Nike’s Phantom GT Soccer Shoe Is Its Most Data-Driven Boot To-Date

Nike has always been at the forefront of research and development, especially in the case of athletically-inlined footwear. Football, for instance, is one of the world’s most adored pastimes, and with the evolution and reevaluation of skills, abilities, and on-pitch talent, the time to revolutionize the sport’s on-foot accessories is now. To achieve this, the brand has introduced the Phantom GT Football boot — the most data-driven cleat that Nike has ever created.

At a glance, the Phantom GT exudes an aura of futuristic readiness. Created and informed by the brand’s lauded Sport Research Lab (NSRL), the unique shoe takes on its all-new “Generative Texture” — an exterior pattern created by the study of intricacies in terms of boot/ball contact, thanks to the utilization of pressure maps and data points — to provide the perfect, personalized feel for creative, control-obsessed athletes. Following two years of development, the team agreed on the shoe’s current design, complementing its revolutionary upper with a high-performance soleplate, a more rigid heel, and a cutting-edge Hyperquick System, which maintains unparalleled on-pitch performance due to its generative chassis, agility studs, and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) traction pattern. We’ve only skimmed the surface of the Phantom GT, so head over to Nike’s website, where the shoe is available for purchase at a price point of $250.

Purchase: $250
