With the release of the groundbreaking Magista boot, http://nike.com/” target=”_blank”>Nike is set to do no less than redefine how a football boot both looks and performs. Nike Flyknit technology is engineered for football for the very first time, representing four years of R&D in the Nike Sport Research Lab and helped by direct feedback from the likes of Andrés Iniesta of Barcelona and German forward Mario Gotze. Flyknit technology delivers a sock-like fit and allows for strength and support to be knitted directly into the boot. Additionally, a new mid-cut Dynamic Fit Collar is good for a more locked-down fit and increased tactile awareness of the ground and the ball. For protection from water and cold, Nike’s design team developed a special application of NIKESKIN — rated at less than 0.1 mm thick — across the Flyknit upper. Improved 360-degree rotational traction via conical studs and a Pebax-and-nylon plate round out the benefits. Stay tuned for release details.
