Nike have unveiled a fresh look for the Magista in the form of the new Black/Volt/Blue colourway.
This latest Magista is the first in a new round of colourways that Nike will be introducing for all four of its silos in the coming days. Released amid some fanfare back in March, the Magista was a groundbreaking release from Nike as it featured some never-before seen features. Most notable was the Flyknit upper, first seen on the brand’s running shoes in 2012 and making its football debut. Consisting of a 3D woven material designed to feel more like a second sock than anything else, FlyKnit was a major new addition as it not only improves touch on the ball but also, with the addition of a NikeSkin layer, is very waterproof.
The other big addition was the Dynamic Fit Collar, probably the most unconventional part of the cleat. The mid-top collar was unlike anything seen on a soccer cleat but had a very basic logic behind, making the movement of ankle and foot as seamless as possible and creating a more snug and secure fit. Nike were so keen on it that soon after its introduction on the Magista, the Dynamic Fit Collar was brought to the Mercurial Superfly.
In our review of the Magista back in December our reviewer cited comfort and overall performance as the main factors behind the Magista being “some of the best cleats I have ever reviewed.” The Magista is also backed up by an even more impressive line up of players, with the likes of Paul Pogba, Mario Gotze, Christian Erisken and Andres Iniesta all avid wearers of the Magista.
