This week in our weekly leaked images coloumn, Jordon has loads of new cleats from Nike. Plus the upcoming Tiempo with what looks like flywire technology.
Now in it’s tenth colourway, the Total 90 series has enjoyed lots of success. It’s not hard to see why either, with the boots being modelled by global superstars like Wayne Rooney and Fernando Torres. This time, Nike have gone for a much more subtle colourway. It also looks to be in leather, which is hugely favoured by Torres and is a sure sign of what the Spaniard is going to be wearing very soon.
As noted in our last ‘leaked images’ article, the Tiempo’s aren’t exactly the most popular boot in the football world at the moment. We don’t think this next colourway is going to attract many other people either. Despite many people complaining that most of the Tiempo colourways look the same (it’s probably true), the yellow really doesn’t suit the Tiempos. If anything, I think that this new colourway will probably put more people off the Tiempo range. Nike really need something really different to attract people to the Tiempo range.
Which is why Nike have made a potential genius stroke. The picture below is of the upcoming Tiempo IV series. Even though it may be a little hard to see it in the picture, the flywire technology is evident in the picture. Compare it to the Tiempo above, it definitely looks like there is flywire techology within the new Tiempo range. Flywire technology has been made famous by the Mercurial range of football boots. First released around a year ago in the first reincarnation on the Superfly, it claims to give support and “mirrors the shape of the boot to give a better fit”.
Let’s face it. The flywire technology would heavily reduce the weight of the boot and the Tiempo range is well-known for the softness of the leather. Combine this with the carbon fiber sole plate, and Nike could be onto a winner here. This would mean some needed competition for the leather Adizero range which is taking the world by storm. This is only a prototype model. We know of at least two more colourways for the current Tiempo III series (come back midweek for the next colourway). So this Tiempo IV series could be a little while away. SER will keep you informed when we hear more about this exciting new boot from the American company.
That’s it for this week’s coloumn. Come back midweek for a special leaked images where Jordon shows us some Puma colourways and also another Tiempo III colourway. However, next Saturday, Jordon has all the specs on the upcoming Predator Kinetic series, the pictures of which were revealed to us this week by James.
