Arturo Vidal Switches Boot Silos

Bayern München midfielder and Chile international Arturo Vidal has totally surprisingly made the switch from the Nike Mercurial Superfly boot to the Nike Magista Obra for the league match against Wolfsburg.

Arturo Vidal Switches to Nike Magista Obra Boots

Arturo Vidal had been wearing Nike's Mercurial soccer cleat in the past few years.

Arturo Vidal's Nike Magista Obra soccer cleat is the same as the standard version of the knitted control boot. Combining a Flyknit upper with a high-ankle design, the Nike Magista Obra 2 Dark Lightning boots are likely the most popular control boot on the market.

Arturo Vidal had been wearing the quite unsuitable Nike Mercurial silo for several years. In fact, he never wore another Nike silo than the Mercurial boot, while he had been wearing Adidas Adipure boots before the switch to Nike in 2010.

Do you also think that the Nike Magista cleat is a much better fit for the former Juventus and Bayer Leverkusen player? Let us know in the comments below.
