It’s not a surprise at this point in time that the Nike Hypervenom Phantom II is one of the popular boots on the market. You can find all of the tech specs and even what we thought of the second-generation attacking boot from Nike by checking out the full written review.
Neymar has headlined each generation of the Hypervenom and has been given his own colorway that he will exclusively wear on the pitch for Barcelona and Brazil. Although this one doesn’t feature his logo or come in a special release, this Green Strike color is made for the brilliant Brazilian. The boot only features two colors on the upper with the vibrant Green Strike making up the majority of the upper while black makes up the accent colors. The new Phantom already stands out on the field but adding the insanely bright green to the boot will make any player in these impossible to miss.
Checking out the soleplate, we actually see a different pattern from the launch colorway and the orange colorway released in the same pack. As cool as this pattern is on the glass nylon soleplate, it won’t last forever. Nike include a tag stating that the pattern will fade away over time when using the Green Strike Hypervenom. I personally love the Hypervenom Phantom, I wear the launch color as much as I possibly can. Brighter boots have become more popular over the last few seasons with Neymar being one of the headlining athletes to embrace brighter color ways. The Green Strike color will suit the Barcelona star well as he loves the spotlight and is blossoming into one of the best players in the world before our eyes.
