As part of the Nike Phantom GT release, the swoosh team also announced an additional boot in the GT Academy FlyEase that would be unleashed on the market.
What is Nike FlyEase? Well, it is an easy-entry footwear system designed to help athletes put on and secure their shoes—with zero compromise to fit and performance. Since its debut, FlyEase technologies have been employed in more than 20 footwear styles across basketball, running and sportswear.
This is the very first time that FlyEase will be used on a soccer cleat!
So, basically, the Phantom GT Academy FlyEase features a fold-down heel for easy entry and a wrap-around strap closure in lieu of laces. The wrap around is actual attached to where the laces would be, allowing you to create a controlled, snug fit around the forefoot. This one could be a real game changer, and it is one that I am very excited to test out.
But, we have to wait a little longer for its release, currently slated by Nike for an unknown date in September.
Once we get official word on a date, we will be sure to share it here first! But it is likely to be around the same time as Premier League action returns to the pitch.
The Phantom GT Academy “FlyEase” is now available at soccer.com.
