Nike Made in Italy Tiempo Boots Released

Confirming previous leaks, Nike today released something very special for all boot connoisseurs - a Tiempo Legend soccer cleat made in Italy.

The special Tiempo Legend 9 football shoes from Nike are made in Montebelluna, Italy. It is the factory in which the cleats for Nike's athletes are being made since 1996.

There have been a few public releases made in Italy like the Tech Craft Pack but none in the past few years. The last Montebelluna release was the Nike Hypervenom 3 GX in 2017.

Indeed, the tech and colorway is inspired by the Nike Tiempo Legend boots of 2006, worn by Andrea Pirlo in the 2006 World Cup triumph.

Tech-wise, the Nike Tiempo Legend IX 'White/Game Royal/Metallic Silver' are a modern remake with elements of the 2006 Nike Air Zoom Tiempo 2 football boots. They combine a classic alegria leather upper with the modern outsole of the Tiempo Legend 9 soccer boots.

The chrome plate is a modern twist. The stitching and Swoosh logo also nod to the Air Tiempo Legend.
