Gold seems to be the color of the month right now, and Nike is jumping head first into the action! Today, the swoosh dropped a glorious pair of Nike Premier II in Metallic Vivid Gold and the reaction from fans has been just as expected. Taking inspiration from Ronaldinho’s iconic gold Tiempo Legend, these new Nike Premier offers an ideal combination of premium materials, modern technology and an iconic look that is well and truly 10R approved.
And that gold upper is not just looks! Nike has made sure performance is kept at a premium, using a super supple, k-leather upper that wraps your foot in comfort and provides an insanely smooth touch. It is the simple elegance that makes them so appealing.
Then there is the iconic fold over tongue that brings back the nostalgia of the Tiempo II, one of Nike’s most popular k-leather releases. It sits neatly across the top of the laces, creating an old school look. Finally underfoot, Nike keep things simple yet effective with a lightweight TPU plate with low-profile conical studs. This makes them ideal for use on FG and turf surfaces.
And best of all they are listed at their standard price of $109.99, making them one of the top value for money options on the market. From concept, Nike’s goal with the Premier series was to create a high performing, timeless classic that would be available to consumers at an affordable price. Adding a gold colorway really doubles down on that goal!
