Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Football Boots
The Nike Tiempo has been around for over 20 years and ever since its inception it’s been synonymous with premium leather football boots. Well, the Tiempo is back with a new design – the Legend 6 – and it’s better than ever!
The new Tiempo Legend 6 builds upon the legacy with innovative craftsmanship for dominant touch. With previous incarnations, the Tiempo has featured a quilted leather toe box but for the Legend 6, Nike wanted to keep the qualities of quilting without having to compromise the leather.
That means the new boots features an internal, cushioned cage that holds its shape and grooves the leather with minimal stitching. By eliminating quilting, Nike have reduced the possibility of mud or water seeping in through the quilt lines, as that can harden the leather.
Another iconic element of the Tiempo, the tongue, has also been modernised for performance. Tiempo Legend 6 retains the silhouette’s traditional tongue aesthetic while moving to a protective, affixed one-piece solution that is integrated into the laces.
Other features on the boot include an internal mid-foot cage, molded heel and microfiber sockliner to help keep the foot nice and sturdy. The medial side of the boot is also slightly higher than the lateral, to make sure it fits in line with the anatomy of the ankle.
The heel counter of the Tiempo is designed for ultimate comfort. Branding features with ‘Tiempo’ written across the back of the heel and Swooshes on the boot that nearly wraparound but do not touch.
The Bike Tiempo Legend 6 football boots will be available from the Nike Football App on the 19th November and on the Nike Website on the 1st December where they can also be customised through NIKEiD.
