Time Flies in the Lightest Tiempo Yet!

The Entirely re-worked Tiempo 9 has been tooled for versatility. The stigma that Tiempo’s are made for more defensive minded players has been completely destroyed because of the rapid new Tiempo. The best part is that you still get that luxurious touch that the Tiempo has always been known for. This Tiempo gives off more ‘Ronaldinho hitting the crossbar repeatedly’ vibes than anything else with tech built-in to improve your production on the pitch regardless of position on the field.

Massive Upgrades

Nike has upgraded the Tiempo to improve the performance of every player that laces them up regardless of where they play.

The first major upgrade is the weight alone. Nike has created the lightest Tiempo yet by adding perforation to the leather in low touch areas as well as implementing a mesh tongue for optimal breathability which is something we are not used to seeing in a leather cleat. These features alone should be enough to make you want to give the new Tiempo a try, but that’s not where the improvements stop. The soleplate has taken things to the next level with weight being cut in the middle of the sole with a cool bubble effect with Tiempo branding.

Touch of Class

The Tiempo DNA has never changed. Touch is always the key component to the Tiempo line and that is exactly what you get with the new Tiempo. That aspect is made clear by foam-filled pods (the old CTR has entered the chat) on the upper.

These pods deliver only the most sublime of touches in high-impact areas of the shoe. There is also added texture to the pods so you will feel like Merlin or something with spell-binding control over the ball. Get ready to see more creative players in the Tiempo 9 especially with Nike running their “Play Free” campaign that means there are no rules anymore to how you can play in the Tiempo. The only downside to the new look Tiempo is the lack of ACC coating because of the perforations in the K-leather upper. All Conditions Control will continue to be on the Merc and GT. It is certainly not as big of a deal with leather cleats in general, but especially with all the new improvements on the Tiempo 9.
