News; Nike Hypervenom Phantom FG II Premium Boots Orange/Grey/Black

Published: Monday 20 July, 2015


The first thing that strikes you with the Hypervenom II is the stark contrast from the top of the boot to the jagged colours that run from halfway down the boot to the soleplate. 


 


Moving beyond how the boot looks and down to the important aspects of the boot, the first thing everyone will notice is the new Dynamic Fit Collar. Unlike all the other boots with Nike’s “shiny toy” tech, the Nike Phantom II is only FlyKnit for the collar and the tongue. 


 


The rest of the boot’s build is crafted from a mix of mesh and NikeSkin with a mishmash of FlyWire and creases running all over the boot. For comfort, the boot comes out of the box in a very stiff manner. Where the original Phantom’s NikeSkin was very soft, the Phantom II takes some work before it softens into the final product. Once the upper does loosen up, it blends with the FlyWire to be soft while still providing a great one-to-one fit. The creases in the boot never truly jump out as having a massive contribution to the way the boot functions, but they certainly don’t hurt anything. The massive strike-zone is unobstructed with FlyWire running across it, and we’ll talk about how great it is to address the ball a bit later.


 


A few run-outs after taking the Phantom II out of the box, the comfort that Nike pride themselves on starts to shine. The FlyKnit around the tongue gives you another boot in Nike’s line-up that fits great without having to tie the laces. The laces merely allow you to choose how tight each portion of the boot fits. If this is your first experience with Nike’s FlyKnit, it will certainly be an enjoyable one.


 


With the FlyWire, any fan of Nike knows that the cables are to keep the boot wrapped around your foot and to prevent any rollover when you plant and push off from the ground. In comparison to the Obra and Superfly, the Phantom II really stands above in this department. Quick cuts and turns seem to blend together into a smooth and seamless ride, combining with an extremely dependable conical soleplate to give you as few worries as possible.


 


The soleplate on the latest Hypervenom shares all the visual similarities from the original Phantom, but with some slight alterations. With one of the biggest complaints from the original being that the soleplate was too stiff (even after break-in), Nike made the material a bit thinner on this model... and, it shows. Dependability from a very high quality conical set-up and the thinner material contributing to a higher level of comfort is a win-win. There was also no durability complaints after weeks of wear, despite the material being thinner, and it adds to a fairly impressive level of comfort for a boot that raised so many eyebrows when we saw the connected FlyKnit and NikeSkin upper.
