What happens when you mix a Nike Phantom VNM with ‘TechCraft’? It leaves you with a super premium boot with supreme leather upper. Not to much more can be said to introduce you to the latest Nike Phantom VNM. Less chit chat, let’s get into it…

So, why are these boots so special? Well, they go against the grain of Nike’s relentless efforts to continually make their boots lighter and sleeker, helping you go faster when it really matters. I mean, this boot isn’t heavy by any means, but the K-leather on the upper of these rare boots is a sharp change of direction for Nike.

Your standard VNM uses a super-light one-piece Flyknit upper with a moulded micro-texture on the toe and vamp to help you bring the ball under your spell. These still have the dimpled toe area and injected blades on the instep but they’ve been given a leather facelift to give you the best chance of complete control.

One thing’s for certain, if you can’t get hold of the ball in the Nike Phantom VNM Tech Craft edition boots then maybe football isn’t the sport for you because you really have no excuses with these on.

Now, Nike have done this before with the Nike Mercurial Vapor XIII Tech Craft edition drop a few months ago and, of course, they are no stranger to leather as we see on the latest Tiempo. But Nike simply don’t do very many Tech Craft releases so if you’re into these then make your move now because they don’t come around often. The last major Tech Craft drop before the Vapor release in September was way back in 2017 and those absolutely flew.

Now, we’ve gone over the leather and why you should sit up and take notice of these boots but let’s discuss the elephant in the room – the stunning look of these boots. They are so lit and that premium gold detailing on the black leather is just insane. You’ve got the Swoosh outline, tech call outs boot branding and style points in a classy gold which is complimented by the chrome soleplate.

Other than the leather upper and soleplate, tech-wise these boots are the same as other VNMs and deliver game-defining quality in and around the box.

These boots will not hang around for long so head over the proud home of the world’s largest boot room at HERE to grab a pair of these Tech Craft Phantom VNM boots because you don’t want to wait another two years for your next chance, do you?
