Thiago Silva Switches to Nike Tiempo Boots

No more Nike Magista Obra? Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva is set to debut the Anthracite and Volt Nike Tiempo Legend V Electro Flare Pack Boots in today's Champions League clash against Real Madrid after he laced up in Nike's modern heritage boot in yesterday's training session.



Update 21/11/15: Thiago Silva has finally completed the silo switch after he debuted the next-gen Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Boots in Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 clash against Lorient yesterday (thanks to @Footpack)


Update 04/11/15: Thiago Silva didn't debut the Nike Tiempo Legend Boots but returned to the Nike Magista Obra for the clash against Real Madrid.



Thiago Silva had been wearing the Nike Magista Obra Boots without interruption since the 2014 World Cup, while he previously laced up in the Nike CTR Football Boots. Before that, he had also worn the Nike Total 90 Boots and the Nike Tiempo Legend.

Unfortunately, there are only two pictures showing Thiago Silva during yesterday's ultimate training session ahead of the Real Madrid clash. However, it's very likely that the Brazil defender wears a non-modified version of the boots, even though only today's match will bring clarity (at least if he actually debuts the boots).


It's also quite interesting to note that he wore the old, light blue Nike Magista Obra Lightning Storm Pack Cleats in Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 preparations ahead of the match against Stade Rennais, while he returned to the latest colorway for the 90 minutes.


No more Dynamic Fit collar. We'll watch out for Thiago Silva's boots in today's Champions League clash against Real Madrid to see if he will complete the switch.
