No Pirlo. No Party. Sport-locker.net bring you something outrageously good this morning!

If there is one thing Italian legend Andrea Pirlo obsesses as much as football, it’s winemaking.

Pirlo’s history with wine goes back to his childhood in Flero, where he spent a lot of time harvesting grapes at local vineyards.

His passion for fine wine led Pirlo and his family to open a winery called Pratum Coller.

To celebrate Pirlo’s dual careers as a footballer and winemaker, Nike Football has crafted a limited edition Tiempo Pirlo.

The boot’s upper features premium Alegria leather in a merlot colourway inspired by the juice of the grape. Similar to Pratum Coller’s logo, four gold stars appear on the boot’s heel counter and plate to honor Italy’s World Cup titles. The Italian flag is also featured on the lace aglet.

As a nod to Tiempo’s heritage and the process of producing wine, Aged Since ’94 appears in metallic gold on a genuine cork sockliner and also on the polka dot shoebox.

The boots are packaged similar to a bottle of wine and include an additional performance sockliner.

Limited edition Tiempo Pirlo will be available September 19 via the Nike Football App and www.nike.com
