Nike Magista Obra II FG - VoltBlackTotal Orange
What might happen if the foot had evolved as if it were designed to play football? The next-gen Nike Magista Obra II football boots were introduced today with an extremely bold and flamboyant look, designed to be like an organic extension of the foot. The yellow Nike Magista Obra 2 cleats will be worn at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
"After reading research around evolution and morphology," explains Nike football designer Phil Woodman, "I was interested in the hypothesis that pruning hands were an evolutionary development for maintaining grip on wet surfaces and tools. That got me thinking about how the foot might have adapted had its primary purpose been football."
The likes of Mario G?tze, Blaise Matuidi and David Luiz headline the second-gen Nike Magista Obra football boots. For those who prefer a traditionally shaped sockliner, Nike also unveiled a next-gen Nike Magista Opus boot, which will be represented on-field by players such as Sergio Busquets and Andrés Iniesta.
