With World Cup right around the corner, we’re patiently waiting for Nike, which will have huge presence over the international sporting event, to come through with some amazing sneakers. We’ve already received a taste with the clean Tiempo releases, but the recent unveiling of Air Max 1 colorways inspired by the legendary Mercurial boot surely has us feeling like our needs have been met.

Check out the additional photos below and we’ll hit you with a release date when it comes up.
