Jamal Musiala wears the Nike Tiempo Legend. It’s a fitting player-boot combination, considering Musiala is a young, budding star and the Tiempo just started a new leaf as a synthetic leather boot. It also says a lot about the player, becoming the face of a Nike silo at such an early age. With the Flytouch Plus upper of his boots, Musiala is able to get a soft, dampened touch on the ball while remaining lightweight and comfortable. Prior to the Tiempo, the German midfielder was with Team Mercurial, specifically the high-cut Superfly version.
Musiala Boot History
In continuation of Bayern’s campaign in the 2023/24 UCL group stages, Musiala joined the rest of the Nike players participating in the competition in wearing the brand’s dedicated pack for the tournament. Which mean that Musiala was wearing a pair of Hyper Turquoise Tiempo Legend 10 that somehow went back-and-forth to being green or sky blue, depending on the available lighting on the pitch.
Musiala got to share this special edition of the Tiempo Legend 10 with Virgil Van Dijk. Touch of Class was worn by the star in Bayern’s UCL 2023/24 group stage opener against Manchester United, where the golden treatment on the upper sparkled under the bright lights of the event. He then continued to wear the boots for a few more matches back in the Bundesliga.
His switch to the Tiempo was completed with him going for the silo in Nike’s 2023/24 season-opening Ready pack. Tiempo Ready had the Flytouch Plus in white with bold black Swoosh outlines and irregular block panels on the quarter. A tinge of red accent popped out from the Flyknit tongue.
The player went on to wear the all-new Tiempo Legend 10, moving away from the Mercurial Superfly and into the synthetic leather boot. He began his Tiempo stint with the United colourway, the orange Tiempo designed with the bespoke ‘United’ U graphic pattern dedicated for the Women’s World Cup.
Who is Jamal Musiala?
Jamal Musiala was born on 26th of February 2003 in Stuttgart. Starting at the age of seven though, he spent his childhood in England. Football-wise, this culminated with him being part of the Chelsea Academy from 2011 to 2019. He went back to his German roots and joined Bayern Munich prior to the start of the 2019/20 season.
It was a well-timed move as he got introduced to the winning culture of the Bavarian club, with Bayern securing a continental treble that season. He not only eventually secured a regular spot in the starting XI in the succeeding seasons, he also helped Bayern Munich win the Bundesliga in each of those seasons (up to 2022/23 at the moment of this writing). In fact, it was his dramatic 89th minute goal that allowed Bayern Munich to win the league on the last match of 2022/23.
Boots-wise, he started his Bayern career wearing the Mercurial Superfly. He was seen wearing the Superfly 7s, 8s, and 9s before switch it up to his current silo. This meant he got the chance to feel the tight Flyknit upper of the 7, the snappy and responsive Aerotrak on the 7 and 8, and the comfortable, cushiony sensation of the Zoom Air technology on the 9. He spent a significant portion wearing the yellow-orange Superfly 7 from the Daybreak pack. As he gained more prominence, he eventually got involved in wearing the player-wide releases, and that culminated with him being one of the poster boys for the now-synthetic Tiempo Legend.
