It has been a few weeks since Nike introduced us to their revolutionary new Magista boot, and now on the verge of their release the swoosh has announced they will get the NikeID treatment. After a heavy hitting initial media release, this is a refresher for fans that allows them to again take the spotlight after several weeks in a state of hiatus. What it means is that fans are going to be able to use NikeID options to customize the design of the boot to their exact color specifications.
Players can select from two plate options to fit their playing needs, FG (advanced traction on firmer grass fields) or SG-Pro (for extra grip on softer ground). For personalized style, players can select an overlay from a variety of solid colors, or choose a clear overlay to expose the Magista’s Nike Flyknit technology. The Swoosh, Swoosh border, and laces are also available to customize from a variety of color options, with a special graphic option available on the Swoosh.
For the first time on NIKEiD, football players can mimic the personalization elements commonly seen on top athletes and select their jersey number; 1 of 12 country flags; or personalize with a custom name or nickname. Five unique icons specific to the Magista will also be available for added personalization. Check the slideshow below that features several of the color options that will be available.
We have already tested the Magista for those that want more information on the boots performance, but to summarize they are about as advanced as any boot we have ever seen with a high level of comfort through wear. Of course, they have some negatives as you would expect with a first generation release.
The Nike Magista iD will be available to customize at nike.com/NIKEiD beginning April 29.
