Nike Tiempo Air Legend II – The football boot of choice for Joe Cole, Cesc Fabregas, and Carlos Tevez.


In 1971, Nike created its first football boot prototype. However it was not until 1994 that the football boot brand made its first move into the world’s most popular sport.

The final of the 1994 World Cup, held in the USA, saw 10 of the players on the pitch, including Brazil’s Romario and Italy’s Paolo Maldini, wear the Nike Tiempo.

15 grams lighter than the Nike Air Legend, the Nike Tiempo II weighs in at 315 grams. The design aims for the new Nike Tiempo II were to re-engineer the upper and heel counter, decreasing the tongue size, to reduce the overall weight of the football boot, whilst ensuring a comfortable fit and improved performance.

The new Tiempo Air Legend II has an all over soft kangaroo leather upper for superior comfort and ball feel with the updated pattern design from the previous model giving a pro fit. The fold over tongue is designed to give a smoother ball-striking surface.

The high performance midsole features a moulded sockliner with a re-engineered Zoom Air heel unit providing responsive cushioning and reinforced protection in the tackle.

The lightweight TPU outsole has a glass fibre shank and toe for lightweight support and stability, with forefoot flex grooves providing added flexibility.

A combination of traditional conical and bladed studs allow the player to benefit from a 360 degree grip for optimal traction and pressure dispersion.

The lightweight Nike Tiempo II is available in a soft and firm ground option and retails at a price of £84.99.

    awful in the wet and mine fell apart after 2 months. The whole heel has come away. Now own Pantofola d’oro. different class. Look them up.

  2. says: dominic

    they should make the studs shorter because when i had them and i did a roulette the ball always slipped away. everything else is really good though.

    I have had a pair of these for the last three years and they are great. They are a perfect blend between speed and durability and work well for ball control, especially when you are playing in wet conditions. Vapours don’t hold up well in these conditions but the Air Legends do!

    if you get vapours ur getting pure speed . there only a slight bit more heavier than the air ledgend. the vapours are great for kicking and running great all round boots but if in mudd conditions ur screwed. The air ledgends pretty much the same great boots stronger than the vpours and more of a rouner kicking surface and gret for speed. if u play football get vapours of u ply upfront and if you play rugby get the ir ledgends if u dont play wing. ve got the air ledgends there sweet and im guna et a pair of vapours get both i love them

    It’s a shame these shoes are now so hard to find. They’re very comfortable, stable and durable. (All they lack is proper arch support and heal padding – easily remedied with gel arch supports.)

  7. says: Sweden Keeper
