As part of a project to provide a step-by-step guide to the NIKEiD process, Nike allowed me to create a SoccerCleats101 version of whatever boot I wanted. Since, I recently picked up a pair of T90 Strikes for review and knowing there was going to be a new Vapor released, my choice was limited to one boot – the Tiempo Legend. OK, so let me rephrase that and remove the term limited!! Who out there is not a fan of the Tiempo Legend – they are a seriously high performing boot and I was stoked that they were the pair I got to personalize.
I am sure that some of you might have already noticed the colorway I went for. When creating a personalized boot, you go for a style that you are passionate about, and for me it turned out to be the opportunity to create a look that matches the colors of my home country – Ireland. We have seen the US, Mexico and Canadian version, but before creating these, I hadn’t seen an Irish colorway. It is not often you get to create a unique look, and although these are not the best looking design in the world, they carry more than just a visual appeal for me personally.
In order to complete the boot, it needs a colorway – so I am referring to these as a Cloudy White/Shamrock Green/Leprechaun Orange colorway. I think it is a fitting collection that goes nicely with some of the other wacky colorway names we have seen of late!
As for the NikeID process, stay tuned for a full and detailed step-by-step guide, which will be posted in the next week. Until then, check out some of the pre-made designs below that can be used to create your own inspiration. If you do create one, add it to our Facebook Wall for others to see!
