Disgraceful Copy | Kappa Release Nike Magista Obra Boot Clone

This is disgusting. Italian sportswear manufacturer Kappa has released an obvious copy of the famous Nike Magista 2014 World Cup Boots this week for this indoor season - The Kappa Rattler Indoor Football Boots.

In March 2014, Nike introduced the revolutionary Nike Magista Obra Football Boots featuring the trademark Dynamic Fit collar. Worn by Mario Götze in the 2014 World Cup Final, the Nike Magista Obra Soccer Cleats turned out to be a huge success for the US-brand. In retrospect, Nike definitely won the 2014 World Cup Battle against German rivals Adidas.

Kappa Rattler Indoor Football Boots

This is the Kappa Rattler Indoor Football Shoe.



The Kappa Rattler Indoor Soccer Shoe features the same color scheme and design as the Nike Magista Obra 2014 World Cup Cleats. Kappa combines the mainly yellow upper of the Rattler Boots with the trademark red and black Honeycomb upper structure of the Nike Magista Cleat.

The Kappa Rattler 2015 Indoor Football Boot also features a Dynamic Fit collar and a tongue-less design, designed for a sock-like fit with no distractions. While the Nike Magista Obra Boots feature a knitted Flyknit upper, the Kappa Rattler Boots feature a soft textile material for comfort and touch.



The outstep of the Kappa Rattler Boots boasts the famous Kappa Omini logo, while the medial side features a scorpion. On the heel area is the lettering Kappa, while the classic indoor sole plate is made for durability and flexibility.

It took Kappa more than one year to copy the famous Nike Magista Obra Boots, so the colorway of the Kappa Rattler Boots is definitely outdated. However, it's expected that Kappa will release more Magista-inspired paint jobs in the coming months.



Interestingly, Kappa also copied the design of Nike's 2015 Training Shirts for the new Borussia Mönchengladbach 15-16 Champions League Kit.



The Kappa Rattler Indoor Football Boots are already available for 65 GBP (85 Euro) at selected retailers.
