If there is something Nike is really good at, it is celebrating the incredible accomplishments of the best international superstars. Earlier today, a special-edition Nike PhantomVNM dropped to commemorate Christine Sinclair’s 185th career international goal — the most scored by any footballer. It didn’t take long for them to arrive, with Sinclair passing Abby Wambach’s 184 goal record during her match on January 29, 2020.
Flooded in Canadian red, the boot features personal details such as her jersey number, a Canadian flag, a quote from her college coach (“You better earn your right to play”) and two nicknames (“Sinc” and “Wonder”). The left sockliner includes meaningful dates and geographic coordinates from Sinclair’s career, while the right sockliner recognizes important figures in Sinclair’s life. An overhead view reveals an outline inspired by the shape of a maple leaf.
No official details on the number of pairs, but as per the norm, this is likely to be a one off pair that will be worn only by Sinclair in a future game.
