Arda Turan Switches to Customized Nike Magista Opus Boots Ahead of Barcelona Debut

Closing in on his FC Barcelona debut, midfielder Arda Turan has opted to switch back to the Nike Magista Opus. Turan, Barcelona's new number 7, had been wearing Nike Tiempo Legend V and VI boots in the last few months.

Arda Turan's Custom Nike Magista Cleats

Arda Turan laced up in the "Metallic Pewter" Nike Magista Opus football boots in Barcelona training this week, a cleat he already wore at Atlético Madrid before changing to the Nike Tiempo Legend in September.

Arda Turan is set to make his long-awaited Barça debut on January 6 in the cup against local rivals Espanyol. And while it looks like he's going to wear Nike Magista boots doing that, they aren't really the standard model available in stores. Instead of featuring the original Magista sole plate, designed to offer rotational agility through conical stats, Arda Turan's silver Magistas come with the stud configuration of the Nike Tiempo.
