From a Touch of Gold to the Golden Touch. Showcasing the evolution of an icon, Nike Tempo Legend X Elite Future Heritage FG football boots feature colours and details that nod to key moments in the history of the series. The gold-to-black fade mixes influences from two of R10’s favourite Air Legends, while the red collar tab links back to the Legend IV. A stylised

Created for confident, positive play, the Tempo Legend X is the sleekest, most attacking Tempo 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
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.
Nike’s longest-standing boot series, the Tempo has maintained its place at the top of the game for decades by providing unrivalled comfort and control of the ball.
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 Tempo is ideal.
While the first Tempo 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 Tempo was equally effective in the attacking third as at the back and in midfield.
Since then, we’ve had numbered generations of the Tempo Legend at regular intervals, with incremental changes made over the ears 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 Tempo 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 Tempo 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.
