Nike Tiempo VII “Platinum Black”

Nike officially introduced on 26th of June the all new Nike Tiempo VII (7)! They will be sale today 10th of July. Lucky enough I was given this Limited Edition Nike Tiempo VII “Platinum Black” before the official launch, there is only 100 pairs made worldwide and only given to football boot influencers around the world! A big bonus is the fact that they are individually numbere, my pair is numbered 30/100. 

This time Nike really has added some cool new features to the Tiempo VII: 

  • Heel area and the tongue is made of Flyknit, reduces the weight by 22%.
  • Middlefoot is constructed of flywire cables for better strech and stability.
  • On top of the flywire cage Nike added a soft K-leather upper to give a better touch to the ball.
  • NikeGrip is also added to the new Tiempo to prevent the foot from sliding inside of the boot.


Nike has also made a whole new soleplate, Hyperstability, and it’s lighter than the previous soleplate. Such a comfortable boot and when you add the good look on this boot then for me this is the best Tiempo ever!

Adidas Predator Mania Sg “Blackout”Edition


Forget “Japan Blue Mania” for a moment and try to figure out which Mania could be even rarer? The answer for that question is revealed in this post!


Very rare Adidas Presator Mania Sg “Blackout” edition, I dare to say that they are the rarest Manias released for public. Don’t really know much about these boots as they that uncommon, but they are individually numbere in the heel. Left boot says 73 and right boot 33.


Some say that these boots were designed as early Mi-Adidas model. Some selected around the world were given a handful of all black numbered Manias, could be 1-100 pairs. So you couldn’t customize your own colours as you can these days but you could customize the fit and feel on the boots. 


Adidas took your measurements and the stiched numbers in the heel was somehow linked to size and widhts. Then the customer was free to try on which ever boot that suited best. After that the customer made an order and purchased a pair in the regular colourway but with own measurements. It might have cost you around 400€ in 2002 so they were really exclusive!
