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.
Players: Cesc Fabregas, Carlos Tevez, Joe Cole, Andrea Pirlo
