Isco Cuts Off Dynamic Fit Collar of Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Boots

Is this really a surprise? Real Madrid midfielder Isco laced up in modified Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Cleats for the first time in today's Real Madrid training session, after he had worn famously non-modified Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Boots at the start of the pre-season.

The Whites continued their pre-season preparations after they completed their tour of Australia and China on Friday, and are now focused on their Audi Cup debut against Tottenham in the Allianz Arena on August 4.

The close-up pictures reveal that Isco is wearing a modified version of the striking orange Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 2015-2016 Boots, which were released in mid-July 2015. While the upper and the sole plate show no visible modification, Isco cut-off the trademark Dynamic Fit collar of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom Lightning Storm Pack Boots.

Even though the first pictures lack a closer look at the outsole, it's definitely not just a regular Nike Hypervenom Phinish Boot. Isco's Boots feature a striking black graphic pattern on the sole plate, which is an exclusive feature of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Soccer Cleats.

During Real Madrid's first pre-season friendlies in Australia and China, Isco laced up in the regular Wolf Grey Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Boots with a tape hiding the iconic Dynamic Fit collar. However, he wore a non-taped version of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom Boots in training sessions.

He didn't like the Dynamic Fit collar, so he cut it off. What do you think of Isco's decision to cut-off the collar? Let us know in the comments below, and watch out for Isco's Boots in tomorrow's friendly against Tottenham.
