Launched as the brand’s new IC silo, we lace up and review Nike’s MagistaX silo inspired by the Magista Obra.
In February this year Nike revealed their brand new Nike FootballX Collection designed for small-sided games consisting of new MercurialX and MagistaX silos. The MagistaX carries an ‘X’ as a nod to the combined number of players in a game of five-a-side. The brand new MagistaX is inspired by it’s older brother the Magista Obra featuring several innovative technologies designed to enhance control and touch.
DESIGN & COLOURWAY: The new black nike MagistaX features a “Street” inspired colourway boasting a simple black and white design with a geometric reflective pattern on the heel and Swoosh logos. This was inspired by the footballers who play under streetlights at night who Nike’s design team met when they were designing these boots. It’s a very simple and modern colourway in one, a colourway that will definitely work for the new MagistaX.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS/COMFORT/FIT/SIZING: Right out of the box the cheap nike MagistaX silos will be super comfortable. Inspired by the Obra the collar wraps your ankle very tightly to offer an unrivalled sock-like feel and fit. The inclusion of Lunarlon in the sole enhances comfort and support under your feet. The MagistaX is much more wide fitting than the MercurialX while you should definitely go true to size. These boots are definitely a boot you should try before you buy.
