Nike Air Footscape Magista / by Alex Young

Nike's premier innovators make up NikeLab, "Innovation x Innovators". The advanced creatives have infused the twenty year-old Air Footscape with the modern Magista soccer cleat, creating the Nike Air Footscape Magista. Working from the sole up, this reimagined sneaker features Air Footscape Freemotion tooling that mimics the natural shape of the foot, while the athlete's natural range of motion stays in tact. Nike also notes, "An encapsulated Air-Sole unit in the heel provides added cushioning." NIKESKIN, which appears on the Magista boot, is replaced with a Flyknit upper increasing breathability, stretch, and support, much like a sock. The Footscape Magista's heel counter is crafted leather, taking a direct cue from the cleat. This lifestyle shoe is tied together by the Swoosh that is constructed with a tonal, protective film supplying additional texture to the Nike Air Footscape Magista's Flyknit makeup.
