Nike take the sixth and most advanced generation Tiempo right back to the roots of the famous silo with a classic "Black/White/Metallic Gold" colourway.
After launching in a "Platinum/Black/Hyper Orange" 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. Bliss.
The Tiempo Legend 6 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 brains behind the new concept is Nike Football designer Vianney de Montgolfier who explains; “With this new construction, Tiempo Legend 6 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.”
