Tiempo Legend 8
Nike Football’s heritage boot just took a big step forward. To see what’s new in the latest launch, we went behind the design with Tiempo expert Joel Bagby.
Classic Leather. Modern Look.
Kangaroo leather is the Tiempo’s trademark. So that’s exactly where we started for the latest launch. By molding it onto the upper, we’ve eliminated traditional stitching. That means there are no holes for water to get in and damage the boot. What you’re left with is a textured but seamless surface that will last.
Comfort from Within
To prevent the leather from over-stretching, the Tiempo features an inner sock made of a mesh material called, “Quadfit”. The fabric’s fibers move and adjust to the shape of your foot, then hold tight to limit the stress put on the sides of the boot. Beneath the mesh layer, a stretchy band of Flyknit wraps completely around your arch, creating a glove-like fit for nearly any sized foot.
No Detail Forgotten
When it comes to giving the Tiempo Legend 8 the softest touch possible, no detail is too small. By eliminating glue between the layers, not only do we save weight, but there’s no stiffness between you and the ball. The result is a feel that’s amazing in your hands and unbelievable on your feet.
