First-Gen Nike Phantom Vision 1 vs Next-Gen Nike Phantom Vision 2 - Every Detail Compared

Monday, 20 January 2020
Nike last week revealed the next-generation Nike Phantom Vision football boot silo, the Nike Phantom Vision 2. With the launch of the boots being on January 23, we today compare every detail of the Nike Phantom Vision 1 and 2.

Nike Phantom VSN 1 vs Phantom VSN 2 Soccer Cleats


The next-gen Nike Phantom VSN 2 soccer cleats again have a Flyknit upper with a lace cover and a texture on it for better ball control in all conditions. However, a closer look reveals that there are not only visual changes.

The NG Phantom Vision 2 now have a boot upper that is constructed with a symmetrical Flyknit external layer. An external heel clip is notched for better lateral containment, as well as adding structure and support to one of the main irritation zones.

The PhantomVSN 2 texture is significantly reengineered and informed by four different quadrants — medial trap zone, strike zone, knuckle zone and dribble zone. Additionally, a 20 percent thinning of materials across the touch zones helps increase ball control.

The cuff (collar) has been lowered under the medial malleolus bone to maximize ankle mobility versus containment, and pull tabs were added for a better entry.

Sole Plate

The sole plate of the Nike Phantom Vision 2 2020 cleats is exactly the same as the one of the current generation.

Nike Phantom VSN 1 vs Nike Phantom VSN 2 Football Boots - Overall

The next-generation Nike Phantom Vision 2 boots are not a revolution, but an evolution for the silo. They bring many small new changes that likely make them a better boot - we would have liked a bit more changes, however, especially for more "excitement".

The Nike Phantom VSN 2 2020 football boots will be available for around 250 USD (220 Euro, 190 GBP).
