Nike re-energise the Tiempo Legend IV line-up with a new release for the start of the 2012/13 season. Sticking with the mean & moody feel of Nike's latest drop of colourways, the new Black/Red Tiempo Legend IV is a no-nonsense football boot, offering the Tiempo's famed level of class and performance.
From the early days of the Tiempo 94 to the modernised Legend IV, Nike's most iconic boot silo remains just as relevant in today's market. Keeping it cool in a new Black/Red colourway, the latest Tiempo drop would be perfectly suited to Manchester United duo Partice Evra & Javier Hernandez. Let us know what you think!
The Nike Tiempo has gained a greater following since the release of the Legend IV, with players favouring the comfort offered from the range. Since the Black/Orange launch boot, the simple colourways have been a big hit with pro's. Once again, Nike have come up trumps, delivering a great looking boot worthy of the Tiempo name.
The new Black/Red Nike Tiempo Legend IV features an 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, originally inspired by the 10R Ronaldinho Dois, prevents the boot from over-stretching while providing superb comfort and a clean surface for a great natural feel.
Vamp stitching on the upper is one of the key factors in providing the soft touch and feel the Nike Legend is famous for. The new diagonal stitching in the new Tiempo Legend IV prevents the boot from over stretching while the clean minimal-stitched area at the front of the boot creates a clean surface for great touch.
Another popular feature found in the Nike Tiempo Legend IV football boots is the 'FITSOLE' sock-liner, that has previously been used in Nike running shoes. Now customized for football, the new sock-liner 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 Black/Red Nike Tiempo Legend IV football boots are available to pre-order now from selected online stockists. Priced at the standard Tiempo price of around £120 GBP / $150 USD / €135 EURO, the boots will begin shipping from August 2nd.
