Tiempo Legend 7 is another big leap forward in terms of technology for Nike’s classic kangaroo leather silo. The idea of creating a leather football and keeping it true to that heritage, while still innovating and pushing the design is a tough balance to keep, but honestly no other boot does it as well as Tiempo. The upgrade in tech from the Legend V to the Legend VI was very, very big, but impressively this new generation is an even greater evolution than its immensely popular predecessor was.
The reason for this is in great part thanks to the new incorporation of Flyknit in the boots, which means that all four Nike silos now use the technology in four different ways. On the Tiempo, which is why you are here of course, the Flyknit is part of the midfoot and encases Flywire cables that run through the upper, so you can tighten and loosen the fit to your own preference. Nike quite rightly see the fit in a football boot, as absolutely key to the boot and how the athlete experiences the performance. Also, when we write athlete, remember that in Nike’s eyes that means you too. “If you have a body, you’re an athlete.”
If you want to get your hands on the Nike Tiempo Legend 7, then you have to wait until the 13th of July. Sign up for more information on the launch here.
