The brand new Nike Tiempo Legend V is back with a brand new colourway, and this time around we are talking black and white. Truly elegant are a sure hit with the classic football players.
Nike have been very generous throughout the whole of December, and luckily they have brought the generosity into the new year also, something we very much appreciate. The latest result of the Nike generosity is a brand new version of the Nike Tiempo Legend V, we take a bow and welcome the boot.
The Nike Tiempo Legend V is Nike's latest incarnation of the modern classic with roots as far back as 1994, and which, in recent times, has been presented by a magically playing Ronaldinho. Today it is players such as Pique, Ramos and Carlos Tevez's preferred boot, and with the latest version of the Nike Tiempo Legend V, they have got a football boot that is a treat, both to ball and foot.
With the latest generation of the Nike Tiempo Legend series, the Americans have done their best to create a modern boot that is future proof. Nike have spent two and a half years in creating this football boot, and they have worked on uniting a fantastic touch on the ball and a consistent weight. Leather boots are know to get heavy once they get wet, but Nike have worked on avoiding this with the new Nike Tiempo Legend V.
The upper on the Nike Tiempo Legend V is made of an incredibly soft and supple kangaroo leather. It provides a fantastic touch on the ball and just as incredible fit in the boot. The rear part of the heel is made of Nike's leather-emulating KangaLite material to increase the stability and durability. In addition, the boot is equipped with Nike's ACC technology, which equals sublime control in all weather conditions.
And when it's raining cats and dogs, it is important that your boots do not take up all the water, and makes your boots heavy. Therefore, Nike have added their advanced Hypershield technology to the new Nike Tiempo Legend V. Hypershield is developed to reject water, in order to ensure that the leather does not take up water; and with this addition, Nike have managed to create a leather boot with the advantages that are normally only found with synthetic boots.
This revolutionising Hypershield upper manages to change the boots water uptake remarkably. The fifth generation of the Nike Tiempo Legend absorbs 73% less water, when compared to the Nike Tiempo Legend IV; the material dries 24% faster, and the upper is 88% stronger than that of the Tiempo Legend IV according to Nike's own tests. In other words we are talking about a substantial technological improvement, and it looks like the Tiempo collection has a very bright future ahead.
The sole is made of TPU, and is developed to be flexible and moveable. Nike have been inspired by their Nike Free collection, where the shoe follows the natural movement of the foot. If a running shoe can follow your body, then why not also a football boot? The Nike Tiempo Legend V takes comfort and fit to a new level with a flexible sole around the forefoot.
Regarding the stud configuration, Nike have chosen to mix the conical studs in front with bladed studs around the back. The conical studs provide better rotation and distribution of pressure, while the bladed studs in the back ensures good stability. Furthermore, the studs have in general become slightly wider, which is done to help you grip better.
With a combination of black and white you now have even more options, if you have taken an interest in the new and technologically advanced Nike Tiempo Legend. Even though the boot has only been on the market for just over a month, this is already it's third colour update, and one can only hope that Nike will continue treating us like this for the whole year.
With the Nike Tiempo Legend V Black/White, Nike have created yet another impressive version of the technologically advanced boot. What do you think of the new colour? And have you tried the Nike Tiempo Legend V? Feel free to leave a comment here, or on Facebook and Twitter.
