Nike Tiempo Legend

Fact:We live in a world where Orange is the new Black and classics are constantly being remade, refreshed, refined, refurbished and occasionally, remixed. The Nike Tiempo Legend is no exception, rather more of a rule in consistency. In life there's three things you can count on: Death, Taxes, & the Nike Tiempo Legend giving you a superior touch only premium leather boots can. Speaking of a superior touch, the "Hypershield" outer layer reduces water absorption AND improves the shoe's ability to dry while All Conditions Control (ACC) technology provides optimal ball control in wet and dry conditions.

    • Frequently Asked

      • Q: What's the weight difference between the Tiempo V & VI?
        A: The Tiempo Legend VI in a size 9.5 US tips the scales at 8.70 oz which is about .45oz heavier than its predecessor. This also makes it the heaviest cleat in Nike's 4 main silos but some would argue it's also the most comfy.
      • Q: What's the sizing like for the Tiempo Legend VI?
        A: It would be best to go up a 1/2 size. Traditionally, Nike's cleats run a 1/2 size small... We're not sure why they do but it's certainly working out for them.
      • Q: How does the Hypershield layer effect the feel of the Tiempo Legend VI?
        A: We've found that the Tiempo Legend VI's Hypershield support cage doesn't have an impact on how the cleat feels while playing. The cleat also gets softer the more it's worn which means it's better fitting and more responsive without compromising on how it feels.

Tech Specs


      Is the result of combining Kangaroo Leather & ACC technology. It’s simple, KL+ACC = consistent & superior ball control in both wet and dry conditions. Also, the importance of the Hypershield outer layer can’t be overstated since it reduces water absorption and improves the cleat’s ability to dry.


      Is not only what Nike set out to do but is what they accomplished. The Legend utilizes a flexible TPU plate that moves with the foot while providing stability, traction AND comfort. The boot also incorporates dual-density, direct- inject conical AND bladed studs that enhance traction AND underfoot ball control.

    • SNUG FIT

      SNUG FIT
      Is what you get when you wear the Tiempo Legend. They’re not only snug they’re borderline inappropriately comfy. The supple kangaroo leather upper is supported by a new internal midfoot cage that provides unparalleled lockdown while the new interior silicone dot grid grips the insole and prevents slipping. It’s truly an amazing.

The History

  • 1984 – Tiempo D
  • 1984 – Tiempo D

    It's said that "Hero's get remembered but Legends never die." Nike quietly entered the football boots market in the 80's with the release of the Nike Tiempo D. The original stud configuration was basic but the quality of the leather would lay the groundwork for generations of Tiempos to come.

  • 1994 – Tiempo Premier M
  • 1994 – Tiempo Premier M

    First launched at the 1994 World Cup in the USA , the Tiempo Premier M was worn by such stars as Brazil's Romario & Italy's Paolo Maldini. Both stars were named to the 1994 World Cup All-star team. Romario also won the Golden Ball, a Gold medal and scored 5 goals during the tournament. The premium leather and enhanced stud configuration truly made this Tiempo the stuff of legends.

  • 2010 – Tiempo Legend III
  • 2010 – Tiempo Legend III

    -Made entirely of K-Leather

  • 2011 – Tiempo Legend IV
  • 2011 – Tiempo Legend IV

    -Introduced an ‘Elite’ level boot at the time of the launch (rather than part way through the boots, lifespan, as with the Legend III).

    -Updates included: synthetic ‘KangaLite’ leather midfoot and heel to improve stability and the removal of the classic Tiempo tongue

    -Elite version featured Flywire similar to that on the Superfly III, full Carbon Fiber-chassis and ‘Premium’ Kangaroo Leather.

  • 2013 – Tiempo Legend V
  • 2013 – Tiempo Legend V

    -0.8 oz lighter than its predecessor. Included Nike’s ACC and Hypershield technologies, designed to reduce water uptake, a common problem with natural leather boots.

    -The heel and forefoot studs are wider for more ground contact and enhanced stability. The conical studs at the forefoot offer traction during changes of direction.

    -Absorbs 73% less water compared to Legend IV, the material dries 24% faster, and the upper is also 88% stronger than that of the Tiempo Legend IV.

    -Takes longer to break in due to new stitching which has been engineered to hold the boots shape better and for longer to ensure that it doesn’t overstretch.

    -Designers used a new anatomical foot last to deliver an incredible fit, bringing the foot closer to the ball and lower to the ground. They then developed an upper package that worked with the last to provide a longer lasting snug fit.

    -The upper is made with 2 layers of materials – waterproof k-leather and low wicking mesh. This upper package gives reduced water absorption and an increased rate of drying. They reduced the layers of upper materials by 50%, allowing them to get the foot closer to the ball and enabling the players to have an exceptional touch and feel on the ball.

  • 2015 – Tiempo Legend VI

    Late in 2013 we were treated to a worthy successor of the beloved Tiempo Legend IV, when the V made its debut. Two years down the line, we have another newcomer to welcome.

    Nike Tiempo Legend VI Review

    I mean, come on; it’s the next Nike Tiempo Legend, so of course I was excited to get these in hand! Once I opened the box and felt the leather and the upper, I thought, "These feel awesome, but odd at the same time." A leather boot with an internal support cage sounds weird but I was ready to see how the boots performed during testing. [ Read more... ]
