While Andres Iniesta has yet to give the Nike Magista Obra their official debut, the midfielder was spotted wearing the release colourway during training.
Today’s unveiling of the new Nike Mercurial Superfly 2014 means that the Magista is not alone in boasting a FlyKnit upper and ankle collar, but it is still nonetheless one of the most exciting boots around, especially since it will be replacing the hugely popular CTR line. While Iniesta is set to be one player in a star-studded line up of Magista wearers, he remains the only player to have trained in the actual release colourway, perhaps indicating Nike’s intentions to make him the face of the line.
Iniesta’s midfield partner for both club and country, Xavi was spotted in the yet to be released next generation adidas Predator. adidas have yet to officially show their hand in terms of what they have in store boot wise for the World Cup, but from what we have been told they have some incredible things in store, including this new Predator. While adidas have named its recent Predators based off of their five “lethal zones”, this new Predator will be dubbed the Instinct and, by the looks of things, will feature a intriguing new element across the forefoot and a new outsole.
