Magista Obra Boots

Nike Magista Obra

Dropped onto the hot boot market for the start of the 2016/17 football season, the Magista Obra II was dramatically remodelled and remastered to act as successor to the original Magista Obra model first released back in 2014 for the World Cup. With 'Magista' meaning 'Magician' and 'Obra' translating to 'Work' in Portuguese, Nike's control-infused silo delivers exactly what it sets out to by acting as the platform for ball wizardry performances by headline players of Kevin De Bruyne, Mario Gotze, Blaise Matuidi, and David Luiz.

The most unique feature of the Magista Obra II is undoubtedly its aggressively dimpled upper which is composed from Nike's trademark and innovative Flyknit and NikeSkin combination. Whilst the redesigned dimpled upper poses as a new addition for the Magista Obra II, the newer model takes inspiration from its predecessor by incorporating a similar yet more streamlined Dynamic Fit collar for enhancements of a sock-like sensation. Proving incredibly popular across Nike's elite level football boots and trainers, FlyKnit is used as the base for construction which was first seen on Nike’s running shoes back in 2012 engineered from a woven upper of special yarns.

The noticeably raised and heavily dimpled upper aims to deliver increased friction between the boot and ball to subsequently increase accuracy and control when touching and striking. Acting as a thin synthetic layer above the Flyknit upper is a NikeSkin coating which offers waterproofing to ensure limited absorption whilst Nike's ACC technology provides grip in varying conditions. The Magista Obra II also features a modified sole plate which resembles the original CTR360 range to enhance rotational traction for quick pivoting and swivel movements. If the Magista Obra II is above your price range you can try the Opus II, Orden II, Onda II, and Ola II models designed for junior, youth, and developing footballers.
