Nike drop fire new Phantom VSN II
Another day, another drop and this time we’ve got the third edition of the Nike Phantom VSN II to get stuck into and it’s pure flames. Mostly white but with a pretty sizeable covering of black and reddish-pink details that add a touch of flair, we think the Nike Phantom VSN II Player Inspired boots might be the best of this generation yet.
As you can tell we’re rating this look and it’s a blessing to have seen the VSN II get so many different makeovers since its debut last month with the Kinetic Black and Future Lab packs. White always equals class on a boot and it’s no different here, but we’re loving the laser crimson/pink details on the heel, studs and tongue.
The white elements integrated into the Flyknit upper are a really nice touch, as are the differing colour tech call outs and even the Swooshes feature in black, white and pink across the boot, hinting at the level of thought and design that’s gone into this drop.
More often than not you’ll see a single colour throughout these elements, but they’re carefully placed to offer nice contrast at the heel, forefoot and the Swoosh is almost hidden on the soleplate.
This boot is going to feature on pitch on the feet of a selected number of pros with Kevin De Bruyne leading the pack, and you know it’s going to look the business with that colour scheme which can go with pretty much any kit you can imagine.
They’re bursting with all the technology that the creative, precise players could ever need including Nike’s All Conditions Control coating as well as the reduced Dynamic Fit collar, Ghost Lace system, Quadfit, Flyknit and those bobbles over the forefoot of the upper to maximise control on the ball.
As we’ve seen quite a bit recently, this is a fairly limited drop with firm ground and artificial ground options available at the Elite and Pro levels with the Academy options offering up turf and firm-ground soleplates from Pro:Direct Soccer.
However, there’s a decent amount of extras that come as part of the Players’ Edition pack, including the second version of the Phantom Elite goalkeeper glove, apparel featuring Vaporknit, footballs, shinpads and even hoodies and tees.
You can cop the whole pack exclusively early from the world’s largest bootroom at prodirectsoccer.com right now. Cards on the table here, we think this is the best looking Phantom VSN II yet and we can’t wait to see it on pitch, whether that’s at The Etihad or down the local park.
