Arda Turan Channels his Inner Magician for Nike

Nike has enlisted the help of Turkish national and Athletico Madrid star Arda Turan to promote the new Magista soccer cleat. Turan, who’s one of the top playmakers in the world, will be featured in a pair of short films in which he plays out the role of his nickname “The Turkish magician.”

The first of the two clips (seen below) alternates back and fourth between the pitch and the stage, showing Turan putt defenders to shame on in front of a packed Calderon stadium crowd on one end and showing him busting magic tricks on the magician’s stage. From the looks of it, he really seems to be into the Magista boot.

The second of the two films will be released in due time. Meanwhile, if you want to do your own magic on the pitch, the Magista is now available for purchase so head over to Nike.
