Just released yesterday, we were lucky enough to get our hands on one of the very first pairs of the second Nike Magista Obra 2 colorway. Swaying right across the color spectrum, this release is vastly different from the intro version. Although it looks like a Red, the upper actually has a lighter shade of gray that runs through the heat zone region. And finishing out the look, Nike has added a hit of Red to the signature swoosh.

Many of you will be looking for information on performance and sizing here, so I’ll try fill some small gaps before I post the official review. I had a chance to wear the release colorway in a game last night, and again for a training session this morning. One thing is clear; these nike sock soccer cleats already exceed any expectations I had for them. They are incredibly comfortable, from the feel of the upper to the balanced traction underfoot. And they just feel right to play in.
