    Looks like a sock with Predator elements in that closeup.

    I bet Nike has seen the success of the Predator and thought they needed to add a power boot to their line - I actually find all the Nike lines sort of merge into one boot nothing really defines them anymore it’s all (apart from the tiempo) just a flyknit upper so will be nice to see them adding boots like this to the line.

    Gotta hand it to Nike.

    They killed the power boot, and now they're gonna bring it back, while their biggest competitor is stuck chasing whatever they do.

    Hey guys,
    I recently got a hold of a deadstock pair of Legend 6 (black and white colorway) in a size 7.5 US (6.5 UK) but the left foot has been mislabeled. I’m pretty sure it is a size 8 US (7 UK).

    If anyone here is interested in a Legend 6 (I repainted it to burgundy to make it look like the Pirlo ones) AND if your left foot is a size 8 while your right foot is a 7.5 then I can sell this for cheap.
    Otherwise i’m posting it on ebay. Thanks!

    Finally got my grails!!! Couldn't get them when I was young but got them now. Had to pay resale but it was worth it. Now debating if I should wear them or put them on display

    I'd be wearing those every day if I were you.

    Got my phantom vsn elite last night. Played in them this morning. I played terrible, somehow scored the second in a 2-0 win. My play was not boot related, didn't feel well so was lazy and sloppy all game.

    What I will say is they are maybe the nicest feeling boots I've worn. Like there's a lot of cushion, some decent padding in all the right spots. They fit me perfectly sizewise. I felt like I had pillows on. Was very strange for such thin boots

    Very grippy, will take some getting used to. But my goodness my feet have never been so happy

    What’s the sizing like? I heard Unisport say they run a little long.

    woah wait, its out already!? sounds like a really exciting boot. Wasn't a huge fan of the MAgista 2's and Jaymike's suggested that he does prefer the Purespeeds than this but i can't wait to try both out.

    Yup! The blackout released on the 18th, but the ‘Raised on Concrete’ will not be out for another week (30th). I’m waiting for that maroon one that’s slated to come out on August 6th. Killer color.

    Just got the PVE in the mail tried them on for a bit they feel pretty comfortabl, should be going to play in the next couple days to really try them out. As you can tell I like all black boots. The other pair is MO.

    I sized down .5 in sf 360s. I found true to size ran too long.

    i did some training in my blackout tiempo legend 7s yesterday. i was a little hesitant about them when i received the package in the mail. they were tough to get on and felt a little bit too roomy at the toe. after wearing them for about an hour and twenty minutes, i really like them. i haven't had legends since the 4s, which i loved. these feel like a pair i could keep until i wear them out. i'd say order them true to size.

    That’s true. I have zero idea why SR4U Josh keeps on insisting they run half a size small when everyone I know has them true to size. It’s also a bit misleading too, because it is difficult to get on your feet and may have other people doubting if they should get a bigger size.
    This also took me long to break in compared to most boots of today.

    Can confirm, I tried Tiempo Legend 7 Elite in a store and picked 9 US, which is my size and sometimes bigger than my size, but the boot was snug, like really snug, I can feel its tightness despite having some room at the toe level, but I can see that it would stretch easily. Anyways I didn't buy and I won't, this generation of Tiempo is not my type, too modern for my taste, plus, it's very expensive, it was 220 euros.
    I already told my cousin to order Nike Premier 2.0 White Gold for me from prodirectsoccer, 100 euros and exactly my kind of boots.

    Yes. I feel like the Tiempo Legend 7 has become too light and a little flimsy because it no longer feels as solid as Tiempos of the past. I do feel like people who want leather boots not only want good quality leather, but the overall feel of it too.

    Yeah, Tiempo just became a leather control boot, it lost its heritage aspect.

    mmm, interesting. I'm waiting for the Tiempos to go on sale because i tried on a friend's pair that was a US8, and i'm usually a us9 in mizunos - and the touch just felt super awesome. Add to that the flyknit tongue as well as the flywire, it might just surpass my morelia 2 love soon. Just got a great combo of everything you need from a modern boot, much improved from the 6's.

    I get what you guys are talking about though, luckily youve stll got the tiempo premiers!

    Oh don’t get me wrong, I love my Tiempos! It’s just that they feel a little too...light. For some people that is the dream but for me I prefer boots that *feel* solid and a little heavy. Hence why I love the Pred and Nemeziz 18.1.

    You’ll love the Legend 7, they are very responsive for being a Tiempo. When I wear them I don’t even have to re-tie the laces at half-time, unlike my trusty old Legend 6.
    If you really want a pair bad, you can try American ebay! Legend 7s usually range from $85-120 there.

    i do worry about the durability of the tiempos. they don't feel as solid as the 4s i had, my mizunos, or the predators i wore this spring. the leather is nice, no doubt, but nike putting flyknit in everything is a way to cut costs and raise prices for "innovation".

    i would have considered trying the premiers if they didn't have the ugly foldover tongue. just my opinion.

    I'm true to size in the sf360, but there's definitely a smidge more room in the toe box.

    It's less of a smothering boot all around. The difference in flywire is immediately apparent IMO.

    I'm TTS in the new SF as well. I think it's a touch shorter than previous SFs and vapors tbh, though still a few mm longer than the other silos in the same size.

    I wish I could find a pair of vapor viii that didn't cost a lot :confused:

    Outside of eBay where do you guys look for used cleats?
