Nike Phantom GX - Tech Features

The Nike Phantom GX football boots are made for the players who are "creating on the ball through precision touch, ripping shots through a keyhole in the top shelf".

What is revolutionary, according to Nike, is Nike Gripknit. Nike Gripknit is a sticky material that provides better touch to the ball. It covers the first 2 laces, taking up more surface area. It molds to the shape of your foot and gives you an equal grip in wet or dry conditions.

The Nike Phantom GX soccer boots come with Nike's ghost lacing system. It is designed to let you forget about your shoelaces. An elastic knit cover offers access to the laces for tying and provides a cleaner cleat-to-ball connection.

Asymmetry in the collar and heel provides comfort. Soft elements in the heel make for an easy break-in process and help reduce irritation and pressure without compromising stability and structure. The Flyknit collar gives you comfort and snugness around the ankle and lower leg.

What is also very interesting about the Nike Phantom GX is the sole plate/outsole. Tri-star studs (the highest number and biggest variety of any Nike cleat) work with forefoot flex grooves to help unlock change of direction.

A non-performance element of the Nike Phantom GX is the squiggly line on the outsole. " It matches your typical on-field movements, which push forward then zigzag before a strike."

Exclusive: Nike to Launch New Nike Phantom GX Boot Silo

The Nike Phantom GX soccer cleats replace the Nike Phantom GT. We expect this edition to be debuted in the 2022 World Cup by players like De Bruyne, Kimmich and Carvajal. We might see both the Phantom GT and GX in the World Cup. The Phantom GT will be discontinued after the 2022 World Cup at the latest.

We expect them to be launched ahead of the 2022 World Cup

Nike Phantom GX 'Launch' - Hyper Pink/White/Black/Metallic Copper

This image shows the Nike 'Launch' Phantom GX soccer cleats.

The Nike Phantom GX soccer boots boast a stylish look in a bright pinkish red, combined with black, white, and copper. Officially, we expect the colors to be Hyper Pink/White/Black/Metallic Copper.

What is most fascinating is the chrome sole plate. It has a stunning Hyper Pink/Copper Metallic shimmering effect.

Indeed, it is the same color scheme as other cleats from Nike's 2022 World Cup pack, and so certainly part of the Qatar pack.
