Nike Tiempo Legend III Review-White/Volt/Black

14 Jul

Is there any better time to buy an old pair of cleats than right after the new version comes out? The Tiempo Legend III’s feature class unmatched by most boots and even its successor. The Tiempo Legend III features a whole Kangaroo leather upper, a sole plate featuring both injected and bladed studs, and is made by a brand with great football history. I have talked to many people who prefer the Legend III over the Legend IV. When the boot was launched over a year ago the Tiempo III held the place of the CTR 360 and was endorsed by the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Carlos Tevez, and is now still sponsored by Chiciarto!

Initial Impressions:

The Legend is one of those boots that you take about the box and the first thing you notice is the smell of the leather. What an addicting smell it was. I was stunned by the elegant simplicity of the Volt on White colorway. It was the closest Nike was going to get to a white-out colorway and it was beautiful. Those of you who do not take care of your boots may find the white leather very stressful, but it is absolutely brilliant by Nike.

Comfort:

The Legend has a long history of being one of the best leather boots in the world. I can the tell you the Legend III lives up to this history. There is simply no mistaking that Kangaroo leather is the best out there. I can promise you that they will fit for a long time to come, as the leather will stretch when needed, but do not worry about it over-stretching. This boot will offer fantastic feel on your foot and fits exactly how you want a classic boot to feel-snug yet soft.

Breaking In:

As I said, The Legend III offers everything in terms of comfort. You will never find a better boot except for maybe the Adipure IV when it comes to breaking in. You can very well wear these straight out of the box, although it would be better to initially wear them of some semi-soft ground. I wore them straight into a practice, and they never have given me blisters, except for on turf fields.

Durability and Performance:

You will find that durability is somewhere that this boot really shines. I have worn this boot every day for the last 3 months in all conditions, including snow. The only problems I have ever experienced with this boot in terms of durability is the leather tends to separate slightly from the sole plate after lots of use in wet conditions. To keep this boot in prime shape do not leave it in your bag or in your garage, bring it into your house, and fill it with newspaper until you have to use the boots again. Now when it comes to performance I still found this boot to be magnificent. The thing I loved about the boot was I never encountered slipping on any surface with these boots. They were outstanding compared to previous boots such as the Vapor VI.

Positives:

This boot is one of those substance over style kind of boots. While it may not fit those looking for a boot with the looks of a Formula 1 race car, it will offer comfort matched by very few boots. Nike have found a true classic with this boot, and I was sorely upset with the the new Tiempo Legend IV and it’s inclusion of Kanaga-lite.

Negatives:

I love this boot, but there are too simple negatives. The lace cover, and the separation of leather from sole. The lace cover can be solved by buying the Tiempo Legend IV or simply cutting it off at the seam. The separation of leather from the sole will not affect the performance of the boot at all, yet it can look slightly bad. To fix this simply find some hot glue, and glue it back together around every 2 weeks and let it dry.

  

Grade: A+
