Limited Edition Nike Tiempo Legend Pirlo Boots Released

Nike today released a special edition of the Nike Tiempo Legend 6 football boots for Andrea Pirlo. Celebrating Andrea Pirlo's obsession for winemaking, the limited edition Tiempo Pirlo soccer cleats boast a classy design in Merlot, Black and Cork.

If there is one thing Italian legend Andrea Pirlo obsesses as much as football, it's winemaking. Pirlo's history with wine goes back to his childhood in Flero, where he spent a lot of time harvesting grapes at local vineyards. His passion for fine wine led Pirlo and his family to open a winery called Pratum Coller. To celebrate Pirlo's dual careers as a footballer and winemaker, Nike Football has crafted a limited edition Tiempo Pirlo.

Nike Tiempo Legend 6 SE Pirlo Edition Merlot / Sail / Metallic Vivid Gold

This is the brand-new Andrea Pirlo Tiempo boot.

Combining the main color Merlot with Sail and Metallic Vivid Gold, the Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Special Edition soccer boots feature a premium Alegria leather upper in a merlot colorway inspired by the juice of the grape. Similar to Pratum Coller's logo, four gold stars appear on the boot's heel counter and plate to honor Italy's World Cup titles. The Italian flag is also featured on the lace aglet.

As a nod to Tiempo's heritage and the process of producing wine, Aged Since '94 appears in metallic gold on a genuine cork sockliner and also on the polka dot shoebox of the Tiempo Legend Pirlo edition.

Limited editions of the Nike Tiempo Pirlo will be available from September 19. The boots, which are packaged similar to a bottle of wine and include an additional performance sockliner, will be also available as high-end indoor, turf and street version (Nike TiempoX Proximo).
