Ever wondered what boots Sir Alex Ferguson wears?
Well, we have the answer! His boot of choice since 2002 has been the Nike Tiempo. Sir Alex is a regular out on the pitch and like any serious manager, he is not afraid to step in and give a quick demo of how it should be done. Over the past 11 seasons, he has been sporting a consistent black colorway in the heritage range, following the line of Tiempo releases through those years, from the Premier to the Legend. The only one he hasn’t taken to is the current Tiempo Legend IV release (which features no tongue). Important to note, Manchester United has been sponsored by Nike that entire time, which does mean he had to stick to wearing Nike boots.
But he hasn’t always been a Tiempo range.
Back in the 1999/2000 season when Manchester United won the treble, they were sponsored by Umbro and that had Fergie wearing an iconic pair of Umbro Speciali. Again, he stuck it out with the Blackout colorway.
And then there was his managerial career before heading to Manchester. While manager of Aberdeen and Scotland, he sported some Umbro boots. Aberdeen were sponsored by Adidas at the time, so it makes sense that he would be wearing the signature 3-stripe boots.
We salute everything Sir Alex has done over the past three decades and appreciate the fact that his choice of footwear stayed as consistent as his winning attitude!
