NikeFootballX releases new seasonal colorways of the MagistaX, MercurialX and HypervenomX in both indoor court (IC) and turf (TF) versions that anticipate the surfaces and dynamic underfoot-play intrinsic to small-sided football. Notably, the boots feature recycled Nike Grind rubber on high-abrasion, drag areas to enhance durability on hard surfaces.
Nike Football is known for revolutionising the game through innovations like Nike Flyknit and Dynamic Fit collars. But Nike’s design team grew up wearing the era’s leather boots and retains high regard for the material, as well as the soft touch associated with it. Collectively, the team began exploring the potential of fusing leather to Nike’s iconic football silhouettes in 2014. Their thinking quickly evolved into experimentation and, ultimately, a premium collection of hybrid leather boots: Nike Tech Craft.
Nike Tech Craft strategically places a thin layer of leather in high ball-contact areas (the medial and lateral sides of the forefoot) on each of Nike’s four football boot styles — Hypervenom, Magista, Mercurial and Tiempo. Each boot remains true to its original aesthetic and performance attributes, but with the soft touch and classic appeal of leather.
This June and July Nike will unleash four of the most innovative pieces of performance footwear that the beautiful game has ever seen. The Hypervenom, Tiempo V, Magista and Mercurial Superfly will converge on the feet of football’s greatest players on sport’s greatest stage.
Meet the Magista, Nike’s first venture into the football boot market with their groundbreaking Flyknit Technology. Offering an unprecedented fit, feel and control on the ball, the knitted bootie will change the way we view boots forever.
