First-Ever Flyknit Tiempo - Nike Tiempo Legend VII Launched

Nike just officially launched the Tiempo Legend VII, the first football boot in the history of the silo to feature Flyknit. Reducing weight by 22%, the brand-new Nike Tiempo Legend 7 will go on sale July 10th.

Nike Tiempo Legend VII - Black / Laser Orange / White

This is the first Nike Tiempo Legend VII boot.

In line with the rest of Nike's 'Lock in, Let Loose' collection, the very first Nike Tiempo Legend VII boots are split between black at the front and orange in the rear, connected through a soft fade along the stitching in the midfoot area. Enormous Swooshes, white with black outlines, that start at the lather-Flyknit border dominate the inside and outside rear of the Nike Tiempo Legend VII cleats.

Last but not least, the lower part of the studs of the black and orange Nike Tiempo Legend 7 is 'Volt' - the same as the Flywire strings of which only the topmost part can be seen towards the collar.

Tech-wise, the new Nike Tiempo Legend VII football boots bring very interesting new things to the table. For the first time in Tiempo history, the new Nike Tiempo 2017 soccer cleat features Flyknit constructed heel and midfoot with Flywire cables for increased breathability, stretch, lockdown and support. The touch area of the boot is again made of premium Kangaroo leather.

On top of that, lateral ridges cover most of the upper of the Nike Tiempo Legend VII, both for stability and for an improved touch of the ball. Aiming at providing a softer touch and better ball control, these ridges were created by applying the k-leather upper on top of a foam skeleton, backed by a layer of nylon. This particular construction also helps prevent overstretching of the leather toebox.

The sole plate and stud configuration of the black and orange Nike Tiempo Legend 7 2017-18 boots were also updated in comparison to the predecessor. The new Hyperstability plate is lighter than the previous plate, and the inner area of the boot comes with NikeGrip technology for a more closer fit.

  • Flyknit constructed heel and tongue add breathability and support

  • NIKEGRIP technology to help prevent your foot from sliding inside the boot

The black and orange Nike Tiempo Legend 7 2017-2018 soccer boots will be released on July 10. They retail at 230 USD (190 GBP, 230 Euro), a heavy increase over the previous generation. In addition to the colorway in this article, the Nike Tiempo Legend VII boots will also be released in a more traditional, black-and-white look at the same time.

Continuing the legacy of the Tiempo, the likes of Jerome Boateng, Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos will switch to the new Nike Tiempo Legend VII cleats for the start of preseason.
