Nike has added another set of awesome colorways to their TiempoX 10R story, following on from last year’s initial releases. Ronaldinho’s career was filled with many wonderfully entertaining moments, winning goals, top corner free kicks, Rabonas, some dancing and more. The second drop of the Nike 10R City Collection highlights Ronaldinho’s exploits during the Barcelona and Milan chapters of his career.
If you haven’t seen the 10R collection before, they are pretty darn wonderful! A waterproof calf leather upper with mesh lining offers exceptional comfort and touch on the ball. Nike has strategically positioned layers of quilted stitching along the forefoot to match the performance of iconic Ronaldhino Tiempos of the past. They also use a full-length Phylon midsole for lightweight cushioning, making them ideal for use on court and streets.
Below are more details on the Barca and Milan edition of the Tiempo 10R. You can find both boots available in very limited quantities right now at soccer.com.
During his five years in Barcelona, Ronaldinho continued to mesmerize fans with his creative play style. Despite helping the club achieve their greatest European victory in 14 years and collecting numerous personal awards, the greatest recognition of 10R’s talent came during the 2005 El Clásico, when he received a standing ovation from rival Madrid fans—in their own stadium—for his spectacular performance in FCB’s 3–0 road victory. The TiempoX 10R Barcelona is a tribute to his time with the Blaugrana.
The boot features a quilted leather upper in the white and gold colorway of the Tiempo Legend I boots Ronaldinho wore during El Clásico in 2005. Red, orange, and yellow stitching on the heel that dates back to his first signature boots represent Family, Music, and Joy. A bespoke 10R logo appears on the toe, as well as a gold “shaka” hand sign printed on the heel of the sockliner. The phrase Jugo amb la músìca al meu cap—his father’s reminder to play with music in his head—is written in Catalan on the tongue to commemorate his time at Barcelona and his creative play style.

When Ronaldinho moved to Milan, he was met with a new club, a new position, and a new jersey number. From his first goal in Serie A to his last season as a champion of Italy, Ronaldinho always played with a smile. The TiempoX 10R Milan is a symbol of that winning spirit.
The boots feature a quilted leather upper in the iconic red and black colorway of Milan’s home kit. Red, orange, and yellow stitching on the heel that dates back to Ronaldinho’s first signature boots represent Family, Music, and Joy. A bespoke 10R logo appears on the toe, as well as a black “shaka” hand sign printed on the heel of the sockliner. The phrase Jo gioco con musica in teste—his father’s reminder to play with music in his head—is written in Italian on the tongue to commemorate his time at Milan and his creative play style.
