Phantom VNM Overview - Elite vs Pro vs Academy vs Club

Following the silo's reveal last week, let's take a look at all the different tiers of Phantom Venoms that will be available, from the much-seen Elite to the rather basic 'Club'.



Phantom Venom Elite - $250



  • Nike Flyknit constructed upper integrates areas of high breathability stretch and support. The one piece tongue-less design virtually eliminates seams for comfort.
  • Flywire cables link directly into the laces to wrap your midfoot. They move within the upper for a dynamic fit that adapts to your foot.
  • Asymmetrical lacing system expands the striking area. The Flyknit constructed upper covers the lower half of the laces to create a clean surface.
  • Injected blades on the instep help create spin on the ball for precise powerful strikes.
  • Honeycomb micro-texture is moulded into the toe and vamp for advanced ball control.
  • Nike All Conditions Control (ACC) technology provides consistent ball control in wet and dry conditions.
  • Contoured sockliner wraps and cushions your foot while the textured NikeGrip top cloth helps hold your foot in place eliminating slippage within the boot.
  • HyperReactive plate flexes in key areas for consistent contact with the field and multidirectional traction on firm-ground pitches.
  • Rounded diamond studs in the forefoot provide rotational traction while chevron studs in the midfoot and heel ensure quick lateral cuts and stability.
