With the excitement of the new Nike Tiempo IV range still on the ascendency, Nike have dropped another colourway to their new range of heritage boots. Exclusive to the Legend IV, SoccerBible is excited to introduce the new White/Blue/Silver Nike Tiempo Legend IV soccer shoes – a stunning alternative for fans of white leather football boots!
The new Tiempo range is the hottest topic in the boot world right now. Check out our exclusive access to Nike's newest Tiempo boot and share your thoughts with the SoccerBible community online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
The new White/Blue/Silver Nike Tiempo Legend IV features a new upper combined of super soft k-leather and Nike's revolutionary Kanga-Lite material. While the leather importantly surfaces the front of the boot for excelled touch, the Kanga-Lite is used in the lateral mid-foot and heel area to offer additional support whilst improving the boots water retention.
The quilted stitching is one of the key elements of the new Nike Tiempo Legend IV soccer shoes and is essential in providing a new level of touch and feel. The new diagonal stitching, inspired by the Ronaldinho Dois, prevents the boot from over stretching while providing superb comfort and a clean surface for a great natural feel.
After 17 years of the iconic Nike Tiempo tongue, the new Tiempo Legend IV has made the potentially controversial move to completely redesign the tongue. For Nike's latest generation heritage boot, a new memory foam based tongue has been included that shapes to the natural contours of the foot, creating a smoother foot shape for accurate kicking contact. A carefully positioned slit avoids any unwanted bone and tendon contact.
Another new feature found in the Nike Legend IV is the new 'FITSOLE' sockliner that has previously been used in Nike running shoes. Now customized for football, the new sockliner is thinner, bringing your foot lower to the ground. The synthetic leather cloth material with non-slippage patterns on the surface allows the side-to-side movement required in football.
The new heel design has been rolled out across the whole Legend IV range. The Nike Legend has always had the iconic stripe piece on the heel. Now for the Tiempo Legend IV, this classic design feature has been made functional as well as iconic. The coloured diagonal heel stripes have been designed to increase the boots visibility, enhancing your team-mates peripheral vision towards the shoe.
White Nike Tiempo's are certainly a popular choice among Tiempo players with athletes including Javier Hernandez, Carlos Puyol, and David Luiz all ending the 10/11 season wearing white Nike Legend III boots. We expect the new white/blue/silver Tiempo Legend IV soccer shoes to see a lot of action when they arrive on the professional circuit next season!
The Nike Tiempo Legend IV comes fully equipped with an all new FG sole-plate. Unlike the previous Legend III, the new outsole is made from a one piece TPU plate. Side bars in the mid-foot area are designed to provide torsion strength while the four rear studs are angled inwards to reduce the heel pressure. Small studs in the toe and heel area of the Nike Tiempo Legend IV provide extra traction for the toe off.
The new Nike Tiempo Legend IV soccer shoes will be available to pre-order from June 20th for a July 1st launch and will be priced at around £120 GBP / $150 USD / €135 EURO.
