Nike Tiempo 94 launch with Marco Materazzi in Mumbai


May 25th 2014 offered a stunning Champions League final which also marked the celebration of Real Madrid’s La Decima feat. However, for me the football fever began few hours earlier in the evening as I attended the launch of Nike TIEMPO 94 collection by Italian World Cup scoring football legend Marco Materazzi in Mumbai. I was also joined by Sukhneet W Gujral, Assistant Stylist Vogue India & fashion blogger at Ms Coco Queen, Nishant Nayyar of FHM India team and Kshitij Kankaria, a Bollywood Stylist for an exclusive session in a “Locker room” setting where Marco Materazzi showcased the latest football innovations for summer 2014 and spoke about his passion for sneakers! The football legend’s witty humour was very much evident when the Vice President & General Manager of Nike India, Mr. Bob Coombes, introduced and talked about various accomplishments and fame of the Italian defender while Marco concluded whispering **head-butt**

While talking about his love for sneakers, Marco Materazzi also revealed that he owns a mind-boggling 2000 pair of sneakers and Jordan 11, his favourite pair happens to be one of the three sneaker tattoos in his arm! Marco also hinted at Cristiano Ronaldo to be the player to be watched out in FIFA 2014 given his incredible form and techniques. When asked about Marco’s association with Nike, he replied saying that other brands are what Nike was 10 years ago, Nike is different!

I was also introduced to Nike India’s latest footwear summer collection. This latest lifestyle range of Tiempo will add a pop of colour to your wardrobe this season. The Nike classics promise of comfort, design and colors thus reinventing each classic with technology to reflect modern day demands.


The latest Nike TIEMPO ’94 MID, true to its DNA, is high on performance and craftsmanship and honors its legacy with premium leathers, a versatile style and gradient colors. Another offering from the Tiempo brand family this season includes the Nike TIEMPO TRAINER MID.
