"Flyknit is a material and method of manufacturing that allows us to design footwear that revolutionizes fit, creating a sock-like feel against the foot,” said Phil McCartney, VP of Sport Performance Footwear. “We’re building on Flyknit’s game-changing potential and adapting it specifically to football. The second-skin nature of Nike Flyknit technology places the foot closer to the ball and creates a supernatural fit."

The Magista ‘s Nike Flyknit construction offers a snug fit at the arch, heel and forefoot, and the added element of a Dynamic Fit collar hugs players in, locking them down in the boot.

The Dynamic Fit Collar’s purpose is to make the foot and ankle feel like one body part, rather than conventional boot design which stops at the ankle. The continual transition from foot to ankle ensures you don’t disrupt your body’s natural movements.

Through player feedback, Nike discovered that that the Dynamic Fit collar not only provided a more locked-down fit, but that players also felt more confident and more aware of their movements.

To provide additional strength and lock-down for multi-directional movement, designers added Brio cables. These cables are knitted directly into the one-piece upper and lock the eyelet into the outsole, creating strength similar to a suspension bridge.

Modern midfield players like Andres Iniesta and Mario Gotze stop, decelerate and move in multiple directions while controlling the ball during games. For that type of player, Nike has returned to a conical stud configuration on the sole plate to allow for 360° movement, which is unique to Magista.

On the soleplate Pebax® and nylon helps to improve traction. The compressed nylon delivers strength while remaining incredibly light. Combined with the Pebax, the structure allows for flex and increased movement with the foot.

The Nylon extends to the big toe and acts as a chassis to help players plant and then spring off the ground for more explosive speed. They have also also removed the insole board which lowers the player’s centre of gravity therefore improving traction

For consistent contact and increased control, the Magista features a 3D-knit textured upper, which provides aggressive texture to create friction on the ball for accurate dribbling and striking, all the attributes of a Magista player.

Traditional boot construction methods required additional layers to provide friction for control, which leads to the foot being further away from the ball, FlyKnit reduces those layers, 3D knit is new for Nike and for football providing great ball feel in a minimal package.”

One of the main considerations when using FlyKnit for a football boot was the weather conditions. Water retention compromises touch and feel. To protect the foot from this happening, Nike’s design team developed a special application called NIKESKIN placed over the top of the flyknit Flyknit. The skin itself is no more than 0.1 mm thick — thinner than a sheet of paper — and melts onto the knit to help protect from water that provide protection. Added to that, the Flyknit yarns don’t absorb water.
