Yesterday, we introduced you to the Special Edition Nike Tiempo Legend Totti X Roma. Today, we get to tell you they are now available to buy in the US, well ahead of the regular are morning drop. There are only 2,500 pairs of the ludicrously good looking, signature Gold wrapped boots released worldwide, and pairs are going to disappear fast.
Nike has kept the price pretty reasonable on this one, as they have a release retail price of $212 at soccer.com, with shipping available as of today.
Totti is renowned for his love for Roma and loyalty to the club, having spent his entire professional career, spanning 25 years, with AS Roma. Becoming captain of the club in the 1998-1999 season, Totti is widely venerated as “Il Capitano” (the Captain) of the entire city. His stature in Rome is such that he has been considered its Eighth King.
“When I thought about a boot that could reflect the 25 years of my career, I immediately thought of gold. This boot had to encapsulate all my values — my family, AS Roma and the city of Rome. Nike understood straightaway how to create these boots,” explains Totti.
The boots’ upper is crafted in soft leather in a gold colorway, in honor of Totti’s achievements for AS Roma and his country – which marked him out as one of the greatest ever attacking playmakers. Personalised with ‘TOTTI’ on the heel counter and the Swoosh contrasting in black, the upper features the names of Totti’s three children — Cristian, Chanel and Isabel — in his own handwriting.
The signature, elongated tongue features “Aeterno” on the inside, whilst the outside is adorned with the Roman numeral “X” in reference to the player’s number 10 jersey, as well as the city’s ancient history. The aglets feature “Totti” in gold and red detailing, whilst the sole is a black chromed plate.
The boot’s insole reflects the colours of AS Roma and ‘TottiXRoma’ appears in gold above the specially created crest.
