Nike Tiempo 94 Football Boots
The Nike Tiempo 94 football boots are a celebration of Nike's football heritage!
Nike have launched these Special Edition Tiempo 94 football boots. Inspired by the original Nike Tiempo worn during the 1994 World Cup, and utilising modern materials and techniques while maintaining the clean traditional look.
1994 was the year of the World Cup in the USA, and it was also the year Nike announced themselves to the world of football boots. During the prestigious 1994 World Cup Final, Nike supplied the boots for no less than ten of the players on the pitch, all wearing the Nike Tiempo! And more importantly, Nike managed to get two of the biggest stars in world football at the time - footballing legends Paolo Maldini and Romario.
'94 World Cup final - Nike Tiempo wearers Maldini and Romario battle for the ball
Nike have recreated the classic Tiempo from 1994, a boot that was created for players who demand the ultimate in ball touch and feel from their football boots. Since '94 the Tiempo range has gone from strength to strength, and are now the benchmark for finesse and touch football boots. The Nike Tiempo's can boast such footballing greats as Eric Cantona, Romario, Ian Wright, Andy Moller, Paolo Maldini, Ian Rush, Ronaldinho, Cesc Fabregas, Andrea Pirlo and Sergio Aguero!
A key feature of the Nike Tiempo football boots is the soft quality leather upper, and the Special Edition 94 football boots are no different. The upper is made from an extremely comfortable supersoft kangaroo leather, which recreates the same vamp pattern of the 1994 boots. And the throwback design continues with the retro Tiempo Premier folding
tongue, with stitched Nike logo and '94' gold printed.
The insoles of the Nike Tiempo 94 soccer cleats compliment the comfort of the upper due to the molded sockilner, which has Poron cushioning and is finished with "Limited Edition" detailing. The outsole is composed of lightweight TPU with a glass-fibre shank and
forefoot flex grooves. Whilst combination conical and bladed studs provide traction and pressure dispersion on firm, natural surfaces.
These new limited edition Nike Tiempo 94 football boots
celebrate a great chapter in football history, when Nike and the US
announced themselves onto the world stage. For this reason they are
sure to be popular with players (and also boot collectors!) in the
United States, but they also celebrate all the great Nike Tiempo wearers of the past. You can be sure supporters will be looking to get their hands
on this memorable piece of footwear!
The Nike Tiempo 94 football boots have been specially crafted in Italy to the highest quality, and this exclusive boot comes with a commemorative shoe bag. Available for pre-order from today (17th November), these iconic football boots are expected to retail around £100GBP.
Also, as an extra incentive for any serious boot collector, you can also get a super-limited edition numbered pair from selected retailers! Featuring a numbered box (out of 1994 pairs), the boots have an additional stitched panel underneath the folded down tongue revealing the unique number of your pair!
**UPDATE 19/11** Check out the special presentation box our friends at Nike have given to the SoccerBible!
This massive wooden chest contains pair 0001 of 1994, the ultimate collectors edition of this iconic boot! This solid keeps the boots pristine and would be perfect for display, but only if you can resist playing in these superb boots.
The boots fit snugly into a drawer that slides out of the main box, which has gold Tiempo 94 logos and the desireable "Limited Edition 0001" pair inscription. On the side of the box is also a paragraph intended to highlight the passion and heritage this boot has to offer:
"Step into Maldini's boots and lace up a legend. It's the classic re-crafted, designed to give you the edge. With world class innovations at your feet you're in game changing form. So make like Maldini, wear it and be part of football history."
