A boot that has got plenty of coverage over the past week from the players wearing them is the latest colorway in the Nike Hypervenom series. It is officially listed as a Neo Lime/Total Crimson/Black and on-pitch they have been making a pretty solid impression. In particular, several attacking Manchester United players have taken to the range, with Danny Welbeck, Adnan Januzaj and Wayne Rooney performing well over the Christmas period while wearing this version.

Obviously, the Hypervenom Phantom is not intended to be a follow-up power release to the T90 Laser range. They are a replacement, but Nike has completely remodeled the technology and is looking to provide players with a much different type of performance. Definitely geared toward attacking styled players, with the final 7.2oz product ensuring a lightweight feel and full impact acceleration in-game. Nike has been drumming the notion of “agility” since the Hypervenom was released. It is feature of the boot that they really want fans to embrace and connect with the new silo. It seems to be their way of moving forward and progressing with the speed of the modern game.
For those interested in a pair, check our Hypervenom Phantom review for more details on how they perform. The key thing to remember is that they are designed to accommodate a wider fit through the forefoot, much the opposite of something like the Nike Vapor series that sits a lot of more snug.
