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.
Celebrating the 10th iteration of the Tiempo legend in stunning style, Nike have revolutionised the “Touch of Gold” edition on the first generation Tiempo to deliver the "Golden Touch" Tiempo X in the most premium of limited edition designs.
The limited edition Nike Tiempo Legend X football boots will be worn on pitch from the Quarter Finals stage of the 2023 Women's World Cup, but also by a selection of male players when the new season kicks off later this month.
Nike Tiempo Legend X Elite Golden Touch FG
Created for confident, positive play, the Tiempo Legend X is the sleekest, most attacking Tiempo yet. Wherever you find yourself on the pitch, the soft FlyTouch+ upper provides the comfort and close feel on the ball you need to stay calm and in control. We’re talking shimmies in your own six-yard box, passes under pressure in midfield, and perfect finesse shots up front. Composure stats maxed out. Its fully engineered design is softer than natural leather and features streamlined foam pods, smoothed down into the moulded lines of the boot to dampen your touch just the right amount. The material won’t overstretch and requires zero break-in time. Basically, you get all the benefits of leather with none of the downsides. 3D microdot touch zones amplify control, while ever-reliable ACC ensures your touch stays immaculate in all weather conditions. At the heel, an integrated Flyknit collar combines with interior padding to keep you locked in and minimise irritation. For all-round traction, the soleplate now features completely circular studs at the forefoot in addition to the blades at the toe and heel, boosting agility for fast, decisive transitions.
Boot Class = Elite
It’s undergone many revisions and redesigns since its creation, but in terms of looks, there’s a clear throughline from today’s Tiempos to the ones worn by so many stars in the 90s. If you like that old-school style of boot but also want to benefit from the latest tech, the Tiempo is ideal.
While the first Tiempo dates back to 1983, its modern heritage began in 2005 with the Air Legend. Ronaldinho was the main man when it came to endorsement, showing that the Tiempo was equally effective in the attacking third as at the back and in midfield.
Since then, we’ve had numbered generations of the Tiempo Legend at regular intervals, with incremental changes made over the years to ensure the iconic boot keeps pace with its rivals and continues to offer that winning combination of fit, feel, and touch. There have been signature editions for R10 and other Tiempo stalwarts such as Totti and Pirlo, along with a significant spinoff in the form of the purist’s favourite, the Premier.
So, is it a defender’s boot? Or a midfield maestro’s? What about strikers? Honestly, all of the above. Whichever position you play, you want what the Tiempo offers. There’s a reason it’s been around for so long: it’s one of the best boots ever made.
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.
Boots with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural, short-grass surfaces that are firm underfoot but may be slightly wet. Designed specifically for this playing surface, they offer acceleration, comfort, and enhanced traction, dispersing stud pressure evenly across the foot. FG soleplates are fixed (not removable) and are used worldwide; wetter countries tend to use them spring to autumn. FG boots are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction. Using FG boots on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
