Who should NOT buy this takedown soccer cleat from Nike

It's not unusual for soccer cleats to need some time for them to be properly broken in. However, there are just players who need their shoes to hit the ground running. These athletes may find the Phantom GT2 Academy MG a bit of a drag. The Adidas Predator 20.2 is a good alternative. If they want to stick with Nike, the original Phantom GT Academy MG is a good pick.

There are not a lot of soccer cleats that easily appeal to players with wide feet. Fortunately, Mercurial Superfly 9 is a very welcome exemption. Wide-footers who find the Phantom GT2 Academy MG a little too tight can go for this model and its takedown versions.

Phantom GT2 Academy MG: A good pick

One of the wearers of the Phantom GT2 Academy MG is so happy that they declare, "These cleats are money!" Two others say that this shoe exceeds their expectations and that it is "absolutely amazing."

Good bite on the ground? You get it!

The spikes on the outsole of this Nike soccer shoe are nicely arranged. This results in a really strong bite on various surfaces, most especially natural grass.

Enjoy high levels of comfort

If there's something that a good number of reviewers agree on, it's that this soccer cleat really feels so comfortable. "[It's] comfortable to wear several days in a row," says one of them enthusiastically.

Even with all these good things, it is still important to note here that this shoe still needs time for break-in.

Foot containment? Not a problem
