The Nike Tiempo Legend IV Elite is for the footballer who favours both comfort and performance on the pitch. The latest incarnation of the Tiempo builds on the series’ 17 years of craftsmanship by incorporating modern features such as a carbon-fibre plate, Nike Flywire technology and improved stud configuration to make it a lighter and meaner boot.
The Tiempo Legend IV Elite features an ultra-soft and durable premium kangaroo leather upper and weighs 20 grams lighter than its predecessor. The soft upper as well as its improved cushioning and comfort offers a better natural touch and control – qualities any footballer can appreciate, regardless of which position you play.
Nike Flywire technology has been built into the boot’s natural leather to add strength without sacrificing its softness and touch. It also adds greater mid-foot support to the Tiempo, making it a hardy option for robust play. Player movement is better supported through enhancements in the Tiempo’s arch and heel support. Its ultra-light carbon-fibre plate remains flat, keeping it solid yet responsive. Studs comprise of rounded conical studs and two central blades that offer improved traction when needed.
The heel of the Tiempo Legend IV Elite is in reflective white/orange and vibrant orange detailing on the rest of the boot. With football relying a lot on peripheral vision, the striking colours of the Tiempo will make you a more visible target for passes on the pitch. It is the footwear of choice for Barcelona and Spain defender, Gerard Pique, as well as our very own Singapore Lions, Hariss Harun, Aleksander Duric and skipper Shahril Ishak.
$489. Available at the Nike Flagship Store at Wisma Atria and other selected Nike stores in Singapore. More details here. Check out more pictures of the Nike Tiempo Legend IV Elite below.
