The ‘old man’ of Nike’s current stable of boots, the Tiempo Legend III gets a classy send off in what may well be the final colourway of these much loved football boots.

Team Red/Metallic Platinum/Deep Burgundy may well be the longest ever colourway name we’ve ever come across, which seems fitting for Nike’s longest running football boots – and it’s also one of the nicest we’ve seen on Nike’s classically styled cleats.

‘Unique’ is definitely one of the words we’d use to describe them (though maybe not the same way we’d describe the PowerCat Tokyo as ‘Unique!’) as there’s very few football boots on the market that could pull off an all-red colourway such as this!

Like the Oxblood Speciali that was released early last year, there’s something about this type of Red that really shows off the quality of the K-Leather used on some top-range football boots.

And the Metallic Platinum shows off some of the neat design touches that go into the Tiempo Legend III, like the piping on the heel counter, trim on the tongue and the ‘Est. 1984’ text on the toe-end of the sole!

You don’t get many all red football boots for sale – but when you do they tend to be a hit (like Nike’s Challenge Red Laser III’s from last year), and we reckon they’ll be a hit with the likes of Ronaldinho, Joe Cole, Pirlo and Park Ji-Sung following their release

These new football boots are part of Nike’s Summer ’11 range and will land in stores on April 1st, with pre-orders starting this week!

All in all, we think this is another solid Tiempo Legend IIII colourway from Nike – but what do you think?

    definitely resembling the earlier oxblood speciali 🙂

    @Sir Prance Alot: the red supersonic wave, on the other hand, IMHO are on the same league with red adipures. you know, the classy but sporty, challenging red.

    reminds me a lot of the old total 90 supremacies in red/silver. but besides that point, looks like a fantastic send off for the Tiempo range.

    he’s back with Nike (although not officially).. earlier this season and last season, Totti mostly wearing blackout Predator.

    Sexy colour, but why do you make it sound like this will be the last of these cleats……are they discontinuing ???

    I would usually agree with that darker red not going with the Man U jersey but if I remember correctly the T90 Supremacy from 2006 was a similar color and it went real well with their kit.
