Legends never die. Nike have unveiled an Andrea Pirlo rendition of the mythic Tiempo Legend cleats to celebrate the Italian’s career and passion for wine. Pirlo spent a lot of time harvesting grapes during his childhood in Flero, and ultimately open a winery called Pratum Coller.
The Tiempo’s upper feature Alegria leather painted in merlot to reflect Pirlo’s winemaking skills, while white and black add a classy touch. Four golden stars representing Italy’s FIFA World Cup titles are placed on the heel and soleplate; the lace aglet features the Italian flag.
A geniune cork sockliner features the phrase ‘Aged Since ’94’ as a nod to the Nike Tiempo heritage and the process of making wine. An additional performance sockliner will be included for those who desire to test these shoes on the field.
Limited edition Nike Tiempo Pirlo soccer cleats go on sale on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at World Soccer Shop. Make sure you don’t miss out on this classic.
