Nike have furnished Andrea Pirlo with his very own pair of custom Tiempo boots, boots that were intended to marry his two favourite pastimes: football and loitering around at vineyards.

Having spent his childhood helping out and harvesting grapes in the vineyards of Flero, Italy, Pirlo now owns and operates his very own winery in the region.

As such, Nike have decided to theme their ‘Tiempo Pirlo’ boot around the New York City FC midfielder’s fondness for vino by using Merlot-coloured leather and even sneaking genuine cork insoles into the mix…

The Tiempos even ship in a proper wooden crate, each stamped with Pirlo’s name and “aged since ’94” on the flank.

Gimmicks aside, they’re actually pretty bloomin’ lovely.
