They came, they saw and they sold out. It wasn’t an unexpected story when the colorful Nike Magista Obra BHM arrived this morning, as each of the available pairs was claimed within the first 10 minutes. Besides the importance of the meaning, the visual design really seems to have resonated with fans who clamored to gain ownership of their pair.
Along with the release, Nike introduced us to some great images of the boots, and we wanted to share them as a mini-celebration of Black History Month. Oh, and for those that missed out on them, we have heard several retailers will have some pairs available in the coming days.
Update: Currently available from soccer.com!
Blasie Matuidi is the player who has been chosen to headline the boot release and BHM. His character and dedication have been a positive force, bringing people together on and off the pitch.
The Black History Month collection honors and celebrates Black heritage, in sport and beyond, around the world while also providing financial support to Nike’s Ever Higher Fund, which was created to bring mentorship, sport and all of its benefits to African-American youth.
