Australian Player Shows Off Modified Unreleased Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2016 Boots

This was too early. Adelaide United winger Craig Goodwin has already debuted the upcoming Nike Hypervenom Phantom Boots Colorway in Saturday's match against Pert Glory. And while the Green Glow, Silver Metallic and Black boots he debuted are not expected to be released before early next month, he even laced up in a modified version of the yet-to-be-released boots to make this boot spot even more special.

Craig Goodwin Debuts Modified Green Glow Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2016 Boots

Close-up pictures of the boots that are set to be released in early February 2016 (thanks to our friends from Botas de Jugadores for the spot).

Boasting the design of the Green Glow Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2016 Soccer Boots, the cleats worn by the 24-year old midfielder are not only unreleased but also modified, standing out on the pitch.

The non-modified upper of the turquoise Nike Hypervenom Phantom Boot worn by Australian midfielder comes with black details and Metallic Silver for the Swoosh. The standard FG sole plate boasts an one-of-a-kind splatter graphic pattern. So as the upper and the sole plate are as usual, which part of his boots is then special?

It's the missing Dynamic Fit collar. In line with various of Nike's high-profile players, who previously also cut off the sock-like collar (including Isco, Thiago Alcantara, Arturo Vidal and Kovacic), the quite unknown young Australian footballer also removed the exclusive element of the Phantom version of the Hypervenom.
