The latest colorway release in the Nike Tiempo IV range comes in a relatively basic White/Siren Red/Metallic Platinum. White releases seems to be a currently trend with the Tiempo IV at the moment, with 2 other white colorways hitting the market in recent months. The difference on this one is the Red detailing through the upper. To be honest, I can’t say it is my preferred colorway release, but I am sure they will find a pretty nice following! The one thing I am a fan of is how the actual boot performs in game!
I tested the Elite Tiempo IV a few months back with positive results. Performance wise, these just straight up work and they compliment any player looking for a boot that provides great touch and control. The leather upper is top quality and ranks amongst the best I have had the opportunity to test.
Worth noting is that fact that Nike has released this colorway in both the regular and Elite version. You need to compare the technology included on the Elite range to understand where the money is going. What you get with the Elite that you don’t get with the regular is a Carbon Fiber soleplate and the addition of Flywire. This results in a pretty minimal weight difference of 0.2oz, but a more protected upper on the Elite. Being honest, I have found that the regular version offers an enormously better value for money option and works just as effectively in game.
Price wise, the Elite comes in at $349.99, while the regular version will cost $149.99.
