Arda Turan Switches To Nike Tiempo Legend Boots

FC Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan is set to debut the Green Strike Nike Tiempo Legend V Soccer Cleats in Turkey's crucial Euro 2016 Qualifying match against Latvia on September 3.

Arda Turan hasn't played any competitive matches since he left Atlético Madrid this summer. The Turkey international has given up six months of his career as he's not able to play for Barça. The Catalan club is under transfer ban until January 2016.

Arda Switches From Nike Magista Opus to Nike Tiempo Legend

Arda Turan trained in the green Nike Tiempo Legend 5 Cleats for the first time on September 1. Interestingly, he laced up in the Hyper Turquoise Nike Magista Opus Boots on August 30, and had been wearing Nike Magista Opus Boots in all FC Barcelona training sessions.

Arda Turan is wearing a non-modified version of the green Nike Tiempo Legend Leather Boots. Made for ultimate control and comfort, the Nike Tiempo Legend V Football Boots feature a super soft Kangaroo Leather upper with Nike ACC (All Conditions Control). The Nike Magista Opus Boots are made from the leather-like synthetic NikeSkin.

In December 2015, Nike will reveal the next-generation Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Boots featuring a brand-new design without the traditional stitching, but an all-new xray skeleton in the upper. It will be interesting to see if Arda Turan will lace up in blackout Nike Tiempo Legend 2016 Boot Prototypes in the coming weeks after players such as Carvajal and Varane already trained in the next-gen Tiempo.

Surprise move. Watch out for Arda Turan's Boots in Turkey's Euro 2016 Qualifying matches against Latvia on September 3 and the Netherlands on September 6. He is set to wear the Nike Tiempo for the first time in his career after he previously had worn no other boots than the Nike Total 90 and Nike CTR in his career.
