The Nike Tiempo Future DNA Tiempo Legend brings classic Nike Football design to one of the brand’s latest on-pitch innovations.
Originally released in 2011, the Nike Tiempo Legend IV Elite was the lightest Tiempo of its time — by at least 20 grams. Even more enticing than its lightweight feel was its ability to stand out on the pitch: the cleat’s vibrant orange pop of colour from the tongue, heel graphic, stud tips and laces created a stark contrast from the black premium leather upper (a signature of the Tiempo franchise).
Nike Flywire technology was integrated into the leather for a midfoot lockdown and, overall, more dynamic fit, while enhanced vamp stitching was strategically placed for lateral agility.
With tribute to its predecessor, the latest Nike Tiempo Legend 8 gets OG Tiempo Legend IV Elite color treatment. Its fit and feel is defined by the Legend 8’s stitchless, quilted diamond pattern upper and Flyknit Fit Tunnel, providing a supportive and snug fit around the midfoot. Additionally, the boot has Quadfit mesh in the forefoot to prevent overstretch of the outer leather layer.
The boot is the fourth and final release from Nike Football’s Future DNA Pack, in which Nike’s current performance boots each pay homage to a classic Nike Football design, and follows the release of the Nike Phantom VSN 2 Future DNA Hypervenom, the Nike Mercurial Vapor Future DNA Mercurial and the Nike Phantom VNM Future DNA T90.
