We all know the outcome from the Heineken Cup last Saturday and how it was Jonny’s final match on British soil but Nike also decided to mark the high profile occasion by unleashing their revolutionary Magista Obra boot on the rugby public.
With all eyes on the action, it was Toulon’s Drew Mitchell who also drew plenty of attention by wearing Nike’s latest design which are rather different from your typical pair of boots.
Created for unstoppable play-making, rugby will never be the same again as an entirely new playing experience awaits with the Nike Magista Obra.
For those of you not already aware, which there are probably quite a few of, the Magista Obra brings a whole new concept of design and materials to the rugby field. Packed full of innovative features, this is certainly not a case of all show and no action but rather an entirely new level of performance.
Immediately distinguished by the Dynamic Fit Collar, this delivers a locked-down feel to simply make the boot feel like an extension to your foot rather than an addition. A simple concept which is all about snug comfort that you will hardly even feel.
Continuing the comfort theme and Nike’s lightweight Flyknit technology acts as a second skin for a sock-like feel while the addition of NikeSkin helps protect your feet in the wet and cold making for ideal wear throughout the season.
Not done yet and Nike continue to push the boundaries of design and creation with the inclusion of Brio cables. These provide additional strength and lock-down for multi-directional support and movement by being knitted directly into the upper and lock the eyelet into the outsole.
With the domestic season coming to an end next weekend and plenty of Test matches lined up through the summer, expect to see plenty more of the Magista Obra both on the training ground and the international stage over the coming months.
