Ah, the summer of 1994. 2 Unlimited were on top of the charts with The Real Thing, Forrest Gump and The Lion King were battling it out to be the biggest grossing film of the year and Motor Trend magazine decreed that the car of the year was the Ford Mustang. And of course, there was the small matter of the World Cup.

The tournament was held in the USA for the first time and with the host nation reaching the knockout stages, it was a storming success. The average attendance was 69,000 and the total attendance 3.6 million, the highest in World Cup history.

The final was Brazil verus Italy, Brazil led by Romario and Italy by the great Paolo Maldini. As well as becoming the first final to be decided on penalties (Brazil won 3 – 2) the game was also notable as both Romario and Maldini wore the Nike Tiempo Premier.

Fifteen years on, Nike has re-created the classic Tiempo with a Limited Edition Tiempo ’94.


This very special football boot has the throwback style of the ’94 boot with a modern, updated outsole for excellent traction.

It includes a kangaroo leather upper with the same vamp pattern as the 1994 football boot and a retro Tiempo Premier folding tongue.


The insole features a molded sockliner with Poron cushioning for comfort, and “LIMITED EDITION” detailing.

The outsole is composed of lightweight TPU with glass fibre shank and forefoot flex grooves. Combination conical and bladed studs for traction and pressure dispersion, on firm, natural surfaces.


This is a great ‘feel good’ boot and is guaranteed to bring back memories of those fantastic 3 weeks in the American sunshine. Crafted in Italy, this exclusive football boot comes with a commemorative shoe bag.


The Tiempo 94 is a limited edition football boot with just 1994 of them being made.
It retailed at £99.99.

    Oh I’ll never forget that penalty missed by Barezzi as well as Roberto Baggio’s.

    Now for the football boot, I’m so getting one those, specially knowing that Romario wore it in his days.

    Mint boots. Makes me tempted to get a perm haircut and fish out my ’96 arsenal away shirt. Exactly what I’ll do if I got my hands on a pair. Old skool!!

    Can’t help but think how adidas made their 1970 retro boots a few years ago and think that these are just a copy/response to adidas…

    no offence to nike but i think Copa’s are better and they were made 20yrs earlier.

    My pair came in the post this morning, and they look class. These are a proper boot and although im sure most of them will end up with collectors somewhere, i will be wearing them on the pitch. The kangaroo leather is incredibly soft and i can honestly say these are the most comfortable boots ive worn. Great boot by nike. Number 1110 of 1194.
