Well, says Nike, by using such futuristic construction techniques the boot will fit around your feet like a glove, creating a second skin &ndash; or sock-like feel &ndash; while simultaneously delivering the strength, structure and support needed to play ball.</p> <p>Ultimately, the material is designed to bring your foot closer to the ball for enhanced control, and Nike is so confident about its ability, it&rsquo;s claiming &ldquo;no other boot will get your foot this close to the ball.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s like wearing a glove,&quot; says Phil McCartney, Nike&#39;s VP of sport performance footwear. &quot;A glove starts at the wrist, not halfway up the hand. You need that transition so you don&rsquo;t disrupt your body&rsquo;s natural movement. The mid-cut allows the foot, ankle, and lower leg to work together as a single unit, emphasising their natural movements. This isn&rsquo;t a boot that just goes on your foot, it&rsquo;s a boot that works with your foot.&quot;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike Magista knitted football boots" alt="Nike Magista knitted football boots World Cup 2014" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Nike-magista-football-boot-005.jpg?1395311358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> STRONG IN THE TACKLE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>According to Nike, the web-like 3D-knit material on top gives you &quot;a more aggressive texture to create friction on the ball for accurate dribbling and striking.&quot; Great - but surely that&#39;s at the expensive of protection and durability? Not so. Nike assures us that the Magista retains the strength and protection of a conventional boot. Brio cables have also been knitted directly into it, creating strength in the way that a suspension bridge works.</p> <p>So while the Nike Flyknit technology provides a lighter, more comfortable ride, if you come into contact with a player&rsquo;s studs, there&rsquo;ll be no reason to dramatically feign injury while rolling on the floor. Well, none other than the usual ones like trying to win a free kick or get an opponent sent off.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/nikes-power-laces-coming-2015-just-time-marty-mcfly/news" target="_blank">Nike&#39;s Back To The Future power laces coming in 2015</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike Magista knitted football boots" alt="Nike Magista knitted football boots World Cup 2014" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Nike-magista-football-boot-010.jpg?1395311358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> HIGH-TOP OF THE LEAGUE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The use of Nike&rsquo;s FlyKnit tech isn&rsquo;t the only awesome thing about the Magista&rsquo;s design. When was the last time you saw a football boot with a high-top design? According to Nike, that&rsquo;s a Dynamic Fit collar, to give you a locked-down fit and flexibility of movement.</p> <p>But how will they fare on a squelchy, sodden pitch on a Sunday morning? NIKESKIN&rsquo;s your answer. It&rsquo;s a 0.1mm thick layer that essentially melts on to the knit to protect the boot and prevent water damage.</p> <p>If you&#39;re still struggling to believe that a knitted boot - did we mention they&#39;re knitted? - will help you achieve footballing glory, maybe a few half-decent players can convince you.&nbsp;&ldquo;Unbelievable&rdquo;, &ldquo;perfect&rdquo; and &ldquo;futuristic&rdquo; were just some of the words used to describe the Magista boots by Barcelona&rsquo;s Andrés Iniesta and Bayern Munich&#39;s German forward Mario Götze, who have worked closely with Nike bods during the boot&rsquo;s four-year development.</p> <p>&ldquo;The fit of this boot is so unique that I don&rsquo;t think about it when I&rsquo;m wearing it,&rdquo; says Iniesta. &ldquo;It allows me to move the way I need to instinctively and with more confidence.&rdquo;</p> <p>Nike says &ldquo;football will never be the same again&rdquo;, which is a pretty bold statement to make. But with Adidas also revealing its own knitted boot earlier today in the form of the Primeknit FS, there&rsquo;s no denying that footie footwear is undergoing its biggest change since the days when players wore pigs&#39; stomachs on their feet. Or maybe we&#39;re remembering that wrong.</p> <p>Either way, the Nike Magista boots will be available for pre-order on April 29 &ndash; just don&rsquo;t expect to play like Iniesta every time you slip them on.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/it-s-round-it-bounces-it-s-called-brazuca-introducing-new-world-cup-football/feature" target="_blank">Meet Brazuca, the 2014 World Cup football</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Barcelona&#039;s Andres Iniesta helps launch the Nike Magista knitted boot" alt="Nike Magista knitted football boots World Cup 2014" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Nike-magista-football-boot-012.jpg?1395311358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/nike-unveils-knitted-magista-boots-ahead-world-cup/news#comments Health and fitness Nike Sport Wearable tech Thu, 06 Mar 2014 18:57:17 +0000 Nigel Yap 1433379 at http://www.stuff.tv Hands-on video review: Nike+ FuelBand SE – flashy colours, improved sensors and new app smarts http://www.stuff.tv/sg/nike/hands-video-review-nike-fuelband-se-flashy-colours-improved-sensors-and-new-app-smarts/video <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> It&#039;s still like being manacled to your personal trainer – only now he&#039;s bigger, stronger and has upped your exercise regime </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Hands-on video review: Nike+ FuelBand SE – flashy colours, improved sensors and new app smarts " alt="Hands-on video review: Nike+ FuelBand SE – flashy colours, improved sensors and " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Screen%20Shot%202013-10-26%20at%2022.33.34.png?1382922926" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper brightcove-player-wrapper"> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script> <script src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/APIModules_all.js"></script> <div class="brightcove-player"> <object id="myExperience-2772312323001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /> <param name="playerID" value="" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAEgPmGlk~,Fzd-TvXcznw-P3piHaryQBMeIzWITldz" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="2772312323001" /> <param name="autoStart" value="" /> <param name="htmlFallback" value="true" /> <param name="includeAPI" value="true" /> <param name="templateLoadHandler" value="brightcoveTemplateLoaded" /> <param name="width" value="640px" /> <param name="height" value="360px" /> </object> <!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

They created one that was 50 per cent larger than usual to replicate what it felt like for a child to play a console game like Knack. "We realised that if we just made a controller that was scaled up to match the difference between the child's hands and our hands, that we could experience ourselves directly what you can and can't do with the controller," explains PS4 lead architect Mark Cerny.

Dial up a location on the associated smartphone app, and a team of specialists will wing their way over to you to set up the pitch – no matter what time of day it is. The van also comes stocked with <a href="http://nikeinc.com/news/nike-football-fc247">Nike's FC247 footy boots</a> for you to try out – they're designed for small-scale street football, hence the whole "laser pitch" publicity drive.
