different angles of the Nike Tiempo Legend 10 Elite soccer shoes

Mark Griffin here with GCFC Training and this boot review is all about the brand new Nike Tiempo Legend 10 elite football boots.

Watch the video review here.

Throughout the history of Nike, there's always been a kangaroo leather boot available but soon that'll be a thing of the past.

The Nike Tiempo line is now switching over to a synthetic leather upper material for the foreseeable future. This material is called the Fly Touch Plus and it covers most of the upper area of the shoe.

Also, there's a Flyknit material instead of a tongue which is a personal favorite of mine it was there with the previous models as well but it makes you feel like your shoe is more secure on your foot. More about Nike FlyKnit technology.

Now before I really dive into the review I have to say I'm extremely picky about my shoes because my feet are made of glass so picking the correct shoe is very important for me.

When I first felt these on my feet, I was very nervous. I'm not gonna lie, I've been a kangaroo leather person forever now and I don't like changing either. But, I was actually shocked by how well they fit.

As soon as I put them on there was hardly any break in time, it felt like I have been wearing these for a few months. As far as the fit, I'd say they're pretty much true to size. I normally wear a 9.5 US men's for Nike shoes and that's what I have here.

The Nike Tiempo Legend 10 Elite retails at $230 dollars which is the standard price for the Tiempo line nowadays so no changes there. As for the look of the shoe, I'm all in on it!

Nike is known for being bold with their decisions, and I think they definitely did well here yet again. I love the guava colorway and it works well with the shape of the shoe not to mention the sole of the shoe.

Now, let's talk specifics
There's no padding like the previous kangaroo leather Tiempos but you'll be surprised by your touch with these new shoes. There's a dampening-like feel when receiving the ball that kind of reminds you of the previous Tiempo models.

Also, these boots do have the ACC all conditions control tag on them, enhancing the grip on the ball. And you really do feel that.

I think a lot of people associate the Tiempo models with being bulky and heavy, but that couldn't be further from the truth with this new model. The shoes mold to your feet extremely well and have a very thin layer in the upper, but that's not a bad thing. This upper material is very durable, and it's not going to cause you any issues.

The Stud Pattern
There's nothing crazy here; it's pretty much your generic Nike Tiempo pattern we've come to know and expect. My favorite part of the shoe, as I've said before, is the Flyknit technology that encompasses the top of the shoe. The heel is extremely comfortable and flexible, providing you with that secure feeling without compromising your movement.

How Comfortable Are They?
Now again, I was really nervous about trying these shoes again. I'm a die-hard kangaroo leather-type person, but when I was doing all these drills, I genuinely did not feel like I was wearing a brand-new pair of shoes.

Everything I did, whether it was the agility, the dribbling, or the shooting at the end, just felt so natural. I'm not sure if I was having a good day or not, but today was just one of those days where everything was working and I really did enjoy the shoe.

These Tiempo’s really did work for me, and again, I am very picky when it comes to that, so believe me when I say that these shoes are the truth. Nike is definitely going in the right direction with these.

I'm very excited to see what the future holds. We'll see you next time.
