It has been over 3 months since we have seen a release in the Nike Tiempo IV series but finally Nike has updated things with this release as part of their Spring 13 collection. I think we were all starting to wonder if the Tiempo IV range had seen its last colorway, with a future release right on the horizon. But this look seems to have pleased avid Tiempo fans, with the Crimson upper adding a new screaming statement.
The official colorway is listed as a Sunburst/White/Total Crimson and these boots are bright. The addition of a Sunburst element makes them stand out even further, this is the orange like detailing on the laces and side of the boot. Again, the naming convention is slightly tricky on this one.
Anyone interested can pick up a pair from Soccer.com.
When it comes to insider knowledge of the boots, I’ve had the opportunity to test a pair and also NikeID personalize my own Irish version, both times the boot proved extremely successful. Every so often (like the celebrity St. Patrick’s day Ireland vs England game last week) I’ll snap out the NikeID pair to play in and they never let me down.
Seen as the traditionalist boot in the Nike line-up, the Tiempo Legend offers a comfortable fit in a pretty modern package. They just straight up work and they will compliment any player looking for a boot that provides great touch and control. The upper is combination of a K-leather and a Kanga-Lite and it ranks amongst the best I have had the opportunity to test. Obviously the forefoot consists of the Kangaroo, while the side and around the heel is where you will find the Kanga. The benefit of this is that you have a lighter all around boot with waterproof properties around the side of the boot. This aids in durability and reduces water retention.
Again, these boots are currently available to buy at soccer.com.
