While we’d love to see what the MagistaX Proximo would have on offer without the collar, we’ll be singing the praises for this boot from the rooftops.
- Sporting the same upper as the Nike Magista Obra II, the Nike MagistaX Proximo II Turf cleat has been designed with a Flyknit upper featuring 3D bumps. These bumps are especially prominent in the most used areas of the foot for better feel and ball touch.
- This Nike Magista model has a Scalloped Dynamic Fit collar. This set-up creates an anatomically correct fit linking the player’s lower leg to the foot without disrupting motion.
The Nike MagistaX Proximo II Turf cleat has a secure, sock-like fit. It is available in men’s sizes 5.5 to 13. For women looking to buy this shoe, it is recommended to go 1.5 sizes down for the perfect fit. The central lacing system used in this model is similar to that of the Adidas Predator 18.1 FG and the Adidas Predator 19.1 FG models.
The Nike MagistaX Proximo II Turf has a turf outsole featuring rubber cleats. The densely arranged circular studs on this cleat provide traction for turf courts perfect for change of directions and quick passes.
The turf shoe utilizes a Lunarlon foam cushioning. Hailed as one of Nike’s premium materials, this foam is thirty percent lighter than the usual Phylon insole. This material is highly responsive and springy.
The Nike MagistaX Proximo II Turf features a 3D texture. The bumps are 4.5 millimeters at their highest and are numerous in the areas of the foot that are used the most often. Compressing upon touching the ball, these lumps create a cushioned sensation without adding bulk.
The collar has a Scalloped Dynamic Fit that connects the lower leg and foot. This type of construction ensures cleat lock-down without hindering movement.
Although it has a tongueless design to minimize distractions, this cleat still has a lacing system. Using an asymmetrical construction, it aims to enhance control and adjustability.
- The Nike MagistaX Proximo II has an indoor version.
- This cleat is available in several colorways including Heat Map (Volt/ Black/ Total Orange/ Pink Blast), Black Out (Black/ Gum Light Brown/ Black) and Triple Volt (Volt/ Barely Volt/ Electric Green).
