Exclusive: Nike to Launch New Nike Phantom GX Boot Silo

Nike will launch a new football silo shortly ahead of the 2022 World Cup - the Nike Phantom GX, replacing the Nike Phantom GT. Thanks to UnderStuds and Boots Culture for pics and info.

We have no exact launch date for the Phantom GX soccer shoes yet - it is very likely that Nike will release the Phantom GX ahead of the 2022 World Cup, while there is a very small chance that we will see the release after the 2022 World Cup, in early 2023.

Nike Phantom GT to Be Replaced With Nike Phantom GX

The Nike Phantom GX football boots are the successor of the Nike Phantom GT silo. Prototypes of the Nike Phantom GX cleats have been worn by many different Nike players, including Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland, Eduardo Camavinga, Joshua Kimmich, Erling Haaland, and Dani Carvajal.

There is no leak of an actual colorway of the Nike Phantom GX football boots yet. The prototypes were either without or blackout.

We have no concrete tech info yet, but the prototypes give us a first impression. There are two different Nike Phantom GX sub-models, one with and another without a collar.
Similar to previous Nike Phantom silos, the Nike Phantom GX football boots are made for accuracy and control. What is particularly interesting is the unique upper layer that is likely made for better passing and shooting accuracy in all weather conditions.

Both the collared and low-cut options try to have no laces in touch and shooting areas. The Dynamic Fit version has a lace cover, the low-cut version has a very short lace area.

The Dynamic Fit Collar option is called "Nike Phantom GX DF". It comes with a lace cover similar to the old Nike Phantom VSN football boots. It was worn by De Bruyne and Carvajal.

Nike Phantom GX (Without Dynamic Fit) - Camavinga, Kimmich & Mount

The second Nike Phantom GX soccer shoe comes without a collar and no lace cover. The boot was worn by Camavinga and Mount.
