Way back in April 2008, Footy Boots received a number of enquiries about the new Nike Super Ligera.
Six months on, the good news is that the release of the Super Ligera is imminent, and you should be able to get your hands on them from the back end of October or certainly, early November.
Never backwards at coming forwards, Nike’s take on the new boot is “Light on touch, heavy in class.” And indeed, the Nike Super Ligera boots, with a kangaroo upper and TPU outsole, are 25% lighter than the Tiempo Legend football boots.
However, don’t think that the durability of the Nike Tiempo Super Ligera will be in any way affected by their lightness.
Nike say nothing will be compromised in that area and have even given the boot a rubberised coating around the toe area to emphasise the point.
Still relying on the classic styling of old, the football boot offers a comfortable fit and excellent touch and feel.
The Super Ligera will be available in both hard ground and soft ground versions and is expected to retail at around 90 GBP.
