A Closer Look at the Nike Tiempo ’94 Mid “Air Jordan” Collection
For Italian football champion Marco Materazzi, nothing embodies greatness like Michael Jordan and the Jordan Brand heritage. Taking inspiration from Materazzi’s all-out sneaker obsession – he opened Milan’s renowned Space23 while his affinity for “His Airness” and the number 23 extends from his own jersey number to his marriage date and son’s birth date – and his trio of Air Jordan 1 tattoos, Nike Sportswear created a Jordan-esque collection featuring the mid-top take on the Tiempo ’94. Previewed earlier this month, the Nike Tiempo ’94 Mid “Air Jordan” collection includes a trio of nods to the original Air Jordan silhouette, each constructed with a premium leather upper and iconic color-blocking. Retailing for $135 USD each, the trio of Materazzi-designed Tiempo Quickstrikes will be available from both Nike.com and Space23 on February 23 before hitting additional NSW stockists across the globe March 1.
