The Nike Tiempo Legend 6, just like the past 5 versions have all been known for their premium leather build. Add in the fact that it also comes with innovative and exceptional craftsmanship, you have yourself a very good looking shoe.
The new design on the Nike Tiempo Legend 6 opts to replace the usual quilted leather toebox in favor of a cushioned internal cage. The nice thing about the change is that it will still provide the same touch attributes as quilting, and it will also hold its shape and grooves the leather without the need for additional stitching that we’re used to seeing on the old quilted construction.
Nike Football Designer Vianney de Montgolfier of the change:
Tiempo players start the attack. We prioritize the touch and precision they depend on. With Tiempo Legend 6, we challenged ourselves to work with legendary materials in a new way. With this new construction, Tiempo Legend 6 delivers the feel of quilting, but without compromising the leather. The foam backer has been vacuum pressed to the leather to ensure a soft, seamless construction. By eliminating quilting, we reduce the possibility of mud or water seeping in through the quilt lines, as that can harden the leather.
Another change on the boot lies in the modernized tongue which now seen an affixed one-piece construction integrated with the laces, while the internal mid-foot cage, molded external heel counter and microfiber sock liner helps keep the foot in place. The sock liner will even feature traction on the underside that aligns with silicon pods on the base of the boot itself. Lastly, the medial side of the boot has been raised slightly so that it can align with the shape of the ankle.
Another major change for the new Tiempo is a modernized tongue. Retaining the traditional silhouette of the original, the new tongue now sees an affixed one-piece solution that’s integrated with the laces while an internal mid-foot cage, molded external heel counter and microfiber sock liner help keep the foot in place. The sock liner even features traction on the underside that aligns with silicon pods on the base of the boot itself — a part of the boot’s innovative plate-to-sockliner, sockliner-to-sock traction system. Finally, the medial side of the boot his been raised slightly so as to align with the anatomy of the ankle. Set to drop on the Nike Football App November 29th a few days before dropping at retailers worldwide on December 1.
