It’s super-rare that we get to see a boot in it’s physical form, and then not be able to buy it for almost a full four months afterwards, but Nike have definitely played the long game on the Nike Magista Obra – Black / Volt / Hyperpunch.
First spied at the Nike Innovation Summit in Barcelona, you couldn’t move on Instagram or Twitter for bumping into this alternative reveal colourway for Nike’s groundbreaking Magista Obra.
But, as these things sometimes happen, for the sake of keeping it ‘on message’ during the World Cup, the Nike Magista Obra – Black / Volt / Hyperpunch has had to wait it’s turn since then.
Thankfully, this new colourway is now available to order – launching subtly alongside the ‘Stealth Pack‘, the Nike Magista Obra – Black / Volt / Hyperpunch offers players a nice middle ground between the bold launch colourway and the new black-out edition.
Reminiscent of the LEDs on the Nike FuelBand, this Magista boasts a graduated colour change across it’s upper, with Volt on the lateral side of the boot meshing with Hyperpunch on the medial.
The result is a primarily black boot with a lot of character, making the Nike Magista Obra – Black / Volt / Hyperpunch a definite favourite in the Footy-Boots.com offices.
Despite no official on-pitch support, the Nike Magista Obra – Black / Volt / Hyperpunch will be available to order today, and we’re expecting them to be a popular option with unsigned players for sure.
Other than the pattern these are the same-ground breaking Magistas that Mario Gotze slammed home the winning goal of the World Cup in just a couple of weekends ago.
The stand-out Dynamic Fit Collar indicates the use of FlyKnit, which forms the upper of the boot for a fit and feel on the ball like nothing else on the market.
NikeSkin is also employed as a secondary element to the upper, providing additional waterproofing and control on the ball in bad weather, thanks to it’s ACC All Conditions Control properties.
