No. 13 – Nike Tiempo Ronaldinho 10R
Highlight: The first true personalized Ronaldinho boot that took on all the positive traits we expect from a Tiempo release.
You can’t have a top 25 list without including what were the first true personalized and complete boots released for a Nike sponsored player. At the time, Ronaldinho was playing for Barcelona and coming off back-to-back World Player of the year awards. In other words, he was the perfect marketing piece. From the fold over tongue that created a larger striking zone to the soft K-leather upper, everything was specifically molded to complement Ronaldinho’s style. The extra smooth K-Leather upper took on a completely new type of stitching pattern that allowed for a more personalized fit across the forefoot. It made for a very professional look and falls right in line with even our current day expectations of the Tiempo range.
