The Nike Magista Opus II firm-ground is all about taking creativity to a new level. They are designed for use on firm ground surfaces allowing the user to control the game to their advantage. In addition to that, this athletic shoes features a cleated sole and are good for any serious football player out there. It is no wonder that the Magista Opus II is a favorite of international football stars like Christian Eriksen, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta. In simple words, they allow you to think and play fast on the pitch.

The Nike Magista Opus II FG features a mesh upper and kanga-lite that allows a defining feel or fit and easily moulds to your foot’s natural shape. Furthermore it gives you a better lockdown, aided by the hybrid tongue design to stabilize your foot in place for a nice fit. The Nike Magista Opus II FG is suitable for firm and natural grass surfaces where it allows for acceleration, traction and comfort. It has a conical shape.

The 3D areas on the Nike Magista Opus II FG are placed tactfully on the kanga-lite upper for a smooth first touch. This allows an easy and quick ball manipulation. In addition to that the shoe boasts of Nike’s All Conditions Controlled (ACC) technology on the upper surface which gives a smooth feel of the ball in any type of weather condition, whether dry or wet. The shoe comes in various colors including white, laser orange, volt and black.

Perhaps another improvement on the previous version is the light nature of the shoe. The soleplate has a reduced amount of pebax in the nylon chassis. This has reduced the weight of the soleplate from 85g to 62g. This means the foot is closer to the ground more than before which allows quick change of direction on all sides.

The Nike stud pattern for the Magista Opus II FG was aided in part by the Fine Element Analysis (FEA) technology which is a computerized method that generates data used in designing the soleplate for maximum traction when the player is rotating on firm ground areas. Boots that are fitted with firm ground soleplates should be used on natural grass surfaces, although the underfoot may be firm, when used on this surface they will enhance traction, allow more acceleration and comfort while still distributing pressure equally on the foot.

The Nike Magista Opus II FG textured upper ensures comfort to the feet thus allowing better ball control. The shoe also has a circular pivot area that is suitable for quick turns on the pitch. That means the shoe can be used for agile playmaking. In addition to that the cleats featured on the heel of the shoe allow for quick braking power.

It is important to understand which boots should be used on the surface you are playing. The type of surface affects the longevity and performance of your boots and the risk of injury. Playing using a sole that is not designed specifically for the surface you are on can lead to premature wear or damage to your boots. Furthermore, the manufacturer’s warranty will be invalidated.

"I learned all about life with a ball at my feet." Soccer allows me to push the limitation of creativity and express myself without saying a word. Soccer is my addiction. I train, I play and I repeat every single day. I hope you like my site. Feel free to say hey. I don't bite. :)
