Premium leather has always been the signature feature of Nike’s iconic Tiempo franchise. For the Tiempo Legend 8, the timeless leather exterior is combined with a highly modernized interior to deliver a technical beast of a boot.
Nike Sport Research Lab data indicates that Flyknit hugging a boot's arch makes a player feel more secure, so a new Flyknit Fit Tunnel was created for the Tiempo Legend 8 that provides a supportive, snug fit around the midfoot.
This is complemented by Quadfit mesh in the forefoot that stretches in four directions to accommodate any foot shape, while simultaneously preventing overstretching of the outer leather layer.
A stitchless quilted diamond pattern on the upper helps keep water and mud from seeping in, and avoids the tiny perforations to the leather that would occur in traditional stitching.
