The magic reached new heights as Nike, back in April, presented their most innovative and revolutionising football boot in recent times. The collection was dubbed Magista and includes two top boots: The Magista Obra and the Magista opus. During the six months we have seen four colourways, which we have gathered right here. Come along.
Most of the Nike family probably never doubted that the Magista would be a big success. But few people would have dared to foresee that the latest family member would become the match-winner at the World Cup final. Mario Götze surely did the business and made sure that the Magista Obra got the best press a football boot could ever get.
And the first model, which came with the Volt/Metallic Gold Coin/Black colours certainly also managed to stand out on the Brazilian World Cup stadiums, where this first model really got released upon the world. And the loud colours were brought back with the fourth and latest model coming in an turquoise that is not to miss.
If Nike felt that it was maybe a bit too much with the first Volt colourway, we don't know; but we do know that they decided to follow it with two colourways that showed some more subtle designs. The classic black design design has hereby been represented in the one half of the Magista boots so far, and both ends of the fashion spectrum are hereby represented.
And while the primary focus has been on the Magista Obra, Nike have not forgotten about their Magista Opus, which provides an alternative for those who are not really into the innovative Dynamic Fit Collar or the Flyknit upper. The Magista Opus also proved to be an equally attractive football boot with a long list of professionals, who have decided to swap their CTR360 Maestri II for the Magista Opus.
The four colourways have been identical in terms of technologies, respectively both for the Magista Obra and Opus; and together with the sole, this is actually the only thing that is identical between the two models. While the Obra is equipped with a Flyknit upper, the Opus comes with KangaLite, the same material as we know from the previously mentioned CTR360. And then there is of course also the characteristic Dynamic Fit Collar, which not everyone has agreed was an argument for choosing the Obra over the Opus.
The Magista collection is the latest Nike silo, but that certainly doesn't make is less popular. Quite the opposite. Nike have very much hit the jackpot with the new Magista football boots. Which of the designs are you most into so far – subtle or loud?
