The goal that earned Germany the 2014 World Cup gold trophy came off of Mario Götze's Nike Magista boot, and now the Flyknit design teams up with two other Swoosh strikers to create the Nike Soccer "Gold" iD Pack. Already recognizable from the gold cleats Brazil's Neymar was playing in before his injury, the shiny style is now available for customization. Set either the Magista, Nike Mercurial Superfly, or Nike Hypervenom Phantom in the trophy's tone to go with an array of other colors.

Arda Turan is nicknamed "The Turkish Magician" for his amazing ball-handling abilities, range of passing and vision on the soccer pitch. The new Nike Magista futbol boot allows the Turkish attacker to reach his full potential thanks to Flyknit technology that allows the foot to get closer to the ball and to deliver enhanced ball-feel and control. To put the spotlight on both Turan and the Magista before the upcoming World Cup, the Swoosh strategists have put together a two-part video series that puts both parties on full display. The first spot features Turkey's leader at Calderon stadium, then plays back to Turkey's leader on stage as an actual magician. Check out the short film above, grab the Nike Magista here, and keep kicking it with Nice Kicks for part two soon.
After being introduced to the world as the first Flyknit soccer shoe, the Nike Magista has finally seen some game time action.

Check out all the action above and let us know if you plan on picking up a pair when the models debuts on May 22nd.
Nike's first soccer cleats featuring Flyknit are now available for personalized stitching. 2014 seems to be the year of performance high-tops, after the Nike Kobe 9 raised the bar on the basketball floor and the Nike Magista has completely contrasted traditional fútbol boots.

After unveiling the Flyknit-constructed Magista over two months ago, Nike is getting ready to change the game once more by making the innovative soccer shoe available on NIKEiD. From selecting the type of fit to picking the overlay, lace, and Swoosh colors to adding more of a personalized feel by way of the jersey number, player name, and country flag options, the Nike Magista iD will be available for customization come April 29th.
After a tease and a promise to reveal their first Flyknit soccer kick on March 6th, @nikefootball delivers on their guarantee right on schedule with the unveiling of the Nike Magista. It was only a matter of time before Flyknit tech would land on performance sneakers for the pitch, and that day has come, with the Magista sporting a completely knitted upper, underlined by Nike's state-of-the-art rotational traction cleat system. Going against the standard of low-top, soccer boots, Nike opted for a sock-like extension, raising the cleat to a mid-top cut, providing a heightened level of ankle support. Check out Nike's newest addition to the cleated kick family, the Magista, in the photos below, and stay tuned to Nice Kicks for updates on when they'll arrive at retailers.
