Nike Tiempo Legend 7 Football Boots

Nike Tiempo boots, much like the professional players who wear them, have a reputation for making the exceptional look easy.

The result is a boot not only lighter than its predecessor, but also better fitting and more comfortable.

To help prevent overstretching of the leather toebox, Nike developed Fit-Mesh makes its debut inside the Tiempo Legend 7.

“Fit-Mesh is woven to act like a Chinese finger trap. The more pressure you apply, the tighter it holds. It is a floating lining attached to the raised biteline of the boot, not the leather. It helps contain your foot so the leather doesn’t have to.” – Vianney de Montgolfier, Nike Football Designer


With Fit-Mesh providing stability, Nike leveraged a soft, seamless leather throughout the forefoot. The leather is fused with a thin foam that provides the touch and control benefits of quilting without perforation.

Tiempo Legend 7 also marks the debut of the Nike Hyperstability plate, which is designed for multi-directional movements and helped shave 60 grams off the boot.

“Improving upon a beloved boot was an exciting challenge. The new innovations enhance and compliment the features players already love while significantly reducing the weight of the boot.”


The plate features a mixture of jagged conical studs, chevrons, and blades.
