Nike is Going Wild with Gold-Wrapped Nike Tiempo Totti x Roma Boots to Celebrate Francesco Totti’s 25-year Career
Gold-wrapped Nike Tiempo Totti x Roma Boots are a thing now and everyone is in awe! Find out more about the limited edition pair of special boots!
To celebrate the remarkable career of King of Rome, playmaker and talisman, Francesco Totti, Nike is releasing a limited edition of gold-wrapped boots.
The Tiempo Totti x Roma boots are a limited edition collection of just 2,500 individually numbered pairs, with 100 for each of his 25 year career.
The AS Roma’s captain is famous for his love and loyalty to the club, having spent his entire professional career with AS Roma.
In the 1998-1999 season, Totti became captain of the club, which made him widely venerated as “Il Capitano” (the Captain) of the entire city.
“When I thought about a boot that could reflect the 25 years of my career, I immediately thought of gold. This boot had to encapsulate all my values — my family, AS Roma and the city of Rome. Nike understood straightaway how to create these boots,” explains Totti.
The boots feature the upper crafted in soft leather with gold accents, in honor of his achievements for AS Roma and his country.
Honored to wear the boots, the player is one of the greatest ever attacking playmakers.
“I’m honored to wear them but, above all, to be able to make them available to the fans.” – Francesco Totti
The heel counter has “Totti” written on it with the Swoosh contrasting in black.
On the front, the extended tongue writes “Aeterno” on the inside. The exterior decorated with Roman numeral “X”, in reference to his #10 jersey.
Some other decorations include aglets with TOTTI in gold and red detailing and a black chromed sole.
On the interior you can see AS Roma and TottiRoma written in gold above a specially designed crest.
A few athletes ever get the honor to have Nike create boots especially for them. Many players end up switching teams and moving around, but not Totti, he got to play his entire career for one team.
During his remarkable career he has won several awards including a Serie A title, two Coppa Italia titles and two Supercoppa Italiana titles.
That’s the main reason why people in the city consider him the Eighth King.
Launched last week, the Tiempo Totti x Roma boots are now available online from Nike.com. You can also purchase them from Pop-Up Totti X Roma store in Piazza San Lorenzo, Lucina and selected retailers.
