Phantom GT is the most data-driven boot Nike has ever created. During the creation process, scientists in the Nike Sport Research Lab (NSRL) spent countless hours analyzing the various angles and intensities with which the ball comes onto and off of a boot when playing soccer.
They questioned how the ball connects with the boot, creating a pressure maps and a basic guide of important data points. The design of the Phantom GT (Generative Texture) used these digital data sets to create a boot built to help perfect feel on the ball and unleash a player’s creative skills.
