Nike have released the latest colorway in their highly rated Nike Tiempo Legend III series, coming in an easy to spot White/Black/Volt. The highlight of the Tiempo series is the super soft, handcrafted kangaroo leather that is designed for a super comfortable fit. These boots are an all round performer, designed to suit a majority of players on the field. For comparison, they fall in a similar category as the likes of the Adidas adiPure and the Lotto Stadio, specifically when it comes to the leather.
Like most white cleats, you are going to have the concern of trying to keep these clean, but if you are going to put in the effort then they will be well worth it. The volt yellow tick gives the boots a new look. My preference would be for some sort of a blue or dark colored tick but there is going to be a selection of the market interested in how these look.
It has been a while since I tested the Nike Tiempo Legend. To be honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of the package. My primary concern centered around their fit and the actual sizing. If you are going to buy a pair I recommend ordering up an extra half size as they seem to fit tight. Breaking them in turned out to be a pain and I really wish I had tested them in a 9.5US. Recently, I have received many requests for a review of the Elite version and I am looking to get a pair in a 9.5US to see what difference the sizing makes.
If you are in the market for a no-nonsense cleat that will give you support and performance at a decent price (and are sure of the sizing), these might be ideal for you.
