The new Nike football boots for the World Cup 2014 in Brazil are the Nike Magista boots. Every team that Nike sponsors wears four pairs of Magista’s. The two most valued and respected players are wearing the Nike Magista Obra FG Volt Metallic Gold. This is the high model, which has the Dynamic Fit Collar and is available in different colors. The other two players considered being worthy enough by Nike to wear the new football boots are wearing the Nike Magista Opus FG Volt Metallic Gold. This is the lower model without the Dynamic Fit Collar and looks more like the standard casual football shoe.
So what do we actually know about the new World Cup 2014 soccer boots? Well we know that Nike gave them the official name “Nike Magista Soccer Cleats”. Both models look like a standard football boot but looks can be decisive since the Magista’s are made of a new fabric that makes the boots feel like socks or an extra outers kin to your foot. The soccer boots have a Flyknit nose and upperparts, which gives the football player improved levels of ball control. The specially developed rotational traction is made of Pebax Nylon with conical studs for a 360 degrees rotation traction which is found on both models. The high models have an additional sock-like fit with their Dynamic Fit Collar.
Have you seen the Nike Magista’s score?
We have seen the new Nike Magista’s in top football teams such as Brazil, The Netherlands, Spain, England, France, Italy, Argentina and many more since Nike is sponsor of around 60% of the teams! The upcoming football star Neymar scored the first goal of the World Cup 2014 and guess what he was wearing Nike Magista’s! And some 30 minutes after the first one he scores his second one with his Nikes on! The Brazilians defeated the Croatians 3-1 in this duel and Neymar JR became the first the Man of the Match (MVP) of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Neymar JR made his way to the top in just 90 minutes; this is due to his excellent ball control and amazing speeds. Maybe the Nike Magista’s contributed to these stats? And guess what the absolute thrashing of Spain by The Netherlands in a 1-5 match was done by the top players Robben and V. Persie. Robben scored two goals getting an awesome assist from Sneijder (playing with the Magista’s on) in this match of the titans. The defender Ron Vlaar was making chicken stew of the Spanish attacks on his Magistas. The Dutch defeated Spain like it was nothing and maybe with some feeling of vengeance looking back at the World Cup of 2010.
Nike explains that they have been developing the new shoes for over 4 years and made approximately 180 prototypes. You could say that this football shoe is a piece of art that is created by the finest shoemaker in town. Nike listened to the athletes for advice on where to put an extra layer of fabric and where to remove some irregularities. And with top players we are talking about Ronoldo, Zlatan, Rooney and many more. The fit had to be perfect just like the traction, natural motions, stability and endurance. This shoe is the Ferrari and Lamborghini combined to make the ultimate super shoe.
