Expert reviews:

  • In terms of construction, the Nike TiempoX  Legend 7 Academy Turf features a calf leather upper with a molded textured upper design, similar to what can be seen in some other Tiempo models. This feature helps provide a flexible fit and dominating touch on the ball on turf fields, especially during dribbling.
  • The cleat utilizes a standard lacing system on its mid-foot. The laces are linked to webbed cable eyelets that facilitate a close, adaptive fit. It allows the foot to hold up well during agile moves on the field.
  • For the cleat's inner lining, Nike utilized synthetic material that offers a great in-shoe feel. The material on the cleat's interior offers breathability as well as excellent lightweight foam cushioning. The molded sock liner helps reduce stud pressure, enhancing the overall comfort of the cleat.

The Nike TiempoX  Legend 7 Academy Turf comes in the standard soccer cleat sizes for men. Wearers can expect these cleats to fit true to size. Added comfort and enhanced fit are provided by the internal foam cushioning system of the cleat.

The outsole of the Nike TiempoX Legend 7 Academy Turf is designed with rubber studs that offer the needed traction for synthetic surfaces. The unmatched traction of the cleat allows players to move with speed and precision as they execute their plays on the pitch.

Unlike the firm ground Legend 7 that sports a natural leather look, the Nike TiempoX Legend 7 Academy Turf uses calf leather for its entire upper. The upper is made with a textured design that is meant to improve ball control and offer added flexibility.

A padded collar is added to the cleat for added cushioning. The cleat further benefits from its internal construction for enhanced foot protection as well as better comfort.
