White / Red Nike Tiempo Legend VI 2016 Women's Boots Released
Nike this week released more images of the first-ever Nike Tiempo Legend VI women's boot colorway, part of the new 2016 Women's Football Boots Collection. The next-gen Nike Tiempo Legend 6 Women's Boot is presented by U.S. Women's National Team defender Julie Johnston, who burst onto the global soccer scene in Fall 2014 during the Algarve Cup in Portugal.
"My family has played a huge role in my soccer career. Growing up, almost every memory, vacation, whatever it was, was somehow centered on soccer," she remembers. "They've been on this journey with me from day one when I laced up my first pair of cleats."
Those cleats, incidentally, were Nike Tiempos. The silhouette has been on Johnston's feet since the age of three. "I've worn Nike Tiempo since I was able to choose my own cleats," she declares. "From then on, I've been hooked." Johnston also wore the cleats during her memorable performance last summer in Canada, where the shrewd defender cemented her tenacious reputation, claiming a winner's medal in the team's victory.
Julie Johnston will wear the cleats during the USWNT's next game on February 10th versus Costa Rica in Frisco, Texas.
Nike Tiempo Legend IV Women's - White / Bright Crimson / Black
This is the first Nike Tiempo Legend VI Women's cleat.
Based on the already iconic silhouette of the Nike Tiempo Legend VI, the White / Bright Crimson Nike Women's Tiempo Legend 6 2016 boots feature a clean white upper. It is accentuated with black, used for the sockliner, laces and tongue, and striking red, used for the sole plate and the heel counter.
Unveiled by Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng in early December 2015, the Nike Tiempo Legend 6 aims to take Nike's supreme football boot to another level. It boasts a premium k-leather upper, while an all-new xray internal skeleton has been used for the first time, allowing Nike to reduce stitching in the forefoot area.
The white / red Nike Tiempo Legend VI 2016 boots are available from today in women's sizes up to US 13 (EU 43), retailing at US $210.
