Nike’s Tiempo silo is their longest serving boot silo having been introduced back at the 1994 World. Over the years the Tiempo range has been known for their superb comfort and ball feel but certainly not for their wild colourway. Nike have stuck with more classic, stylish colour combinations for the Tiempo range and that is the case again with these Black/White/Challenge Red Tiempo Legend IV boots.
The Tiempo Legend IV features an upper combined of super soft k-leather and Nike’s revolutionary Kanga-Lite material. The front of the boot is leather for a superb touch while 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 Nike Tiempo Legend IV and prevents the boot from over-stretching while providing superb comfort and a clean surface for a great natural feel.
The Tiempo Legend IV doesn’t feature the iconic fold over tongue like the previous incarnations but instead has 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.
The Nike Tiempo Legend IV’s 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. Very small studs in the toe and heel area provide extra traction.
