A while ago, the state of California legislature passed a law that rendered the import of footwear made out of kangaroo leather illegal.

To circumvent this and allow California Swoosh heads to get their hands on the Tiempo Legend, Nike has launched a brand-new version of the Tiempo Legend 7 Elite, with the kangaroo leather being replaced by its calf equivalent.

This creates a very similar boot that is legal to buy in California. Based on the 'Stealth Ops' colorway, the Nike Tiempo Legend 7 calf leather boots are available to buy at, the USA's largest football retailer, right now.
