Nike Tiempo Legend V Gets Classic Black / White / Silver Colourway

Nike Tiempo Legend V - Black / White / Silver

Having set Tiempo fans collective pulses racing yesterday, Nike are further endearing themselves to fans of their most storied football boots with a truly classic colourway for the Nike Tiempo Legend V – Black / White / Silver.

Harkening back to the Tiempo that was so ubiquitous on the pitches of the USA in 1994, colourways don’t get much simpler than onthis new Tiempo Legend V.

A classic black lateral side is punctuated by the white Nike swoosh, offering up the classic branding that was made famous by Cantona, Wright, Maldini and Romario in that most seminal of decades.

The instep inverts the pattern, with the medial quarter in white K-Leather, whilst the Nike branding is in black.

For a classic boot, the Nike Tiempo Legend V' sure does jam in a lot of technology. Thankfully, rather than ‘shotshields’ or Flywire, all these innovations are designed to keep your foot dry and comfortable whilst still retaining that touch and lightness that the Tiempo has always made its hallmark.

Nike have employed the same X1.1 last as the Nike Hypervenom to give the Tiempo a more anatomical and form-fitting shape than previous entries into the series.

The materials, as mentioned, are a one-two combo of K-Leather and KangaLite. The forefoot vamp is ACC-augmented K-leather with quilted stitching for optimal shape and phenomenal touch.

Medial quarter duties are once again passed on to Nike's KangaLite material to allow for a lighter, more durable boot – and under that is a layer of hydrophobic mesh that makes up part of Nike’ Hypershield system.

Available now from the store, let us know what you think of the Nike Tiempo Legend V' – Black / White / Silver' on the boot-o-meter, now!
