For anyone in the US that has been eagerly awaiting the release of the extraordinarily elegant Nike Tiempo Pirlo, today is a very good day!
The limited edition release, which sold out within minutes in the UK, has finally made its way across the pond after an extended waiting period. It is pretty easy to gauge how quickly a boot will sell depending on fan reaction; these boots have been elevated to “must have” right through social media, so I expect that they won’t hang around long.

As you’d expect, there are plenty of special touches to this release.
The boot’s upper features premium Alegria leather in a merlot colorway inspired by the juice of the grape. Similar to Pratum Coller’s logo (Pirlo’s family winery), four gold stars appear on the boot’s heel counter and plate to honor Italy’s World Cup titles. The Italian flag is also featured on the lace aglet. As a nod to Tiempo’s heritage and the process of producing wine, Aged Since ’94 appears in metallic gold on a genuine cork sockliner and also on the polka dot shoebox. The boots are packaged similar to a bottle of wine and include an additional performance sockliner.
