LEAKED: Nike to Release Signature Alex Morgan Phantom Venom Boots for 2019 Women's World Cup

Nike will release a signature edition of the Nike Phantom Venom for Alex Morgan around the FIFA Women's World Cup this summer in what we believe is the first major women's signature cleat to be released to the public by any brand.

Having previously sported the Hypervenom, Morgan made the switch to the newly introduced Phantom Venom silo in the friendlies against France and Spain last month.

Nike Phantom Venom Alex Morgan - Team Red/Metallic Silver

This picture shows the colors to be used for the Alex Morgan Nike Phantom VNM boot.

Alex Morgan's signature Nike Phantom Venom will be predominantly 'team red' with 'metallic silver' logos and trim. No design specifics are known yet, but the colorway points at a possibly similar look to the Mercurial 360 that dropped last summer.

For the 2015 Women's World Cup, which the USA won and which took place in Canada, Nike released its first-ever high-end women's-exclusive collection. This launch was followed up by a number of women's football boot collections, the last of which was released in time for the 2017 Women's Euro in the Netherlands. Since then, however, Nike hasn't released any women's-exclusive colorways.

2015 Women's World Cup Boot Collection

Morgan's US team mate Carli Lloyd received a special edition Nike when she won the 2015 FIFA Women Player of the Year award in early 2016 and another one last year to commemorate her 100th goal for the national team, but neither was released to the public in any major way.

This is set to change with the upcoming Nike Phantom Venom Alex Morgan signature boots, which will be launched in relatively large quantities and will be available at many retailers around the world.
