The Complete? History of the Current-Gen Nike Tiempo Legend Boots

With the launch of the Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Boots just around the corner (Sergio Ramos laced up in the launch colorway of the next-gen Nike Tiempo Legend Boots on Saturday), we decided to take a look at all colorways and special editions of the Nike Tiempo Legend 5 Boots.

From the striking 'Desert Sand' and 'Atomic Orange' Nike Tiempo Legend V launch colorway over the two special Nike Tiempo editions for Totti and Ronaldinho to the Nike Tiempo Legend Electro Flare Pack Boots, Nike has not only released various colorways for the fifth generation of the Nike Tiempo Cleats but also created some special editions for the boots in the past two years. And while the Swoosh still hasn't launched the last colorway of the boots (Gold and Volt Nike Tiempo Legend V) yet, the next-gen Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Boot is already set for a release next month.

Nike Tiempo Legend Legend 6 Boots - Colorways

Here are all paint jobs of the Nike Tiempo 6 Nike has released so far.

While Nike kicked-off the boot game with the eye-catching 'Desert Sand' and 'Atomic Orange' boasting a half-and-half design, the Swoosh soon launched a classic black and white version of the Nike Tiempo Boots. In the following months, Nike launched a range of different Nike Tiempo Legend paint jobs. And whereas the fourth colorway combined the rather classic colors red and white, all upcoming color schemes boasted at least one garish color.

Unfortunately, the probably last colorway of the Nike Tiempo Legend VI Boots is no exception. Combining the classy color gold with Nike's trademark color Volt, the last Nike Tiempo Legend V Boot is anything but an instant classic.

Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Boots - Special Editions.

This is the Nike Tiempo Legend XX 20 Years Anniversary Boot.

To honor the introduction of the original Nike Tiempo Boot in 1994, Nike released the special Nike Tiempo Nike Tiempo Legend XX 20 Years Anniversary Boot. Combining a white upper with a silver Swoosh and black applications, the first special edition of the Nike Tiempo Legend V Cleat was limited to 500 pairs worldwide, delivered together with a bold Tiempo Sneaker and retailed therefore at an outrageous price of 350 Euro (300 GBP).

After that things calmed down as Nike put the focus on the revolutionary Nike Magista Obra and Nike Mercurial Superfly Boots featuring a knitted upper and an all-new Dynamic Fit collar. It should take more than a year until Nike launched the next special edition of the Nike Tiempo. In February 2015, Nike revealed a classy black and silver version of the Nike Tiempo Boots to honor AS Roma legend Francesco Totti. And while the boots not only introduced a classy color scheme, the Nike Tiempo Legend Premium Totti Boots also brought back Totti's beloved tongue to the silo. But some months later, Nike should launch the most popular edition of the Nike Tiempo Legend V Boots.

The Nike Tiempo Legend Touch of Gold Boots honored Brazilian legend Ronaldinho with a classy white and golden design. And even though the boots were limited to 3,000 pairs globally, they were sold out at all retailers within minutes.

However, as it's still possible that Nike will release a special edition of the Nike Tiempo Legend V Boots to say goodbye to the fifth generation, only time will tell if this has been already the complete history of the Nike Tiempo Legend.
