Nike Tiempo Legend IX Elite FG - Black/Metallic Dark Grey/Anthracite
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.
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 GT. Or, if you prefer a classic cleat, the more traditional Tiempo and Premier are your go-to options.
Nike offer cleats for all types of surface and levels of play, including their exclusive Anti-Clog editions with soleplates designed specifically for wet, muddy pitches.
Cleat Class - Elite
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 cleats, 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.
Cleats with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural short-grass surfaces that is 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 cleats are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction.
FG cleats used on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
