Taking it back eight years Nike re-visit the Air Legend for the oldest throwback in the new Tiempo Premier Legend Collection. An era where Ronaldinho was king, Manchester United had just signed a wonderkid called Anderson and Roque Santa Cruz was tearing up the Premier League at Blackburn. The good old days eh?
The Tiempo Legend Premier collection is a trip down memory lane with the sun out and the windows down and the "Metallic White/Blue Sapphire" edition is the last stop, sitting pretty and the end of the road. Ah, the memories. Unsurprisingly that bicolour combo is still as beautiful as ever as it drives out of the Swoosh garage and into the driving seat of their latest but most classic set of wheels.
With all the ground-breaking technology we've seen in recent releases, Nike haven't forgotten where it all started for the brand and the coloured updates come from two other sources: the iconic 1994 Tiempo Premier, worn by 10 of the players in that year's World Cup final, and the first shoe to ever carry the Swoosh, a 1971 boot called 'The Nike'.
