Nike Phantom GT “Scorpion” Set For Release

Phantom GT “Scorpion”

Nike are dropping a very special, secret release with the Phantom GT “Scorpion” set to arrive on Monday, 11/02.

What is the Phantom GT “Scorpion”?

It is a boot that blends nostalgia with the modern-day look of Phantom GT, the Scorpion draws its inspiration from the 2002 Nike “Secret Tournament” advertisement. Featuring a metallic silver upper designed to stand out on pitch, but a bold scorpion logo on the outside.

Nike-Phantom-GT-Scorpion

Launched in March 2002, the campaign centered on a fictional 8-team, 3-a-side tournament, first goal wins. All matches took place in an enclosed “cage” on a ship. Its timing coincided with international play in South Korea and Japan, and with local 3-a-side tournaments staged around the world.

With the Phantom GT Scorpion, the generational link between “Secret Tournament” and boot materializes through a chrome upper and plate referencing the tournament’s ball, painted brush strokes mimicking the on-ship location and the yellow/black hazard stripes framing the goals. Additionally, a lateral scorpion graphic, featuring the phrases “Secret Tournament” and “Engineered For Skills,” updates the original scorpion logo.
