The third release in the Future DNA series has arrived, with Nike dropping a boot that mixes the modern day PhantomVNM with iconic T90 vibes. Like other releases in the series, the Nike Phantom VNM “Future DNA T90” is an opportunity for players to wear a boot that features modern performance while paying homage to a classic Nike design.
Originally released in 2002, the Nike Air Zoom Total 90 II was the perfect blend of comfort, power and precision. Made of soft KN-100 — a strong, light material — the boot’s namesake stemmed from the creation of a cleat that would support player comfort for the total 90 minutes of a match. The cleat featured asymmetrical, off-center lacing for a larger boot-to-ball surface (which helps create a cleaner strike), as well as Zoom Air units in the outsole for optimal traction and stud pressure reduction.
The Nike Phantom VNM Future DNA T90 pays tribute to its predecessor’s classic black, white and red colorway, and translates the 2002 cleat’s goal of precision through modern Phantom VNM technology to facilitate a powerful strike. Most notably, the new boot comes equipped with a Precision Pwr strike zone in the instep — 13 ridges set at specific angles and ascending heights to help keep the ball down and to provide a bite on its surface.
