Pique, Van Dijk & Co Train in Unique Camouflaged Next-Gen Nike Tiempo Legend 8 Boots

Update: Sergio Ramos has been spotted with the Nike Tiempo Legend 8 'Dazzle Camo' football boots in Spain training. We expect the boots to be launched soon, either this or next month. Ramos could wear the boots in Spain's EURO 2020 qualifiers match against Faeroe Islands.

Update: Gerard Pique has joined his Premier League colleagues and also trained in a pair of the camouflaged next-gen Nike Tiempo Legend 8 boots. Thanks to @remus1899.

Liverpool defenders Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were spotted wearing pretty unique boots. Taking into account everything, the disguised boots are next-gen Nike Tiempos, with the next generation of the silo set to drop this summer.

The upper of the cleats is disguised with a wavy black and white pattern that includes a distorted Tiempo writing - difficult to spot, but it's there. There's also a white outlined Swoosh and the fact that both van Dijk and Gomez rep the Tiempo line to prove that we're having a look at the next generation of the Tiempo, the Tiempo Legend VIII.

One of the first colorways of the Tiempo 8 was actually leaked a long time ago.

All in all, this is all reminiscent of how Puma used to introduce new generation of their boots with similarly camouflaged designs. Considering the efforts that have gone into this, we might see these boots on the pitch in an official ahead of the full release of the Tiempo Legend 8. Possibly even at the Camp Nou on Wednesday already.
