The Tiempo Legend V Premium is a revived and resuscitated version of the iconic Tiempo soccer boot. This limited edition boot is being released as a tribute to AS Roma and Italy legend Francesco Totti, who has a special affinity towards the Tiempos.

The Tiempo line first began in 1985, gaining recognition over time for its highly recognizable, over-sized fold-over tongue, which was worn by eight of Brazil's World Cup-winning players in 1994. The fold-over tongue was designed to provide a flat surface atop the shoe's laces, enabling better ball-striking. However, this feature was retired in 2011 due to the evolution of boots and laces.

After a four-year hiatus, the Tiempo Legend V Premium has been made available in limited quantities to honor the Tiempo line and the legend of Totti.
