It is safe to say at this point that the Nike PhantomVNM Elite has been fully integrated and accepted by fans. Performance wise, they provide real quality, as we found out while testing them. Designed for finishers, they feature 13 blades on the instep’s precision PWR strike zone, set at specific angles and ascending heights to help keep the ball down if it is mishit and to provide bite on the ball. Remember that this is a boot that follows the DNA of the T90 Laser series, so the addition of a tiered strike element gives them real credibility.
But there is another side to their story, the process of how they were created. Check out the video below, where we get an inside look at the creation of Nike’s PhantomVNM and learn more about how the team’s dynamic robot leg informed the boot’s design. Plus, you have to love seeing some of the prototype versions of the boot!
