CHOOSE YOUR BOOT
This season the ‘Goddess of Victory’ collection hits the full stable of Nike Soccer boots. The Mercurial Superfly, Mercurial Vapor, Phantom Venom, Phantom Vision, and Tiempo Legend will all feature a feather pattern inspired by the Winged Victory statue — a symbol of triumph for athletes stepping onto the world’s greatest stage this summer.
With a style for every skillset, there’s just one question: Which one will you choose?
The Mercurial is the go-to boot for speed players, such as Sam Kerr and Wang Shuang. Whether you prefer the high-top Superfly or low-top Vapor, the Merc is engineered to be as light and fast as possible. The targeted plate system strips away excess material for traction only where you need it — acceleration in the forefoot, braking in the heel — while Flyknit wraps underneath your foot for a responsive, second-skin fit.
The Phantom family of soccer boots is based on one principle: precision. For those who use it to put the ball in the back of the net, such as Alex Morgan, the Phantom Venom is the choice boot. Angled rubber ridges on the striking zone put spin on the ball for shots on goal and accurate set pieces.
If you’re more like Fran Kirby and use your precision to command the ball, the Phantom Vision is your boot. Bumpy textures across the surface of the upper grip the ball for unmatched control, while hidden ‘Ghost Laces’ give you a clean boot-to-ball connection.
The Tiempo set the precedent for all future Nike Soccer boots and is worn by the hustlers of the pitch who bring grit and tenacity to their position, such as Julie Ertz. A Fit-Mesh liner preserves the fit of the boot and prevents over-stretching so you can play your hardest for the full 90’ as an attacker, playmaker or defender.
