The Nike Tiempo Legend III football boots have received a radical overhaul to become a part of the Nike Elite Series. The most highly anticipated boots release of the summer, Nike designers have reduced the weight of each boot so players can perform at their best at this summer's World Cup.
The Nike Elite Tiempo Legend football boots have lightweight construction, intricate engineering, carbon-enforced strength and high contrast colors. They are the pinnacle of Nike's Tiempo range, and combine ball touch and feel with lightweight speed performance!
To develop the Nike Elite Legend football boots, Nike have undertaken extensive research and player testing. Their findings showed the average energy expenditure of an elite player is over 1,000 Kilo Calories per game for a 75kg player. Reducing the weight carried by players helps reduce the energy needed over the course of 90 minutes.
By delivering a super-strong and lightweight carbon fibre plate, the Elite Nike Tiempo Legends are 16% lighter to give players an edge in the final stages of a game.
To combine with the speed and lightweight sole-plate, Nike have re-engineered the upper of the Nike Elite Tiempo Legend football boots. The Nike Tiempo is synonymous with ball touch and feel, but to maintain 'Elite' performance Nike have utilised their
Kanga-Lite material, a water-resistant synthetic that mimics the supreme ball feel and touch of kangaroo leather whilst maintaining its performance in all conditions.
The high contrast Metallic Mach Purple and Total Orange colours are engineered together for enhanced visibility. According to Nike an average person’s vision is 99% peripheral, with under 1% considered focused. Nike designers analyzed the colour spectrum to identify a unique two colour combination designed to increase visual performance, and trigger a stimulus to rapidly tune peripheral vision. For a footballer this enables them to quickly spot their teammates and execute a game-changing pass.
The supercharged Nike Elite football boots are providing new levels of performance, and the Nike Elite Tiempo Legend football boots are a testament to this. Available to order from 22nd May, we can expect to see the likes of Gerard Pique, Andrea Pirlo, Joe Cole and Carlos Tevez wearing The Nike Elite Tiempo Legend football boots at this summer's World Cup.
Perhaps the major downside? Well, an Elite series is never going to be cheap.
Infact, you might have to start saving now, as these Elite
edition of the Tiempo Legend football boots will retail for £215 GBP a pair
when they hit selected retailers and Nike stores.
