Now we always knew these boots were going to cause waves when they were first teased on the feet of Virgil Van Dijk, Sergio Ramos and Joe Gomez who repped them during training at the end of last season. Judging from the hype when those pictures spread across social, Nike now actually releasing these to the public is going to cause even more disruption.
Yes, this is not your regular, safe pair of hands Tiempo. Far from it, Nike have chosen this Dazzle Camo design to be the designated first limited edition for the Legend 8. A look inspired by the designs used to disguise pre-production cars, to stop hide the angles, curves and features from rivals through distorted black and white patterns. You know Nike will put their own twist on things and have done so by taking the regular Tiempo logo and distorting the design, layering rows and rows of Tiempo branding to give this distinctive all over pattern you see here.
And – crucially, it is an all over pattern, wrapping under, over, all around the boot with only the flyknit tongue providing a break in the graphic. But even here we get the multi colour treatment, as reds, yellows, greens, blues, pinks and more are woven together for a knit rainbow.
This is definitely Nike keeping up the promise to take the Tiempo series in a new direction, and it’s a design you certainly wouldn’t associate with the traditional heritage, old school or classic player that was the Tiempo stereotype. No, the eighth generation Legend goes into beast mode and it’s great to see such a bold drop on a Tiempo.
If you are lucky enough to secure a pair, you'll also be able to enjoy the trippy boot bag that compliments the look, as well as a upgraded box that features the Dazzle Camo pattern on the outside and a dazzling mirrored application on the interior. We do love it when the whole package comes together.
Now, this crystal ‘15-year anniversary’ boots will, of course, be worn on pitch by Messi and contain all the defence-splitting tech you’d come to expect on the regular edition. That means you get the excellent Nemeziz from the combination widths and tensions of the woven tape from the upper.
The stud configuration is created to support Messi’s explosive acceleration and high-speed turns on firm natural ground surfaces and that’s the only soleplate this drop has. Both the 19.1 and 19.3 boots have this FG soleplate setup.
