Nike Tiempo Legend IX Elite SG-Pro Anti-Clog

Attack with poise and precision wearing Nike Tiempo Legend IX Elite SG-Pro Anti-Clog football boots in Team Red/White/Mystic Hibiscus, featuring a lightweight design that’s built for fast, accurate play.
Equipped with a streamlined upper and a re-engineered soleplate, the Tiempo Legend IX Elite is one of the lightest Tiempos ever.

Its refined construction focuses on touch and technique, with foam pods under the plush K-leather upper combining with stitchless texturing to provide just the right amount of cushioning for accurate dribbling and ball striking.

The next-level comfort you expect from the Tiempo is further enhanced thanks to an adaptive mesh tongue, while the significantly lighter soleplate gives a more agile feel as you make quick cuts and turns.

For stability, ever-reliable NikeGrip technology on the insole keeps your foot securely in place so you’re always in control.

Boot Class = Elite

The best of the best. Elite football boots are the boots professional players wear on-pitch, made using the highest quality materials and featuring the latest technologies and innovations. The premium option for players who demand the best possible performance from their boots.

Anti-Clog Football Boots

Anti-Clog football boots are a newer innovation designed to resist mud and maintain optimal performance in wet, muddy conditions often found on natural grass pitches. Traditional boots can become clogged with mud, which weighs down the player and reduces traction. Anti-Clog boots feature a specially treated soleplate that prevents mud from sticking to it. When exposed to water, the treatment creates a lubricious layer, stopping the mud from clogging the studs. This technology keeps the boots lighter and maintains better grip during play in difficult conditions, improving player performance and reducing the risk of injuries.

Soft Ground Football Boots

Soft Ground (SG) football boots are designed for use on wet and muddy natural grass pitches where extra grip is necessary. These boots are characterized by fewer studs on the outsole, which are longer and usually removable. The long, often metal, studs penetrate deep into soft ground, providing excellent traction and reducing slippage. SG boots often feature a mix of metal and plastic studs in a 6-stud or 8-stud configuration. It's important to remember that these boots are specific to soft ground conditions; using them on hard ground can lead to discomfort and increased risk of injury.


Nike’s mission is “to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world”. For decades, their boots have done exactly that, being seen on the feet of amateur and professional players alike, all around the globe.

Starting with “The Nike” back in 1970, the Swoosh’s designs have always led the way when it comes to combining style and performance.

Their modern range includes the ever-popular Mercurial for speed, as worn by the legend that is Cristiano Ronaldo, along with the touch-focused Phantom. Or, if you prefer a classic boot, the more traditional Tiempo and Premier are your go-to options.

Nike offer boots for all types of surface and levels of play, including their exclusive Anti-Clog editions with soleplates designed specifically for wet, muddy pitches.

Ground Type Guide

Selecting the correct sole plate for the surface you are playing on is crucial, not only for the performance and longevity of your football boots, but also to avoid the risk of injury.

Using an outsole that isn't designed specifically for the surface on which you are playing may cause premature wear and/or damage that will not be deemed as a fault of manufacture and will prevent the retailer accepting them for a refund or exchange.

Soft Ground

Soft Ground is used to describe natural grass surfaces that are wet and muddy and require the most aggressive traction. Boots made for soft ground (SG) often have removable, replaceable screw-in studs and typically come in a six-stud configuration (4 at the forefoot, 2 slightly longer at the heel).

Soft Ground boots may need their studs tightening before first use. Always make sure your studs are secure before you step out on the pitch.
