Delivers more effective touch on the ball

When the Nike Phantom GT Elite FG was first introduced to the general public, it created quite a stir among its fans speculating what latest innovation this latest release has on offer.

The Phantom GT is dubbed as the most data-driven boot Nike has ever created. Indeed, with its science-backed ball control mechanics, the Flyknit upper is equipped with blade-like nubs, which form a data-driven pattern for a more effective touch on the ball.

The Flyknit upper is undoubtedly comfortable and feels minimal. It is reinforced with an ACC finish to make it more adaptive to changing weather.

Soccer players point out how light the Nike Phantom GT Elite FG is; it totally does not hamper their movement.

Not for wide-footers

Even with the semi-split soleplate, this soccer cleat is still not for wide-footers unless they want blisters and restrictive foot wrapping.

This is also one of those cleats that require time to break in. Athletes point out that this soccer cleat needs some getting used to.

Solid and lightweight grip

The shoe is equipped with the Hyperquick system, which is basically a semi-decoupled sole with strategically placed spikes.

This innovation effectively reduces weight without compromising grip, not even one bit. Because the bladed and "split" conical studs are placed strategically, the traction is great on not only the firm ground but artificial grass as well.

Great for ball control

The blade-like protrusions on the forefoot allow for more efficient ball maneuvering, even in wet conditions.

Nike Phantom GT Elite FG offers a natural streamlined feel

What makes the Nike Phantom GT Elite FG great and revolutionary? It's the fact that it is the debut model of a silo that replaces not one but two successful collections from The Swoosh: the Phantom VNM and the Phantom VSN.
