Iniesta Receives Special Edition Nike Magista For Final Game

Paying tribute to the talismanic Iniesta, Nike have marked the last game in which he will grace the Camp Nou as a Barcelona player by producing a special edition pair of Magista boots for the icon. Carrying commemorative detailing and a reworked take on the recently release 'Just Do It' pack, it's an individual offering for a player truly unique in stature.

The one-off pair of Magista Opus boots have been given a tailored finish with a pearl upper partnered with gold detailing and those famous FC Barcelona colours. Details on the boots include the date of his debut; '29-10-2002' and the infinity symbol (that was also added to a special edition jersey) as a sign of his legacy that he leaves at the club. On the sole plate reads the words ''El éxito es la suma de pequeños esfuerzos repetidos día tras día" which when translated mean, "Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day after day".

Iniesta brought an end to his incredible career at Barcelona on Sunday evening, captaining his side to a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad at the Nou Camp. The legendary midfielder brought the curtain down on his glittering Barca career, having won 32 trophies during his 16-year spell with the La Liga giants.

While it may be Iniesta's last game in a Barcelona shirt, it will be his first in the recently revealed 2018/19 Barcelona jersey. The design is inspired by Camp Nou’s uniting force against the city’s 10 districts: Les Corts, Sants-Montjuïc, Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, La Barceloneta, Sant Martí, Ciutat Vella, Gràcia, Horta-Guinardó, Nou Barris and Sant Andreu. Each of those districts is represented on the jersey by a stripe and, in a marked shift from last season, every one is of even width.
