Good to know

  • The turf version of the TiempoX Finale features soft calf-skin leather for its upper. The upper uses an interior quilting that works with the leather to provide a cushioned touch on the ball. A similar construction can also be seen in the previous Tiempo models.
  • Another feature of the cleat is Nike's innovative Lunarlon midsole. This cushioning system eases foot pressure by evenly distributing the impact over the sole. The reduced pressure points on the heel make for a much comfortable ride on the pitch.
  • The cleat also utilizes multi-directional flex grooves located at the midsole and the outsole. This feature works to enhance the natural range motion of the foot. It provides the foot adequate support without feeling too restricted.

The Nike Tiempo X Finale Turf comes in the standard sizes for men only. Like most Tiempo cleats, this cleat fits true to size and has moderate width. The comfortable fit of the cleat owes to the mesh liner inside the mid-foot and the integrated lockdown cables that allow a tight foot fitting.

The TiempoX Finale Turf highlights a non-marking turf outsole marked with rubber studs. This type of outsole provides lightweight, targeted traction on artificial turf surfaces. Moreover, the sole unit also features multi-directional flex grooves that help players make quick transitions during the game.

The Nike TiempoX Finale Turf wears calf-skin leather instead of the kangaroo leather found in the Legacy. The calf-skin, although quite thicker, is nonetheless soft and able to offer durability as well as an exceptional touch on the ball. The quilted texture of the upper further enhances ball touch by offering a molded feel.

The leather upper, along with the breathable synthetic mesh on its heel and tongue, preserves the original fit of the cleat. Elastic gussets attached to the synthetic tongue hold it in place for a secure fit.

  • This soccer cleat weighs 8 ounces.
