the team began exploring the potential of fusing leather to Nike’s iconic football silhouettes in 2014. Their thinking quickly evolved into experimentation and, ultimately, a premium collection of hybrid leather boots: Nike Tech Craft.
Nike Tech Craft strategically places a thin layer of leather in high ball-contact areas (the medial and lateral sides of the forefoot) on each of Nike’s four football boot styles — Hypervenom, Magista, Mercurial and Tiempo. Each boot remains true to its original aesthetic and performance attributes, but with the soft touch and classic appeal of leather.
This June and July Nike will unleash four of the most innovative pieces of performance footwear that the beautiful game has ever seen. The Hypervenom, Tiempo V, Magista and Mercurial Superfly will converge on the feet of football’s greatest players on sport’s greatest stage.
The Nike Tiempo (b. 1994) is synonymous with the birth of Nike Football. Over the last twenty years, the Tiempo name has become the industry benchmark for premium, crafted football boots.
Today Nike celebrates this seminal boot with the lTiempo XX Pack, composed of the new Tiempo Legend V and Tiempo ’94. Only 500 pairs of this limited edition pack have been produced.
The Tiempo Legend V and Tiempo 94 both feature premium alegria K-Leather,the purest and most natural K-leather, with a black and white finish — the boots’ original colors. Additional but subtle color pops reflect today’s player.
Each shoe is imprinted with “XX” on the heel to signify 20 years of Tiempo excellence. The Tiempo XX pack is available now from Nike.com
Since 1994, football has changed. The game is faster, with dynamic full-field play essential for every athlete on the pitch. With this in mind, and with the input of athletes such as Carlos Tevez, Gerard Pique, and Ronaldinho, Nike Football melds the legacy of Tiempo with the needs of the modern game to create the best leather football boot to-date.
Who You Calling Done?! Barks Ashley Cole, as he prepares to prove his doubters wrong in a fresh pair of boots. Tomorrow we meet the new generation of Tiempo, which is rumoured to be the biggest overhaul the boot has ever seen. Ahead of the launch Nike have released this viral of Ashley.
