Closer Look: Sergio Busquets' Custom Nike Magista Opus II

Recently, a training picture allowed for a particularly clear look at the boots of Barcelona midfield anchor Sergio Busquets. And, as expected and so many other players, Busquets' football boots only resemble the model that is sold to the public at first glance.

The most important part of Busquets' Magista Opus is definitely the sole plate, since the upper appears to be identical to the regular version of the shoe, including the infamous 3D-texture that is designed to offer improved control.



The sole plate, however, doesn't have a lot in common with the one of the retail version, one that was heavily updated for the second generation. Instead it seems as if Busquets prefers the sole plate from the Nike Tiempo Legend IV, a boot that was originally released quite a few years ago.In order to make it easier to update the custom cleats for new colorways, Nike opted for a translucent material.
