Alex Morgan '100 goal' Nike PhantomVNM EliteLadies and gentlemen, it's not often you run into a player who's scored 100 goals for their national team. In fact, it's a feat so rare in football that Morgan is only the 7th USWNT player to do it. Think of all the hundreds of stars that team has churned out over the decades, she's only #7. In international women's soccer, she's the 17th player to hit this high mark. This is a feat that takes so many skills to achieve; availability, consistency, a wicked eye for goal, and no little footballing ability. All hail the most famous #13 in the world! To celebrate this wonderful individual achievement, Nike's given Alex Morgan a shoe of ridiculously remarkable ability and looks. This Special Edition Nike Alex Morgan Phantom Venom Elite FG Soccer Cleat has us in awe with all it brings to the table.
Like every Phantom Venom, this is a shoe that's synonymous with goals, it's built to finish. The color palette is a sophisticated floral take on her national team colors, enclosing a tonal American flag on a platinum Swoosh. Text on the graphic overlay connects her boot to silhouettes past and present: The number 100 appears in the iconic T90 font, a nod to one of Morgan’s all-time favorite boots, while her name is emblazoned in PhantomVNM type. The date and coordinates next to the strike zone represent her first international goal scored on October 6, 2010, in Chester, Pennsylvania.
The Nike Phantom Venom is engineered for powerful, precise strikes that win games. Blades on the instep create spin to control the flight of the ball, while Flywire cables and a flexible HyperReactive plate provide the stability and traction needed to unleash at any moment.
