Nike take the sixth and most advanced generation Tiempo right back to the roots of the famous silo with a classic "Blackout" colourway.After launching in a " Blackout " colourway Nike have satisfied the traditional and most loyal Tiempo player with a secondary colour update that is drenched in the heritage design that established the Swoosh in football. Black upper, white Swooshes and gold trimming.
The boots feature an all-white base on the upper and appears to be crafted a lot like a Nike Tiempo Legend VI FG Blackout Football Boots. Although the official tech specs have not been released yet, you can expect the leather on this upper to be a similar type of Algeria leather like the one found on the Totti-exclusive Legend. A classic fold-over tongue featuring his famous 10R logo is an awesome feature to really bring back even more nostalgia for the boots.
The Tiempo Legend 6 Blackout Football Boots arrives with a new take on the trademark quilted leather toe box. Nike have delivered the touch attributes of quilting without extensively perforating the leather in a new look for the Tiempo Legend 6, which also features an internal, cushioned cage that holds its shape and grooves the leather with minimal stitching.
The Nike Swoosh is a very shiny gold and it is a similar look as with the Totti Legend 6, but this time with gold. The soleplate features the standard style Legend 6 studs that many claim as one of the best stud patterns on the market. The soleplate may be the most spectacular part of this limited edition boot. At the heel, it is a solid gold plate but as we go up, we start to fade into white in the toe box and written under the soleplate is "Ronaldinho 10".
The brains behind the new concept is Nike Football designer Vianney de Montgolfier who explains; "With this new construction, Tiempo Legend 6 Blackout Football Boots delivers the feel of quilting, but without compromising the leather. The foam backer has been vacuum pressed to the leather to ensure a soft, seamless construction. By eliminating quilting, we reduce the possibility of mud or water seeping in through the quilt lines, as that can harden the leather." This shoe makes us tingle inside, it is simply hot.
