To be ahead of the rest of the soccer world on cleat news, you have to have contacts or sources, and know things before anyone else does. The SER team has received ‘leaked’ info, about the next cleat up in Nike’s busy cleat season, which is expected to see the Mercurial Vapors V and Superfly release. The Nike Tiempo Legend III. From the latest reports, the cleat’s due for release on July 1st in two different colorways, the Black/White/Volt and White/Maroon colorways. The cleat will be endorsed by Cesc Fabregas, Carlos Tevez, and Joe Cole, which is ironic, because two of those three are out for the remainder of the season with injuries. We have heard though that the cleat will probably sell for $150 at retail price.
We do not have enough information about the new cleat to do a proper preview on it, but here are the Specs you should plan to see on the debut of the cleat.
Upper: All over Kangaroo leather for superior comfort and ball feel. Updated pattern details for a dependable performance fit.
Midsole: High performance, molded sockliner with Poron cushioning for great in-shoe comfort and fit.
Soleplate: Lightweight TPU with glass fiber shank, forefoot flex grooves and combination conical/bladed studs for optimal traction and pressure dispersion.
Although the cleat’s details are being held close to the chest so far by Nike, you should look to see many similarities between the Tiempo Legend III and its predecessor, the Nike Air Legend II, so here are the Air Legend II’s details:
