Next-Gen Nike Phantom Vision II Elite 2020 Debut Boots Revealed - 'Future Lab' Pack

As expected, Nike has just officially presented the second-gen Nike Phantom Vision 2, months after we exclusively previewed the alternative black colorway on this site.

Informed by the accuracy and explosiveness of street football, the Nike Phantom Vision II football boots introduce a number of changes to the upper while keeping the same sole plate as the debut gen.

This picture shows the all-new Nike Phantom VSN II football boot.

Nike's designers have come up with a clean look for the generation debut as part of the 'Future Lab' collection. The next-gen Nike Phantom Vision boots are mainly red, with the collar and tongue part appearing in black. Silver-metallic brandings, including a black-outlined Swoosh on the outside front, complete the design.

A smaller Swoosh can be seen on the instep, with the QuadFit and ACC brandings placed on the side of the heel in silver. The lace cover appears almost the same as on the first gen.

In terms of tech, the next-gen Nike Phantom Vision II still features the trademark lace cover (Ghost Lace system) found on the Phantom Vision I. Pull tabs were added to the collar to make it easier to put the boots on and off.

The upper of the Nike Phantom Vision 2 was split into four parts - medial trap zone, strike zone, knuckle zone and dribble zone, which feature a significantly different external structure to match the specific needs of each. The materials across all touch zones are 20 percent thinner than on the first generation.

As suspected earlier, the sole plate of the next-gen boots is almost identical to what Nike used on the first generation.
