Footballer Marco Materazzi honors his greatest influences with three limited color-ups of the Tiempo '94 Mid.
Greatness inspires all athletes to perform their best and Italian football champion Marco Materazzi is no different. For Materazzi, greatness is embodied by Michael Jordan, who while half a world away galvanized him to achieve it for himself and also opened the doors to what would become an all-out obsession for sneakers, and the eventual opening of a Milan based sneaker shop. Celebrating Materazzi’s rise to glory and his retail venture, Nike introduces a series of three Tiempo ’94 Mids that pay tribute to the key influences along his journey to the top.
Two decades later Nike and Materazzi celebrate his journey to greatness with special editons of the Tiempo ’94. Materazzi seized the opportunity to emphasize two key influences: Michael Jordan, and the city of Milan.
Simultaneously honoring the city that shaped him, the colors tie back to the team he is most known for representing, their rivals, and the city that made him who he is.
