Nike Tiempo Legend X Academy TF - Black/Chrome/Hyper Royal
Created for confident, positive play, the Tiempo Legend X is the sleekest, most attacking Tiempo yet. Wherever you find yourself on the field, the soft FlyTouch Lite 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 molded lines of the shoe 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 a microfibre lining combines with interior padding at the heel to keep you locked in and minimize irritation. A springy, cushioning midsole provides impact absorption as you shift through the gears, with aggressive traction enabling quick changes of direction and helping you accelerate away.
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.

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.
Turf, a synthetic-grass surface, usually applies to Astro Turf (sand or water-based). Playing on turf surfaces requires less cleat penetration, which is similar to the needs of a hard ground sole plate, and features a solid rubber outsole with numerous, small multidirectional lugs.
Turf cleats are also appropriate for play on very dry natural surfaces, hard dirt pitches or gravel.
