News; Nike Tiempo Legend "Touch of Gold" Football Boots

Published: Sunday 06 September, 2015


Nike have confirmed that they will release a limited-edition Tiempo Legend "Touch of Gold" boot to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Ronaldinho's famous "crossbar" YouTube video.


 


Only 3,000 pairs of the predominantly white boot have been made by the manufacturer, and each will be individually numbered on the heel. The Tiempo Legend V “Touch of Gold” draws inspiration from the classic Nike Air Legend Tiempo R10, Ronaldinho’s signature boot, which was released in 2005 via “Crossbar,” the first YouTube video to garner a million views.


 


Much like the original, Tiempo "Touch of Gold" features an all-white upper with exquisite golden accents and branding that honour its signature athlete. The new version includes a gradient treatment on the sole plate, transitioning from a clean white forefoot to a golden heel. Ronaldinho’s name spreads across both sole plates in the forefoot and his signature R10 logo appears on the classic Tiempo tongue.


 


10 years ago, Nike released a YouTube video that ended up being the first one to hit 1 million views. For those of you too young to realize this, that was unheard of then and thus, the new age brands started turning more and more to video. All those cool Nike ads you saw for the World Cup last summer are only made possible by the groundbreaking Ronaldinho video. The boots feature an all-white base on the upper and appears to be crafted a lot like a standard Tiempo Legend V. Although the official tech specs have not been released yet, you can expect the leather on this upper to be a similar type of Algeria leather like the one found on the Totti-exclusive Legend. A classic fold-over tongue featuring his famous 10R logo is an awesome feature to really bring back even more nostalgia for the boots.


 


The stitches on the “Touch of Gold” Tiempo are gold to sprinkle in even more class to this incredible looking cleat. The Nike Swoosh is a very shiny gold and it is a similar look as with the Totti Legend V, but this time with gold. The soleplate features the standard style Legend V studs that many claim as one of the best stud patterns on the market. The soleplate may be the most spectacular part of this limited edition boot. At the heel, it is a solid gold plate but as we go up, we start to fade into white in the toe box and written under the soleplate is “Ronaldinho 10”.


 


This is an early candidate for my favorite colorway of the year for when our year-end Booties awards come out at the end of the year. If you want a pair you’re going to have to be fast as Nike have only made 3,000 available for the public to purchase worldwide. Your best bet is probably going to be the Nike Football App. These limited edition cleats drop in only 8 days on September 2nd at 8 AM central time. If you want a pair, I highly suggest tucking in early say about 8-9, wake up around 7 AM, take a quick shower, have a nice breakfast, and the wait by your computer for those bad boys to come available. Or if you’re like me, staying up all night seems to be the best option.
