Why is the Nike PhantomVNM for strikers?
Nike's Hypervenom replacement has 100% been made for goalscorers.
Nike's PhantomVNM FG looks to be a winner.
Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski, Edinson Cavani and Alex Morgan lead the line. The PhantomVNM has been designed to help with the job of putting the ball in the net.
KANE CAN: Nike's main man in the Premier League is all about gaols
The PhantomVNM uses Flywire tech with a Flyknit upper to make the boot have a bigger strike zone (more area to hit the ball).
Flywire is strong to keep the foot steady for sharp turns. Mini hexagon grooves give the boot something to work against when striking for a goal.
They are not the only things that can be used to get some whip, though. Rubber fins [PrecisionPWR strike zone] on the instep give cushioning for a top first touch and help curl the ball with pace.
GOAL GIRL: Alex Morgan is the women's World Cup winners goal threat.
Nike has kept the sole of the boot a little like what was on the Hypervenom. This time though, it is called HyperReactive. The main features are chevron [V-shaped] studs at the front and back.
These will make changing direction rapid, give grip when sprinting and keep the player steady when striking.
