Nike Tiempo Legend V Premium
Nike Football’s Tiempo lineage continues into 2015 with the Tiempo Legend V Premium. First introduced as the Tiempo D in 1985, this football boot has evolved significantly while remaining instantly recognizable to fans and players alike.
The Tiempo Legend V Premium is high in quality and made with quilted Alegria leather and it’s protected by Nike Hypershield and resists overstretch.
Nike packaging has long included the statement: “Engineered to the exact specifications of championship athletes.” One of those championship athletes, AS Roma legend Francesco Totti, has warn the iconic Tiempo tongue on his boots for years and continues to do so with the 2015 model.
Nike Football’s muse said, “I have always played with boots that had a tongue and for me, this detail on the product is very important. I wear the Tiempo because it is a comfortable boot with a soft leather upper that adapts well to the foot’s shape and grants a great touch of the ball. It’s a classic boot that helps me perform at my best when I’m on the pitch.”
Totti has played his entire legendary career with AS Roma, becoming the club’s top goal scorer and most-capped player. His reputation as a warrior inspired Nike’s design team to place a unique logo on the sockliner that incorporates Totti’s uniform number (10). The tongue and Swoosh of this boot also play off the warrior inspiration with a metallic aesthetic designed to mimic armor.
Three-thousand pairs of the Tiempo Legend V Premium will be available on nike.com from the 5th March with each pair coming individually numbered. The boot will set you back around £150.
