Like in other Nike silos, the Pro Tiempo offers an affordable but nonetheless great alternative in the form of a calfskin leather forefoot and just a slightly thicker TPU outsole, in fact the Pro Tiempo is one of the very best slight cheaper than Elite Pro Tiempo is also available in synthetic, turf, and indoor models. It also has the standard Nike SG soleplate which some prefer than the Anti Clog because of its lighter weight.

Cheaper option in the Tiempo Legend VII, features an alternative calf leather upper, lacks Flyknit, Flywire & HyperStability technologies

Tiempo Legend 9 Club
Cheapest Tiempo Legend VII, available in junior and adult sizing, uses a synthetic leather upper to decrease price tag
