Who should NOT buy this firm-ground soccer cleat from Nike

The Nike Tiempo Legend 9 Pro FG is not for those who yearn for premium-feeling shoes. They are of course better off with the elite version and other premium offers from Nike like the Mercurial Vapor 14 and the Mercurial Superfly 8

This shoe is also not recommended for those who do not have time to break into their shoes. This is a common issue among the concurrent Nike soccer cleat releases. If they are willing to go for cleats from other brands, the Adidas X Speedflow.1 FG might be a better pick for them.

According to a soccer player, this shoe is able to do this because the inside of the shoe has more cushioning in areas that need extra lockdown. This extra padding helps lock the foot and keeps it from unnecessarily moving during aggressive sprints and kicks.

Ball feel is good

Compared to the elite version, the upper is made of leather that is slightly thinner and less soft. This upper still has to be broken in before it unleashes its true potential.
