Magista Boots

First launched in May 2014, the Magista is Nike's latest boot silo which replaced the CTR360 range. 'Magista' means 'Magician' and 'Obra' means 'Work' in Portuguese. Like the CTR360 series the Magista range is designed for complete control at pro level, for players who want to control the game, the passing playmaker and the game changer. For the first time in Nike's history, there are two pro level Magista boots available the Obra and Opus both of which are favoured by professional footballers. Obra wearers include Andres Iniesta, Thiago Silva, David Luiz and Mario Gotze.

The most unique feature of the Magista Obra is the Dynamic Fit Collar which covers the ankle giving the boots a sock-like feel enhancing comfort and control. Optimising comfort the Magista features a new and innovative FlyKnit Upper which offers an enhanced feel, fit and control by creating a second skin feel also allowing for strength and support. FlyKnit was first seen on Nike’s running shoes back in 2012 and it uses an engineered upper woven from special yarns. The Magista uses a custom Nike last and FlyKnit construction offering a super snug fit.

Much like the CTR360 the Magista is built for enhanced control and this is where the 3D-Knit texture is employed on the upper. The raised and inverted texture of the FlyKnit increases friction between the boot and the ball increasing accuracy, control when passing and receiving. To waterproof the upper Nike have added a super thin NIKESKIN layer. Nike’s ACC coating is again featured on this boot enhancing grip and control in both wet and dry conditions. The Magista is built for improved traction adding a 360 degrees rotational traction system with the use of conical studs and a Pebax nylon plate. If the Magista is above your price range you can try the Opus, Orden, Onda and Ola editions designed for junior, youth and developing footballers.
