While soccer has only recently started garnering interest stateside with some impressive wins at the FIFA Confederation Cup, the U.S .had hosted FIFA World Cup in 1994. At the final game for FIFA World Cup 1994, legendary player and former Team Captain of AC Milan, Paolo Maldini, made the Nike Tiempo 94 famous as it was the first time the boots debuted. To celebrate both the heritage of Nike Tiempo 94 and Paolo Maldini who is now retired, Nike has released a limited edition, limited distribution Nike Tiempo 94 remade with Flywire technology, reducing weight of the shoes by 30% in comparison to the original ones Maldini donned. Only 2,500 pairs are available through select retailers in Europe and a total of 5,000 pairs available worldwide, so these shoes are not just great cleats for soccer, but also a collector’s item. Check out the video created by Nike Italy for the campaign of the new Tiempo 94. Right on time as we approach 2010 and the upcoming FIFA World Cup. Ole!
