Remembering That Time When You Spent Every Lesson Customising Football Boots On Nike iD

Hey, who remembers when you spent almost every ICT lesson at school customising football boots on the Nike iD website, despite never actually buying the finished product because it was way out of your price range?

Thinking about it, I'm surprised Nike didn't scout me to be their Head of Design after the hours of graft I put into making a pair.

The sheer amount of hours dedicated to making these Nike Tiempo's look absolute fire will never be forgotten.

Of course, you can still "exercise your creativity" by customising your own boot, adding personalised colour combinations, text and even your country's flag in this incredibly satisfying process.

But those days at school, discussing your one-of-a-kind design with a group of mates, will never be topped.

People are still talking about this past-time on a weekly, if not daily basis on social media.

As mentioned earlier, you can still 'elevate your game' by customising a pair of boots.

"Exercise your creativity with the latest styles of custom football boots from Nike. Choose from signature Nike football boot models and add personalised colour combinations, text and even your country's flag." the official Nike website reads.

"You can truly create one-of-a-kind, custom football boots that match your personality, position and playing style. Pair custom football boots with Nike football clothing for a professional look that will get you prepared to play on any pitch."


We all had that mate who customised boots with you, whether that be at school or at work.
