The Ready Pack Lineup
- Phantom GX: Bright Crimson Gripknit upper, black heel, white soleplate.
- Phantom Luna: Designed for female athletes, Bright Crimson color dominates.
- Air Zoom Mercurial Vapor 15 and Superfly 9: Predominantly white base with a strong heel graphic.
- Tiempo Legend 10: White primary color, black Swoosh branding, and bright crimson around the cuff and tongue area.
Tiempo Legend 10: A New Era of Comfort
The all-new Tiempo Legend 10, for instance, features white as its primary color, with the Swoosh branding and heel detailing standing out in a bold black outline. The bright crimson is then used around the cuff and tongue area.
The Tiempo Legend 10 is noteworthy for its lack of leather, replaced instead by FlyTouch Plus. This makes the Tiempo Legend 10 the lightest Tiempo to date, and 55 percent less water-retentive than previous versions. FlyTouch Plus also provides a grippy feel that ensures a consistent touch on the ball, whether it’s wet or dry.
Phantom Luna: Designed for Female Athletes
The Phantom Luna is a standout in the ‘Ready Pack’, specifically designed with the female athlete in mind. The boot is dominated by the Bright Crimson color, a bold and vibrant choice that reflects the energy and passion of the players who wear them. The black and white accents, appearing in the branding and on the studs of the Cyclone 360 soleplate, add a sleek, modern touch to the design.
But the Phantom Luna is more than just a stylish boot. It’s engineered for performance, with features tailored to the unique needs of female athletes. The lower cuff is designed to accommodate the female ankle, providing a comfortable fit without sacrificing support. The higher collar, on the other hand, provides increased lockdown, ensuring the boot stays secure even during the most intense moments of play.
The Cyclone 360 soleplate is another standout feature of the Phantom Luna. It features a circular stud pattern near the toes, allowing for rotational traction on any surface. This design gives players the ability to plant, pivot, or push off in one motion, providing the agility and speed needed to outmaneuver opponents.
Air Zoom Mercurial Vapor + Superfly: Striking New Look
The Air Zoom Mercurial Vapor 15 and Superfly 9 are not just about aesthetics; they’re about pushing the boundaries of performance. Like the Tiempo, these cleats feature a predominantly white base, but they stand out with a bold heel graphic that proudly displays the ‘Air’ branding. The black Swoosh branding on the forefoot and the black stud tips add a touch of contrast, creating a sleek and modern look.
But what sets these cleats apart is their innovative design features. The Mercurial Vapor 15 is known for its lightweight construction and responsive cushioning, providing players with the speed and agility they need on the field. The Superfly 9, on the other hand, is renowned for its high-top design that offers extra support, making it a favorite among players who demand both comfort and style.
Both models are equipped with Nike’s groundbreaking Flyknit technology, which offers a second-skin fit and enhances ball control. They also feature Nike’s All Conditions Control (ACC) technology, ensuring optimal ball control in both wet and dry conditions.
Phantom GX: Perfect Interaction with the Ball
Last but certainly not least, we have the Phantom GX. This cleat is a game-changer, featuring a vibrant Bright Crimson color on the Gripknit upper, contrasted with a sleek black heel and white accents on the soleplate. This color combination is not only eye-catching but also symbolizes the fiery spirit of the players who wear them.
But the Phantom GX is more than just a pretty face. It’s available in two variations: low-cut for those who prefer a traditional fit and dynamic fit for players who want a more secure, sock-like feel. This means you can choose the style that best suits your playing style and comfort preferences.
The standout feature of the Phantom GX, however, is Nike’s innovative Gripknit technology. This technology is designed to provide the perfect interaction with the ball. It offers just the right amount of stickiness – enough to give you extra control when you’re handling the ball, but not so much that it interferes with your quick movements and passes. This balance makes the Phantom GX an excellent choice for players who want to enhance their ball control without sacrificing speed or agility.
