With the spring soccer season just around the corner, Nike are releasing great new cleats and color schemes that are sure to impress players everywhere. One of these great new cleats is the Nike Tiempo Legend firm ground cleat. The Legend still remains one of the most comfortable cleats that Nike produces and the new color scheme helps make these look great as well.
This cleat is primarily white with a green swoosh as well as green on the heel to add some color. The upper is made of ultra-soft kangaroo leather to give a great touch on the ball, while maintaining great comfort on your foot. The upper also features water-resistant Kanga-Lite to keep you dry and helping these maintain their durability even when it rains. The front of the cleat features a grooved surface that helps give you great precision on your passes as well as great control while the ball is at your feet. The studs on the bottom of the cleat are cone-shaped in the forefoot with bladed in the heel to provide great traction on firm surfaces.
This cleat not only look great, but are also extremely comfortable. While some cleats are starting to get away from using kangaroo leather by using calf-leather, the Legend still chooses to feature kangaroo. This is a great decision because it provides an extremely good touch on the ball but it also comfortable. As soon as you try these on, the cleat provides a glove-like fit that is second to none. It also features a molded sockliner that gives good heel and arch support so you can remain comfortable while playing and your joints wont feel so bad after games. In order to help your heel from sliding out, which could cause blisters, Nike has put a soft cloth material at the heel to reduce that sliding.
With all the different soccer cleats Nike continues to come out with, the Legend remains near the top. The comfort is incredible and the kangaroo leather will help you to have an outstanding touch and mold to your foot nicely. If you want to avoid a synthetic cleat, and get one of the best leather cleats on the market, there is no better choice than the Legend. This is currently available for pre-order at SoccerPro.com for $143.99, which is not a bad price for a cleat of this quality.
