With 4 years of development and direct input from popular attackers like Gotze and Iniesta, Nike looked to make something revolutionary and that is exactly what they did; the collection of Magista soccer shoes puts a unique twist on boots like you have never seen before. While a lot of hype was placed on the high-end Nike Magista Obra, there are actually 4 different styles in the Magista line, each targeted at different budget ranges. Here is what you need to know about the Nike Magista collection:
Nike Magista Obra
When it comes to the new line of Nike Magista soccer cleats, the Obra is king. There are a lot of things that were changed about the way soccer shoes are made with the Nike Magista Obra. Some of the revolutionary features of this boot include:
Dynamic Fit Collar – The collar on the Obra was created to lock the foot and ankle so that they function together, improving your game.
Flyknit – The Obra is the only one in the product line that operates as Nike Flyknight soccer shoes. Flyknit is extremely breathable and puts very little separation between your foot and the ball giving you great breathing and feel of the ball, but still keeping you protected.
ACC – All conditions control was added to the Obra to ensure that you have maximum control no matter what type of weather you are playing in.
Nike Magista Opus
Unlike the Nike Magista Obra, the Nike Magista Opus soccer shoe do not feature the dynamic fit collar nor is it one of the Nike Flyknit soccer shoes. Instead it is a mixture of Kanga-Lite, Nikeskin, and performance mesh that gives breathability and feel of the ball for the Opus. Beyond those differences, the Opus and Obra are fairly similar but without leading technology in the Opus, it is priced much lower.
Nike Magista Orden
As a mid-range option for someone looking for Nike Magista soccer cleats, the Orden series works well. Unlike the two higher-end products, the Orden does not have all conditions control and the mesh quality lowers again. It uses a standard Nike mesh instead of a performance mesh or Nike Flyknit soccer shoes technology. The Orden also uses cheaper outsoles (TPU instead of compressed nylon).
Nike Magist Onda
The Onda is the budget offering for the Nike Magista line of boots. Unlike Nike Flyknit soccer shoes that were designed to be as light and durable as possible, the Onda—almost a quarter of the price of the most expensive Magista—uses a synthetic and textured leather upper instead of Flyknit or even Kanga-Lite.
