Nike Launch Limited Edition Totti Tiempo

A golden gift fit for an icon. Nike celebrate Francesco Totti's 25th year at AS Roma by launching a limited edition Nike Tiempo Legend for the Italian to wear in the derby against Lazio on April 30. Complete with bespoke tongue, because when you're Francesco Totti you can pretty much have whatever you want.

Totti has made it his trademark to modify every Nike Tiempo he receives with an elasticated fold-over tongue, and Nike have recognised this by including the old-school feature on his exclusive gold Tiempo Legend 6. Drenched in golden class, the Nike Tiempo Totti X Roma boot features a full leather upper with black detailing sitting on that shimmering gold aesthetic. If these are to be the boots he finally hangs up, then they're the perfect reflection of his trophy littered career – a career in which he's worn numerous tongue tethered editions.

Further bespoke treatment comes in the form of 'Totti' branding on the heels and a rose tinted golden sole-plate to further install a feel of pure premium 24 carat quality. Few players in world football could pull off quite a look but Totti is a special edition himself. A god amongst Roma fans and a career as luxurious as the boot he's about to slip into. A fitting tribute from Nike to a man who represents loyalty, style and success. 40 years young. 25 years of Roma.

Some description

Just 2,500 pairs of the Nike Tiempo Totti X Roma boots will go up for grabs on April 25 before the man himself picks up his pair from the AS Roma store at Piazza San Lorenzo in Rome on April 26. Each pair will be individually numbered on the heel for an added sense of desirability. Don't expect these to hang around for long – Totti's first limited edition boot in 2015 sold out in seconds.
