Nike has unveiled the limited edition Tiempo Totti X Roma to mark the 25th anniversary of Francesco Totti’s career.
In total, 2,500 pairs are being made available as Nike celebrate the incredible career of the Roma captain.
Totti is renowned all over the world for his love for Roma and his loyalty to the club and the city, having spent his entire professional career - 25 years - with his boyhood team.
The boots’ upper is crafted in soft leather in a gold colorway, in honor of Totti’s achievements for Roma and his country – winning both the scudetto and the World Cup.
“When I thought about a boot that could reflect the 25 years of my career, I immediately thought of gold,” Totti said. “This boot had to encapsulate all my values - my family, AS Roma and the city of Rome. Nike understood straightaway how to create these boots.”
With ‘TOTTI’ on the heel counter and the Swoosh contrasting in black, the upper features the names of his three children – Cristian, Chanel and Isabel – in his own handwriting.
The signature, elongated tongue features ‘Aeterno’ on the inside, whilst the outside is adorned with the Roman numeral ‘X’ in reference to Totti’s famous No. 10 jersey, as well as the city’s ancient history. The aglets feature ‘Totti’ in gold and red detailing, whilst the sole is a black chromed plate.
The insole reflects the colours of AS Roma, and ‘Totti X Roma’ appears in gold above the specially created crest.
“I'm honoured to wear them but, above all, to be able to make them available to the fans was more important,” Totti continued. “They will be available as a limited edition of just 2,500 pairs – 100 pairs created for every year of my club career.”
Every pair of boots is individually numbered, and will be available from Nike.com, at the pop-up 'Totti X Roma' store in Rome's Piazza San Lorenzo, and selected retailers from April 26.
