Nike Magista 2016 Overview - Obra vs Opus vs Orden vs Onda vs Ola

In the next days, the highly anticipated Nike Magista II football boots will go on sale. This means that not only the Magista Obra II and Opus II, both of which have been covered extensively on here, will be launched, but also a host of so-called takedown versions that are aimed at providing select features of the high-end cleats at a less steep price point. Let's take a detailed look at them.



Nike Magista Obra II



The top-end model f the second-gen Nike Magista remains the Obra. Boasting a Flyknit upper and a Dynamic Fit collar, the Nike Magista Obra 2 cleats add a new 'Ball Texture' and feature an impressive gradient upper design, reminiscent of a heatmap.

Nike Magista Opus II



The second highest-priced model and the only one besides the Obra to receive significant on-pitch support from professionals, the new Magista Opus 2 is quite similar to its predecessor, the Magista Opus. Retailing at $230, is also features a 3D texture in key touch areas.

Nike Magista Orden II



New with the second generation, the Nike Magista Orden, retailing at $170, receives a heightened collar akin to that of the Obra. The upper itself, bar the collar, is not made of knitted material though and more similar to that of the Opus.

Nike Magista Onda II



Retailing at $75, the Nike Magista Onda II is the next alternative with a regular low cut. The 3D texture is not as pronounced as on the higher-priced models and the same applies to the upper heatmap print.

Nike Magista Ola II




The cheapest option of the bunch, the Nike Magista Ola II doesn't have an awful lot to do with the higher-priced versions. The upper structure is only painted on and the sole plate is generic.
