When we talk about timeless classics, the Nike Tiempo silo is hands down one of the first that comes to mind. Celebrating their heritage, Nike has handed creative power over to the distinguished craftsmanship found in the Montebelluna area of Italy, renowned for producing top-quality shoes.
The result is the Tiempo Legend IX “Made In Italy” and they are every bit as glorious as you’d expect them to be. First thing to note is that the leather upper is not treated, which gives them their unmistakable off-white upper colorway. From the side, a subtle nod to the area they are created can be found in the green, white, and red of Italy displayed in the rear quarter. On the heel, an insignia of the Montebelluna region gives further notice of the boot’s origins and the quality from which that entails.
The Nike Tiempo’s legendary soft k-leather upper is now backed with a series of soft foam pods. With a subtle raised texture for grip, these pods are placed in specific forefoot and instep locations for more precise dribbling, passing and shooting. Final note, the redesigned Legend 9 Elite outsole boasts a new stud layout specially designed for quicker cuts and sharper stops.
